NXT UK has finally arrived.
After months of teases and promises of "coming soon," NXT UK will be available for consumption starting Wednesday, Oct. 17. Here's the release put out by WWE:
WWE today announced that NXT UK, a new weekly episodic series featuring the greatest male and female competitors from the U.K., will stream on WWE Network on Wednesdays, beginning Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. BT/3 p.m. ET.
The one-hour episodes will feature the biggest names from NXT UK, including Pete Dunne, Mark Andrews, Rhea Ripley, Toni Storm, Tyler Bate, Trent Seven and Wolfgang. Joining the NXT UK broadcasting team as backstage interviewer is British broadcasting personality Radzi Chinyanganya, best known for hosting ITV game show "Cannonball," and in his ongoing role as a presenter of the world’s longest-running children’s TV show, the BBC’s "Blue Peter." Calling the action are commentators Nigel McGuinness and Vic Joseph, joined by ring announcer Andy Shepherd and NXT UK General Manager, the legendary Johnny Saint.
“NXT UK is the next step in our global localization strategy, and we are proud to do this in a place where WWE has had a special relationship for more than 30 years,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative.
Episodes of NXT UK were taped as far back as July. Another set of tapings were held in August when they crowned the inaugural NXT UK Women's Champion. Pete Dunne is the current NXT UK Champion.
NXT UK will air on the WWE Network at 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday's and will be available on-demand after that.
