Two matches with big stakes are set for NXT UK on 9/16.
Kenny Williams will face Noam Dar next week in the first of two semi-final matchups in the NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship Contender Tournament also, Lewis Howley and Sam Stoker of Pretty Deadly will face Gallus next week in a non-title tag team action.
Kenny Williams, who was the first to advance in the aforementioned tournament, finds himself in a rare heel vs. heel match with Noam Dar. The winner of this match will be the first finalist in the tournament and will go on to face the winner of Wolfgang vs. Teoman and eventually fight Tyler Bate for the NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship.
In recent weeks, the Gallus boys have made life difficult for Pretty Deadly. Sam and Lewis were the ones who ended Gallus’ historically long NXT UK Tag Team Championship run and Gallus has never let them live it down. Now, they will face off next week in a non-title match with a championship match certainly waiting in the pipeline should the former NXT UK Tag team Champions retain over the incumbents.
Here's the updated card for 9/16.
WWE NXT UK - September 16
- NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship Contender Tournament Semi-Finals: Kenny Williams vs. Noam Dar
- Pretty Deadly vs. Gallus
