As noted, WWE recently announced that the United Kingdom brand will be known as NXT UK going forward, and in addition to the United Kingdom Championship, Tag Team Titles and a Women's Title will also be created for the brand.

"The U.K. has an wonderful talent base and incredibly passionate fans that are deserving of their own showcase", Triple H said in the announcement.

WWE already has a UK Championship, which was unveiled at the conclusion of the first UK Tournament and is now held by Pete Dunne. The WWE's official Twitter account announced the arrival of the UK Women's Championship Title and the UK Tag Team Championship.

Tickets for the events in Cambridge, Plymouth and Liverpool will be available via www.livenation.co.uk and tickets for the Birmingham events will be available via www.insomniagamingfestival.com.

The second UK Tournament is now underway, with some of the first-round matches being uploaded to WWE's official YouTube account.

When WWE held the first UK Championship tournament in 2017, there were rumors that a UK show would make its way to the WWE Network.

That said, NXT UK performers could use the program as a springboard to NXT in the USA after they have built some momentum and garnered a fanbase.

This move by WWE fits into Triple H's recent ambitions for the NXT brand, including the concept of "global localisation". "Especially when you consider the overarching, always there, presence of the main roster".

The press release did not mention who would take part in the WWE NXT UK television show.
