Storm, Dunne and Bates be joined on the NXT UK roster by other big names like Mark Andrews, Rhea Ripley, Trent Seven and Wolfgang. Nigel McGuinness and Vic Joseph will call the action on commentary while The Legendary Johnny Saint will shepherd the brand as the General Manager.

The division will continue to travel across England for live events. Here are the dates for the upcoming live NXT UK events:

  • This Saturday, Oct. 13 and Sunday, Oct. 14 at Plymouth Pavilions.
  • Saturday, Nov. 24 and Sunday, Nov. 25 at Liverpool Olympia.

The NXT UK show was announced back in June during the second UK Tournament with Triple H announcing a UK Tag Team and UK Women's Championship to go along with the UK Championship currently held by Dunne.

Similar to the flagship NXT show, NXT UK will tape in advanced and release weekly. The first round of tapings were filmed after the conclusion of the UK Tournament, so WWE has a few weeks in the can.
