NXT UK is an professional wrestling television program that will be produced by WWE. The show will feature competitors from WWE's NXT UK brand. The show was officially announced during the 2018 United Kingdom Championship Tournament.

History

In a press conference at The O2 Arena on December 15, 2016, "Triple H" Paul Levesque revealed that there would be a 16-man tournament to crown the inaugural WWE United Kingdom Champion. The tournament was held over a two-day period, January 14 and 15, 2017, and aired exclusively on the WWE Network. At the time, it was stated that the championship would be the centerpiece of a new U.K.-based show produced in the U.K., but since the inaugural tournament, it was defended on NXT as well as at independent shows in the United Kingdom. The name of the show, NXT UK, and its premiere was finally revealed during the 2018 United Kingdom Championship Tournament. On June 7, 2018, Johnny Saint was appointed General Manager of WWE's United Kingdom-based brand.
