NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool Preview

January 11, 2019 0 By Nicolas Brosnan

The clock is ticking. The first-ever NXT UK TakeOver is almost here with a star-studded lineup.

Below are the matches for the first installment of NXT UK TakeOver:

  • NXT UK Women’s Championship – Rhea Ripley (c) vs Toni Storm
  • Singles Match – Travis Banks vs Jordan Devlin
  • No Disqualification Match – Dave Mastiff vs Eddie Dennis
  • NXT UK Tag Team Championship  – Moustache Mountain vs Grizzled Young Veterans
  • WWE United Kingdom Championship – Pete Dunne (c) vs Joe Coffey

WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne is on an absolute tear. Dunne has been WWE UK Champion for over 600 days, yes, 600 days. Can Joe Coffey end one of the greatest title reigns in recent history or will the Bruiserweight continue his dominance and add Coffey to his list of victims?

One of the hottest tag teams of 2018, Moustache Mountain are looking to become the inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions. After coming off classics with the Undisputed Era – Tyler Bate & Trent Seven are looking to capture gold yet again as they take on James Drake & Zack Gibson but will the Grizzled Young Veterans spoil Moustache Mountain’s hopes?

Rhea Ripley has shown absolutely no remorse for the winner of second Mae Young Classic, Toni Storm as she has mocked and shot down the hashtag #StandWithToni. Can the Mae Young Classic winner add the NXT UK Women’s Championship to her resume or will Ripley retain what’s hers?

All this and more will be answered as NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool comes our way from the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, England at 2 PM ET/ 11 AM PT on the WWE Network.
