The tour marks the first time that WWE have visited the UK since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020.
Becky Lynch recently returned to WWE following a lengthy absence due to the birth of her first child Roux. Lynch made her surprise WWE comeback at SummerSlam where she defeated Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
On the following episode of SmackDown, Lynch addressed her defeat of Belair saying that she had nothing to apologise for. While The Man dodged repeated requests by Belair for a rematch, the EST of WWE earned one later in the show by defeating Carmella, Liv Morgan and Zelina Vega in a Fatal-4-Way Match.
Meanwhile, speaking in a recent interview, Finn Balor revealed that fans nearly saw him return to the UK even sooner. In conversation with BT Sport, Balor said that he pitched to join NXT UK before returning to SmackDown in July.
