A newly released NXT UK star has revealed how long fans will have to wait before they can see them back in action.
On August 18, WWE announced the end of NXT UK, to be replaced by NXT Europe in 2023. Alongside this announcement, numerous NXT UK stars were released from their contracts, including former champions like Mark Andrews, Trent Seven and Flash Morgan Webster.

The major changes done to the UK brand as well as the releases, come on the heels of NXT UK stars, Tyler Bate, Gallus and Blair Davenport making appearances at NXT Heatwave, seemingly setting up matches for the upcoming Worlds Collide event.
Samuels joined WWE in early 2021, originally being given the name Ed Harvey, but he quickly renounced it after a loss against Joe Coffey. Samuels would form a partnership with Noam Dar, helping him win the NXT UK Heritage Cup back in October. Samuels’ final storyline saw him lose all of his money betting on Dar’s title retention over Mark Coffey.
