Former NXT and NXT UK Tag Team Champion Trent Seven is reportedly among today’s NXT UK releases.
Amidst reports that NXT UK as we know it will be coming to an end on September 4th, numerous NXT UK wrestlers and talents were released from the company on August 18th. Notable names include former NXT UK Tag Team Champions Flash Morgan Webster, Ashton Smith and Mark Andrews. Andrews and Webster were also semi-finalists in the 2017 and 2018 United Kingdom Championship Tournaments respectively.
Now, another former NXT UK Tag Team Champion is reportedly among those released from the company as PWInsider notes that Mustache Mountain’s Trent Seven has been moved to the alumni section of WWE.com, indicating that he is among the releases. Neither Trent Seven nor WWE have commented on his WWE departure at this time.
Alongside Tyler Bate, Seven became an NXT UK Tag Team Champion in December of 2021 when the team defeated Pretty Deadly. They had previously won the NXT Tag Team Championship by defeating Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly back in June of 2018, though they would lose the title two days later.
While Trent Seven appears to be done with WWE, the other half of Mustache Mountain is the current NXT UK Champion – at least, he was holding the belt on the latest episode of NXT 2.0. The episode of NXT UK television where he wins the belt has yet to air as the tournament to crown a new champion is still in progress.
