After making a shock appearance to confront Bron Brakker at Heatwave, Tyler Bate will be in action on the upcoming edition of NXT 2.0.
The past week has been a whirlwind for all involved in NXT UK. The chaos kicked off on the special Heatwave edition of NXT 2.0 where a number of stars from the UK brand invaded the show, immediately making their presence felt.
Perhaps the most eye-catching of the interlopers was Tyler Bate who made his shock appearance after the main event, confronting NXT Champion Bron Breakker. While the appearance was noteworthy enough by itself, Bate arrived with the United Kingdom Championship, despite the finals of the tournament where he was crowned champion not airing yet.
This added to speculation that the future of NXT UK was far from certain, and these rumours were proven correct on August 18th when it was announced that the brand is set to be scrapped and replaced by NXT Europe. Just as the dust was beginning to settle following that bombshell, a number of NXT UK stars were released from their contracts.
Hot on the heels of his appearance at Heatwave, it has now been announced that Tyler Bate will be in action on the August 23rd edition of NXT 2.0 where he will take on Von Wager.
“NXT UK Champion Tyler Bate made a shocking arrival this past Tuesday when he stood eye-to-eye with NXT Champion Bron Breakker, but if Bate wants to plant his flag on NXT 2.0, he’ll have to go through Von Wagner’s jungle.
Can The Big Strong Boi topple the towering Superstar, or will he quickly realize that he’s living in Wagner’s World?”
NXT UK will say a final goodbye on September 4th with a huge joint show with NXT 2.0 titled Worlds Collide. At time of writing no matches have been announced for the show.
