Also at NXT UK: Prelude, Noam Dar will meet Tyler Bate in singles competition in a #1 Contender’s match. The winner will get to challenge for the Heritage Cup Championship which is currently in A-Kid’s possession.

Next week’s NXT UK episode starts at 4 PM EST/8 PM GMT and will feature a No-DQ match between Sam Gradwell and Ilja Dragunov.

In the main event of the 3/18 NXT UK, Jordan Devlin defeated Trent Seven to retain the Cruiserweight Championship. Devlin appeared on last night’s edition of NXT and confronted fellow Cruiserweight Champion, Santos Escobar.

If WALTER vs. Tommaso Ciampa is indeed happening on Stand & Deliver, it seems pretty obvious to me that WALTER isn’t losing his title to Brown… unless the UK Title isn’t in play at all for the Ciampa match.
