The first match has been made official by WWE for the next WWE NXT UK special.
On Wednesday, WWE confirmed that WWE NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm will make her next title defense against Kay Lee Ray at the upcoming NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff event.
As of this writing, this is the only match to be announced thus far for this event. The rest of the card will be announced over the next few weeks leading up to the show, which has been sold out.
NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff will take place on Saturday, August 31 and air live on the WWE Network at 3pm ET from Cardiff, Wales. The first NXT UK Takeover event took place back on January 12 from Blackpool, England.
It’s an interesting date as fans picked up on the fact that it will take place on the same day as the second AEW (All Elite Wrestling) pay-per-view event. AEW holds All Out at the Sears Centre in Chicago, IL.
This NXT UK pay-per-view event will air just a few hours before All Out so for fans wondering, WWE’s show should be over by the time that AEW starts to broadcast.
