This week’s episode of NXT featured a heavy UK presence, the UK Championship match between Tyler Bate & Jack Gallagher arguably stole the show and Scottish based promotion ICW heavily influenced the show.

Every bout from the show featured ICW alumni: Alesiter Black, Tyler Bate, Drew McIntyre and Nikki Cross have all performed for the company in prominent roles and it speaks volumes for the importance of the UK scene on worldwide wrestling right now.

Pete Dunne (who was seen at ringside) is challenging for the ICW World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday against current champion Joe Coffey. Coffey took the belt from WWE UK star Trent Seven.
