NXT UK’s first ever Takeover event is currently in full swing. During the event WoS/World of Sport Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray was shown on camera. The commentary team confirmed that the Scottish star would be coming to NXT UK.

We reported earlier this week that ICW star and WoS Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray was on WWE’s radar. The WON confirmed that Ray had been offered a contract with WWE/NXT but did not confirm if the deal was likely to go ahead at the time. KLR also appeared in the original Mae Young Classic.
It now appears as though the deal is done and that she will be heading to NXT UK. Where this leaves WoS will be interesting, the brand did struggle with their initial run on ITV and the ongoing tour has reportedly not been selling well. We cannot confirm at this time if there will be a second series of the television show.
When Trent Seven, Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne appeared on television this week to announce the new NXT UK Performance Center they did so on ITV…the home of WoS.
