NXT TakeOver UK to air live on WWE Network

BANG Showbiz

WWE NXT will air a live special from London, UK, in December.

WWE has announced its upcoming show live from the Wembley Arena will air exclusively on the WWE Network on December 16.

The special NXT TakeOver event will feature stars including WWE NXT Champion Finn Balor, Women's Champion Bayley, Tyler Breeze, Emma and Dana Brooke.

As well as the live broadcast from London, the NXT stars will also tour Newcastle, Sheffield, Cardiff and Glasgow in the brand's first ever international tour.

WWE executive Triple H announced the exciting seven-night tour last week, saying: "I think everybody continues to be blown away by the success of it. Everyone expects it to do well now and when it does 13,000 seats it's like, 'Holy cow'.

"Sometimes I feel like I'm just holding onto the tail of this thing a little bit, but that's great. What it does for me that's awesome is every time we jump a new hurdle, whether it's ticket sales or merchandise sales or interest from an outside group or whatever it is, it's just another hurdle we jump internally in the company to say this is its own brand. Now everybody within the company is kind of engaged in NXT. There is just excitement all around."

NXT, which runs in addition to WWE's Raw and SmackDown tours, recently sold out the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, with its latest TakeOver event.
