WWE announced today that the company will be expanding NXT UK with the creation of NXT Europe. NXT UK will go on hiatus for a few months before officially launching NXT Europe in 2023. NXT UK’s final event will be Worlds Collide which is set to take place on September 4th. Worlds Collide will feature NXT and NXT UK Superstars face each in a series of matches.
“Following the success of our live events and talent identification efforts throughout all of Europe, we believe this is the perfect time to expand NXT beyond the UK,” said Shawn Michaels, WWE Vice President of Talent Development Creative.
Launched in 2016, NXT UK has received critical acclaim and developed WWE main roster talent such as Rhea Ripley, Doudrop, Gunther and Butch. NXT Europe will reimagine the brand and its talent pipeline with a Pan European focus.
