NXT UK was announced earlier this year, following two successful United Kingdom Tournaments but is still yet to be broadcast on the WWE Network. The show has already been filmed but now WWE has pitched the product to a number of broadcasters in the UK in the hopes that it can be screened on a weekly basis.

The likes of ITV, Channel 4 and BT Sport have been approached with the hopes of them taking the show onboard and it’s now being reported by WrestleTalk that a deal is expected to be announced by tomorrow.

WWE has pitched the idea of the show being local talents made in the UK and it could be seen as World of Sport’s main rival since the show has been doing quite well on a Saturday on ITV over the past few months.

Raw and SmackDown are currently signed to deals with Sky Sports in the United Kingdom and it appears that WWE is looking to strike the same kind of deal with NXT UK to stream the show on a weekly basis.

SmackDown is set to embark on a new deal with Fox in the coming months, so there is expected to be a number of changes in WWE in the near future. NXT UK has been in the pipeline ever since the first ever United Kingdom Championship took place at the beginning of 2017 which means that this is a deal that has been a long time coming.

The likes of Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate, Trent Seven, and Zack Gibson are some of the main stars of the show and will definitely bring in the viewers and the ratings for any of the broadcasters that WWE has approached.
