During this week’s episode of NXT UK, NXT Superstar and current NXT UK producer Pete Dunne drew the matches for NXT UK’s first-ever Heritage Cup Tournament.

The other matches for the first round are as follows:

  • A-Kid vs. Flash Morgan Webster
  • Dave Mastiff vs. Joseph Connors
  • Trent Seven vs. Wildcard Entrant

The Wildcard Entrant, who will the eighth and final participant in this tournament has yet to be determined. A Triple Threat, with as of yet unnamed participant, will be held next week to decide who will be the Wildcard Entrant.

The show also saw the return of NXT UK Champion WALTER to the NXT UK ring. WALTER beat Saxon Huxley in what was essentially his first match since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main event was an NXT UK Women’s Championship match where the current champion Kay Lee Ray was successful in retaining over Piper Niven. This means that Ray has now held the title for 390 days.

After the match, Jinny came out and there was a staredown with Ray to close the show.
