What To Expect When WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament Airs

The two day Royal Albert Hall event has now concluded and has thrown up some brilliant matches.

Already known to the public was the eight quarter-finalists who had won their first-round matches at Download Festival.

However, over the course of the shows, more matches were released and will be shown on June 25 and June 26 on the WWE Network.



To win the United Kingdom Championship Tournament, one wrestler would have to win three matches in a single night.

Zack Gibson did exactly that.

He beat Jack Gallagher, Flash Morgan Webster and then Travis Banks to secure the honour of facing Pete Dunne on day two.

Travis Banks had to beat Ashton Smith and Joe Coffey before losing to Liverpool’s Number One via submission.

Earlier in the tournament, Coffey beat fellow big man Dave Mastiff and Flash Morgan Webster beat Jordan Devlin.


Outside the tournament, Toni Storm became number one contender for the NXT Women’s Championship by defeating Isla Dawn and Killer Kelly – the match was restarted as a triple threat after Jinny got injured.

British Strong Style’s trio of Pete Dunne, Trent Seven and Tyler Bate were able to beat The Undisputed Era’s Adam Cole, Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly.

At the end of the night, Triple H announced the new NXT UK division, which will include a tag and women’s belt alongside Pete Dunne’s UK Championship.


Day two welcomed the NXT superstars and the show opened with a title change, as Moustache Mountain defeated Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong for the Tag Team Titles.

Charlie Morgan defeated Killer Kelly as well as the return of Noam Dar confirming him as number one contender for the UK Championship – he beat Travis Banks, Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews.

On the title scene, nothing else changed on day two.

Pete Dunne defended his title against Zack Gibson in what I hear is a brilliant match.

Adam Cole retained against Wolfgang and Shayna Baszler only beat Toni Storm via count-out.

In tag team action, fan favorites Ricochet and Aleister Black beat The Velveteen Dream and EC3.
