I'm definitely interested...but also torn, because I feel like the fun of the UK guys is watching them interact with the established NXT guys, like Dunne and Cole have been. Hopefully they maintain some sort of crossover between the two.

I wonder if they're going to transfer some of the lower end talent from the US NXT to the UK just a beef up their roster a little

Not even British they're going to need some guys people already know on the brand
Though I can see them doing a NXT takeover British Invasion pay-per-view to help promote it the main event and the other matches determine the champions

It literally says the United Kingdom and IRELAND in the article. So is it not obvious that they aren't using strictly British wrestlers? You never quite read anything properly do you.

 

Also there is an American, and Aussie and a New Zealander in the new tournament ...

Will this just be airing as if it were live or will it be added to on demand stuff?

I'm liking WWE's global approach. Things could get really interesting if they ever try to establish a branch in Japan.

Didn't expect them to immediately introduce two more titles for this. But nice.

I could see them trying China instead of Japan.  It's an untapped market and they may want to capitalize on that instead of trying to establish a Japanese NXT.

Tbh, they should probably do Canada next. China is an untapped market, but I don't know that the Chinese people actually care about watching pro wrestling.

I really hope they don't do anything else in Saudi Arabia. There are still too many questions and concerns from the last one. Hope they learned their lesson and decide to move on.
