WWE: Eight confirmed for United Kingdom tournament

Company regulars Jack Gallagher and Joseph Conners will be joined by Zack Gibson, Joe Coffey, Dave Mastiff, El Ligero, Amir Jordan, and Kenny Williams in making up half of the 16-strong contingent competing at June's Download Festival for a chance to appear in London's most revered indoor venue.

The NXT superstars will return to action at the annual WWE festival in Donington Park (Derby, UK).

The show takes place on the 18th and 19th of June and if rumors are to be believed then Travis Banks, Chris Brookes, Flash Morgan Webster, Eddie Dennis and James Drake could be some of the names who also play their part in the tournament. Various online commentators - including Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter - have speculated that WWE's renewed interest in its United Kingdom division (and the signing of various new wrestlers) is an attempt to combat the return of World of Sport later this year.

Pete Dunne is the WWE United Kingdom Champion but WWE is running a WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament to find him a #1 contender.
