WWE's global expansion just took a major step forward.

This marks Tyler Bate's second title win since joining WWE. A restoration of WWE's United Kingdom ambitions has been widely expected since ITV resumed production of their World of Sport series (which concluded taping last month), but as of yet the company have not announced whether their new NXT brand will hit a domestic TV station or be delivered through the Network.

According to WWE.com, the series will feature WWE Superstars based in the United Kingdom and Ireland and involve the United Kingdom Championship (currently held by Pete Dunne), a U.K. Women's Championship and a U.K. Tag Team Championship.


"The UK has an fantastic talent base and incredibly passionate fans that are deserving of their own showcase", Triple H says in a statement. WWE later confirmed separate championships for each of the two new divisions via their Twitter account, to go along with the pre-existing UK Championship. The first television taping for NXT U.K. will be held on June 29, where they will tape eight shows to get the brand off and running. You can find out more information through WWE's website.

The extension of the NXT brand to different parts of the world is a concept that Triple H has discussed in the past, and now the wheels have been set in motion.

"The UK has an wonderful talent base and incredibly passionate fans that are deserving of their own showcase", said Paul "Triple H" Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative.
