As part of an NXT UK invasion, NXT UK wrestlers Blair Davenport, Tyler Bate, and Gallus all appeared on NXT 2.0 Heatwave on Tuesday (August 16).

WWE announced NXT Europe today (August 18) and said it is reimagining the NXT UK brand and its talent pipeline with a "Pan European focus." The launch is scheduled for next year.

Shawn Michaels, WWE Vice President of Talent Development Creative, said in a statement: "Following the success of our live events and talent identification efforts throughout Europe, we believe this is the perfect time to extend NXT beyond the United Kingdom."

WWE will host its first UK stadium show in 30 years next month, with Clash at the Castle coming from the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on September 3.
