WWE will be bringing its brand NXT to the Download festival this weekend, while WWE Live will return to the UK in November. 

NXT UK, the United Kingdom-based brand of the United States-based professional wrestling promotion WWE, is making its debut at Download 2019 this weekend.

A whole host of NXT UK superstars – including Matt Riddle, Shayna Baszler, Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole – will be making an appearance in full-sized ring bouts in the main arena. Plus, for the first time ever all of the matches will be taped and aired as part of the weekly NXT UK show on the WWE Network.

WWE has also announced that its unique brand of action packed entertainment is returning to the UK in November 2019 for WWE Live, a blend of sport and entertainment combining in-ring match action with dramatic entertainment. Bursting with all the drama and energy of a rock concert, in a fun, lively and exciting environment, WWE Live is billed as ‘the ultimate in family entertainment’.

Tickets are available here for the shows, which will be running in Nottingham, Birmingham, Brighton, Leeds, Manchester, London, Aberdeen and Glasgow.
