There has been talk in WWE about an announcement this weekend at the Liverpool NXT UK TV tapings.
Dave Meltzer has been reporting that there are plans to open a new Performance Center in the UK as WWE continues with plans to expand around the world. This could also coincide with news about a TV deal in the region. The idea has always been to have a TV show for the UK and the rest of the world would get to watch it on the WWE Network.
It’s not clear if the things mentioned above will be announced this weekend but it does look like there are plans for an NXT UK Takeover show.
Ticket site eventim.co.uk listed NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool on their website earlier today. The listing appears to have been added prematurely because it has been removed within the last hour. The show was listed for January 19, less than a week before Royal Rumble weekend.
The NXT UK Takeover show will be a trial run to see how successful they are. That show will determine how many Takeover specials they do in the UK.
