There’s also been no training allowed at the UK Performance Center in addition to several members of the NXT UK roster having had accusations made against them. WWE has released Jack Gallagher, Travis Banks, and Ligero due to accusations.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter back in April that nobody knew about the status of the NXT UK. However, last month, it was reported that there was a mandatory conference call hosted by Triple H.
Although not a ton of details was reported about, we do know that despite speculating of WWE closing the brand down due to COVID-19, the company plans to move forward with it despite all of the challenges in the way.
Triple H commented on the brand during WWE’s annual shareholder meeting that took place earlier this month.
“The London Performance Center has been inactive since March, thereabouts, due to the COVID-19 issues. We work with local and government officials they’re all the time and are monitoring constantly, and are looking forward to when talent can get back to training. I know they’re all anxious to do it, and hopefully that’ll be in the near future.
We’re also working with our partners there on solutions and ways that we can get back to creating fresh in-ring content as soon as possible for the NXT UK brand. Again, all of that relies on us being able to do that safely — as the safety and health of our talent come first and foremost. But as soon as that is something that we can safely do, we will be back up and running.”
