Contender's tournament match set for next week's NXT UK


The first round of NXT UK's Heritage Cup number one contender's tournament will continue next week.

WWE has announced that Nathan Frazer and Teoman will face off in the first round of the Heritage Cup contender's tournament on NXT UK next Thursday. The winner will face either Wolfgang or Sam Gradwell in the semifinals.

Frazer (Ben Carter) signed with WWE last year and made his NXT UK debut this January. Teoman (formerly known as Lucky Kid) debuted for NXT UK in March. In a video package that aired on today's NXT UK episode, Frazer promised that he'll be the first person to defeat Teoman in NXT UK.

Noam Dar and Kenny Williams have already advanced in the contender's tournament and will be facing each other in the semifinals. Williams defeated Oliver Carter on today's NXT UK. Two weeks ago, the tournament kicked off with Dar defeating Mark Andrews.

The winner of the tournament will challenge Tyler Bate for the Heritage Cup Championship. Bate won the title from A-Kid this May.

Heritage Cup matches have a British Rounds format with a maximum of six rounds. Matches are won when a wrestler has scored two falls. They can also end via knockout or disqualification without the need for two falls. If a match goes the full six rounds, whoever is ahead on falls wins.

Blair Davenport vs. Nina Samuels has also been announced for next Thursday's NXT UK episode. It will be the third match that Davenport (Bea Priestley) has had in NXT UK.
