Contender's tournament semifinals to begin on NXT UK next week


The semifinals of NXT UK's Heritage Cup contender's tournament will begin next week.

The semifinals of the tournament will kick off with Noam Dar facing Kenny Williams on NXT UK next Thursday. The winner will advance to face either Wolfgang or Teoman in the finals.

Dar defeated Mark Andrews in the first round of the tournament, while Williams defeated Oliver Carter.

The winner of the tournament will get a shot at Tyler Bate's Heritage Cup Championship. This May, Bate defeated A-Kid to win the Heritage Cup trophy. Bate is the second-ever Heritage Cup Champion.

Heritage Cup matches have a British Rounds format.

A Tag Team title match will also take place on next Thursday's episode of NXT UK. Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley) will put their titles on the line against Gallus' Joe Coffey & Mark Coffey.

Pretty Deadly won the NXT UK Tag Team titles from Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) this February. They've since made title defenses against Amir Jordan & Williams, Nathan Frazer & Jack Starz, Subculture (Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster), and Moustache Mountain (Bate & Trent Seven).
