Finals set for NXT UK Heritage Cup tournament


It will be A-Kid vs. Trent Seven in the finals of NXT UK's Heritage Cup tournament.

In the main event of this week's NXT UK, Seven defeated Dave Mastiff to advance to the finals of the Heritage Cup tournament. Seven won the match two falls to one.

The Heritage Cup finals between A-Kid and Seven will air on the Thursday, November 26 episode of NXT UK.

A-Kid advanced to the finals by defeating Noam Dar on NXT UK last week. In the first round of the tournament, A-Kid defeated Flash Morgan Webster.

Seven's first round win was against Kenny Williams.

After defeating Mastiff on today's show, Seven pointed to the Heritage Cup trophy and said his name will be the first to be engraved on it. A-Kid then came out and went face-to-face with Seven. They shook hands and said may the best man win.

The winner of A-Kid vs. Seven will defend the Heritage Cup as a championship following the tournament. Here are the rules for Heritage Cup matches:
