Heritage Cup title match set for next week's NXT UK


Noam Dar is getting his shot at NXT UK's Heritage Cup Championship next week.

WWE has announced that Heritage Cup Champion Tyler Bate will defend his title against Dar on next Thursday's episode of NXT UK. Dar won a Heritage Cup Championship number one contender's tournament earlier this month to get the title shot.

Dar defeated Wolfgang in the finals of the number one contender's tournament. In the first two rounds, he defeated Mark Andrews and Kenny Williams.

Ahead of their title match, Bate appeared on Dar's Supernova Sessions talk show on today's NXT UK episode. The segment ended with Dar punching Bate, then Dar's tag team partner Sha Samuels getting Dar out of the ring before a brawl could break out. Bate was also held back by his tag team partner Trent Seven.

Bate won the Heritage Cup title from inaugural champion A-Kid this May. He's made two title defenses since becoming champion, defeating Jack Starz and Mark Coffey.

Next week's NXT UK will also feature Mark Coffey vs. Rohan Raja, along with Amale being in action.
