Meiko Satomura to make NXT UK debut next week


New WWE signee Meiko Satomura will make her NXT UK debut next week.

During this week's NXT UK episode, WWE announced that Satomura will arrive on NXT UK next Thursday. Further details about what she'll be doing on the episode or who she'll be facing weren't announced.

It was confirmed last week that Satomura has signed with WWE and will be a player/coach in NXT UK. WWE has been building up an NXT UK Women's Championship match between Kay Lee Ray and Satomura, with KLR saying she's beaten everyone put in front of her and wants to face the best in the world. KLR has been NXT UK Women's Champion since August 2019. WWE hasn't announced when she'll be defending her title against Satomura.

Satomura is a co-founder of Japan's Sendai Girls' Pro Wrestling. She wrestled for WWE as part of the 2018 Mae Young Classic and has been a guest coach at the WWE Performance Center in the past.

Satomura also has experience wrestling in the United Kingdom. She's a former PROGRESS Wrestling Women's Champion and a former Fight Club: PRO Champion.

Next Thursday's NXT UK will be headlined by Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster facing The Hunt (Wild Boar & Primate) in a street fight. There will also be a Supernova Sessions segment with Sha Samuels appearing on the talk show as Noam Dar's guest.
