WWE announced the impending creation of NXT Europe in 2023 with NXT UK "ending in its current form and serve as the foundation for a bigger, better NXT Europe." Two TV tapings were canceled recently and the group will go on hiatus after next month's World Collide special.

Several NXT UK stars like Tyler Bate, Blair Davenport and Gallus appeared on NXT Tuesday night to set up the Worlds Collide event which was yet to be announced at that point.

It's unknown at this point whether WWE will look to re-sign any of the talent listed above once NXT Europe launches and if they revive a TV show when they do.
