WWE has announced an update to next week's NXT UK tag team number one contender's match.

Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) have been added to next Thursday's Tag Team title number one contender's match on NXT UK, making it a fatal four-way. Bate & Seven, Symbiosis (Primate & T-Bone), Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith, and Dave Mastiff & Jack Starz will face off to determine the next challengers for Pretty Deadly's NXT UK Tag Team titles.

The match was originally announced as a triple threat, but Moustache Mountain were added after Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley) helped cost Bate the NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship. Bate lost the Heritage Cup title to Noam Dar last week when Seven accidentally threw in the towel as he was trying to get it back from Howley.

Seven apologized to Bate on this week's NXT UK and informed him that general manager Johnny Saint is letting them take part in next week's number one contender's match.

Moustache Mountain have never held the NXT UK Tag Team titles.

Pretty Deadly won the NXT UK Tag Team titles from Gallus' Mark Coffey & Wolfgang this February. They retained against Moustache Mountain in August after a distraction where Howley threw in the towel and tried to make the referee think Seven did it. Howley hit Bate with a title belt as Seven was talking to the ref.
