NXT UK canceled its next two sets of television tapings and this has led to "a lot of uneasiness" felt amongst the crew. 

BT Sport Studios is said to have been unavailable for the tapings due to football/soccer coverage. Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that talent on the brand are concerned that the shows weren't moved to a different venue. 

“There is a lot of uneasiness within the NXT U.K. crew. The next two sets of television tapings were canceled on 8/9," Meltzer wrote. "The reason given was that BT Sports Studios, where they tape, had to be used for football/soccer coverage. But as you can imagine with the talent how the reaction is, given you could tape somewhere else and shutting down tapings is never a good sign. Nobody really has been told anything”

Several NXT UK wrestlers are scheduled to travel to Florida to take part in NXT programming in the near future. Joe & Mark Coffey as well as Charlie Dempsey (son of William Regal) are expected to make the trip.
