Roderick Strong to make NXT UK debut next week

Strong vs. Wolfgang is official for next Thursday's NXT UK episode.

A member of the NXT 2.0 roster is set to make their NXT UK debut next week.

During this week's NXT UK episode, it was announced that Roderick Strong will be a special guest on NXT UK next Thursday. He'll be facing Wolfgang on the show.

While Sid Scala was making the announcement, Wolfgang interrupted Scala and said he wants something that will help take him to the next level. Scala said NXT UK management has noticed the momentum Wolfgang has been on, and he announced that Wolfgang will be Strong's opponent next week.

The match was filmed at a set of NXT UK television tapings earlier this month.

Strong is part of Diamond Mine in NXT 2.0. The faction is managed by Malcolm Bivens and also includes The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed) and Ivy Nile.

It's also been announced that -- in an attempt for Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith to get another shot at Tyler Bate & Trent Seven's NXT UK Tag Team titles -- Carter and Smith will be facing Bate and Seven in singles matches. Carter vs. Bate will take place on next Thursday's NXT UK.

Plus, WWE has revealed that Meiko Satomura will defend her NXT UK Women's Championship against Isla Dawn on the NXT UK episode that airs in two weeks (Thursday, March 24).
