Tag team match added to NXT UK: Prelude


A new match has been added to the lineup for NXT UK: Prelude.

WWE has announced that NXT UK Women's Champion Kay Lee Ray will team with Isla Dawn against Meiko Satomura & Emilia McKenzie at NXT UK: Prelude next Thursday (April 8). Emilia McKenzie is Millie McKenzie's new in-ring name in WWE.

During a segment on this week's NXT UK episode, KLR addressed defeating Satomura last month to retain the NXT UK Women's Championship. McKenzie then made her debut as a member of the NXT UK roster by interrupting KLR. McKenzie said she's here because she wants to defeat the best. McKenzie warned KLR that their paths will cross soon.

KLR told McKenzie that she doesn't see why their paths can't cross right now. McKenzie went to go face-to-face with KLR but was attacked by Dawn. After Satomura ran out to make the save, she and McKenzie fought off KLR and Dawn.

NXT UK authority figure Sid Scala then informed KLR & Dawn backstage that they'll be facing Satomura & McKenzie in tag team action next week.

It was reported this February that McKenzie had signed with WWE and would be joining NXT UK. She previously wrestled for NXT UK three times in 2018, including having two televised matches.

NXT UK: Prelude will stream on Peacock in the United States and on the WWE Network everywhere else at 3 p.m. EST/ 8 p.m. BST next Thursday. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • NXT United Kingdom Champion WALTER defends against Rampage Brown
