Triple threat match to headline next week's NXT UK


A triple threat match will headline next week's NXT UK episode.

WWE has announced that Joe Coffey vs. Rampage Brown vs. Ilja Dragunov will take place on NXT UK next Thursday. It's being billed as a match between three people who are trying to prove that they're the toughest wrestler on the brand.

On NXT UK two weeks ago, Coffey defeated Brown to even their record against each other in NXT UK at 1-1. Coffey and Brown then shook hands and Brown signaled that he wanted a third match against Coffey. But Dragunov then came out to the stage and stared them both down.

This week's NXT UK featured a segment with Coffey, Brown, and Dragunov sitting down and talking ahead of their triple threat match next week. Coffey and Brown wanted to know why Dragunov got involved in their business. Dragunov said Coffey and Brown think NXT UK is their playground, but there are other people there -- especially him.

Coffey, Brown, and Dragunov also discussed having similar upbringings in Glasgow, Leeds, and Russia.

On commentary, it was said that Coffey, Brown, and Dragunov all have title aspirations. All three wrestlers have previously unsuccessfully challenged for WALTER's NXT United Kingdom Championship.

Teoman vs. Oliver Carter is also set for next Thursday's NXT UK.
