Tyler Bate match announced for WWE NXT

Bate will face Von Wagner on the episode.

Tyler Bate is set for action on tonight's episode of NXT.

WWE has announced that Bate vs. Von Wagner will take place on NXT tonight. The match comes one week after Bate confronted Bron Breakker to close NXT Heatwave.

Breakker retained his NXT Championship against JD McDonagh in the main event of Heatwave. After the match, Bate came out to the ring with his NXT United Kingdom Championship belt. The show ended with Breakker and Bate holding up their respective title belts.

The champion vs. champion match between Breakker and Bate looks to be set for WWE's Worlds Collide event on Sunday, September 4.

Bate became NXT United Kingdom Champion after Ilja Dragunov had to vacate the title due to injury. Bate won the championship at an NXT UK television taping this July, but his title win has yet to air.

WWE announced last week that it will launch NXT Europe in 2023. Worlds Collide will be the final NXT UK event before NXT Europe launches.

NXT UK "will end in its current form and serve as the foundation for a bigger, better NXT Europe."

Here's the updated lineup for tonight's NXT:

  • Lights Out match: Wendy Choo vs. Tiffany Stratton
  • NXT United Kingdom Tag Team Champions Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen defend against Gallus
  • NXT United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate vs. Von Wagner
  • Apollo Crews appears on The Grayson Waller Effect
