Cesaro to appear at NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff


WWE is teasing that Cesaro will be playing a part in NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff this Saturday.

In a video that WWE posted today, Cesaro said he'll be paying a visit to Cardiff, Wales for Saturday's event. "I've heard a lot of things about NXT UK, so I'm going to go to NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff to find out firsthand what it's all about," Cesaro said.

Cesaro ended the interview by saying he may take more of a "hands-on" approach at TakeOver.

Further details on Cesaro's role at TakeOver have yet to be revealed.

A member of the main roster was in action at UK TakeOver: Blackpool back in January. After an angle where Jordan Devlin injured Travis Banks before their match, Finn Balor took Banks' place and defeated Devlin.

Motorpoint Arena Cardiff is hosting Saturday's UK TakeOver special. The main card will begin at 2 p.m. Eastern time.

Here's the announced lineup for the show: 

  • WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER defending against Tyler Bate
  • NXT UK Women's Champion Toni Storm defending against Kay Lee Ray
  • NXT UK Tag Team Champions The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) defending against Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) and Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster in a triple threat match
  • Travis Banks vs. Noam Dar
  • Dave Mastiff vs. Joe Coffey in a last man standing match
