WWE announces NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff for August


WWE has announced the date and host city for NXT UK's second TakeOver special.

It was revealed on tonight's NXT TakeOver XXV broadcast that NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff will be held in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, August 31. The show will begin at 3 p.m. Eastern time and air live on the WWE Network.

NXT UK's first TakeOver took place in Blackpool, England this January. WALTER made his debut at the end of the show, Toni Storm won the NXT UK Women's Championship, and The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) became the first NXT UK Tag Team Champions.

WALTER went on to defeat Pete Dunne for the WWE United Kingdom Championship at NXT TakeOver: New York during WrestleMania week. With the help of Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner, WALTER defeated Dunne in a rematch on the May 22 episode of NXT UK.

NJPW Royal Quest is also taking place in London, England on August 31, and Hoffman Estates, Illinois is hosting AEW All Out later that night.
