WWE UK tournament to air a week after taking place


While WWE's two United Kingdom Championship tournament shows will be airing on the Network later this month, they won't be shown live.

WWE announced the broadcast plans for the events today, noting that they'll be taped at Royal Albert Hall on June 18-19 and will stream on the WWE Network on Monday, June 25th and Tuesday, June 26th. They'll air at 3 p.m. Eastern time.

The first night will feature the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals of a tournament to decide who will be challenging for Pete Dunne's WWE UK Championship on night two. All but one of the first round matches will take place at Download Festival on June 8-10, with Jack Gallagher vs. Drew Gulak having already been filmed during a set of NXT television tapings last month.
