Semifinals set for NXT UK Heritage Cup tournament

The semifinals of NXT UK's Heritage Cup tournament are now set.

Trent Seven defeated Kenny Williams on this week's episode of NXT UK to advance in the Heritage Cup tournament. Seven will face Dave Mastiff in the semifinals. Mastiff defeated Joseph Conners in the first round last week.

Noam Dar vs. A-Kid is the other semifinal match in the tournament. Dar advanced by defeating Alexander Wolfe in the first round, while A-Kid defeated Flash Morgan Webster.

WWE hasn't announced when the semifinal matches will be airing.

The Heritage Cup is a British Rounds tournament with the following rules for matches:

  • There will be six rounds for Heritage Cup matches. Each round will be three minutes.
  • There will be 20-second breaks between each round.
  • All matches are two-out-of-three falls.
  • Falls can be won by pinfall, submission, or countout.
  • Once a fall occurs, the round ends.
  • Once someone has won two falls, they are declared the winner and they advance in the tournament.
  • If there's a disqualification or knockout, the match ends without the need for two falls.
  • If a match goes the full six rounds, whoever is ahead on falls wins.

The Heritage Cup will be defended as a championship under the same rules following the tournament.
