British Strong Style vs. Undisputed Era set for WWE UK tournament

A six-man tag match is set for the first of WWE's two United Kingdom Championship tournament shows at Royal Albert Hall in June.

WWE revealed today that British Strong Style (Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) will be teaming together to face the Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly & Roderick Strong) on night one. Strong turned against Dunne at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, joining Undisputed Era and allowing the group to retain their Tag Team titles.

After TakeOver, Bate & Seven lost a tag title match to Strong & O'Reilly at WrestleMania Axxess and were being attacked by Undisputed Era until Dunne made the save.

The first night in London will also feature a tournament to decide who will be challenging for Dunne's WWE United Kingdom Championship on the second show. In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that it is believed to be an eight-man tournament with WWE's UK-contracted wrestlers. The NXT Women's, North American, and Tag Team titles will be defended on night two as well.

The UK Championship tournament shows will be taking place on June 18th and 19th, which fall on a Monday and Tuesday and come just days after NXT TakeOver: Chicago.
