Following a heated confrontation with fellow NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar on NXT, Jordan Devlin is primed to defend his title against Trent Seven in what is certain to be a thrilling championship fight on NXT UK.
During a face-to-face confab on NXT UK several weeks ago, Seven vowed to cut weight, get down to 205 pounds and challenge The Irish Ace for his title. Devlin informed his potential opponent that if Seven could get to the 205-pound plateau, he would indeed give him a championship match.
His offer didn’t come without a healthy helping of condescension, however, as Devlin wished him luck and mockingly tapped him on the stomach, only to receive a right hand to the jaw.
After Seven indeed made weight during WWE’s The Bump, what will happen when the title is on the line this Thursday?
Speaking of long-reigning titleholders, NXT UK Champion WALTER is scheduled to address the WWE Universe. And after holding the championship since April of 2019, what will WALTER have to say regarding any potential challengers?
Additionally, Meiko Satomura looks to bounce back against Dani Luna after The Best in the World came up just short against NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray in an incredible title bout. Plus, Nathan Frazier will take on Ashton Smith in what should be a spirited singles match.
