    WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament takes place this week, (live on WWE Network) Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m

    20170106_UKC_PrintableBracket_CARD--e8116b6c78c438b3dff9f8e94cdb4725.jpg


    The First Round of the tournament will see eight intriguing matches, including:

    Tyler Bate vs. Tucker
    Jordan Devlin vs. Danny Burch
    Trent Seven vs. H.C. Dyer
    Wolfgang vs. Tyson T-Bone
    Mark Andrews vs. Dan Moloney
    James Drake vs. Joseph Conners
    Pete Dunne vs. Roy Johnson
    Saxon Huxley vs. Sam Gradwell



    So Folks will you be watching a WWE show designed for out time zone and (despite the title) featuring some very local local performers?


    I wonder if they will stay true to the intention to have a weekly show on the network based on this tournament.

    2. Jordan Devlin is from Bray and is trained by Finn Balor and Paul Tracey. Tucker is from Northern Ireland and I know very little about him.

    I will 100% be watching this. Pete Dunne IMO is the favourite here. Looking at Pete & MAndrews in one Semi and Jordon and Trent Seven in the other. Jordan vs Tyler Bate in round 2 has the potential to be match of the tournament.

    The expectations I have for this is sky high. With the small venue it'll be interesting to see what the set up will look like.

    Looking forward to this a lot will be my first time seeing a lot of the guys

    I am intrigued by how they will get everything in. Finalists will need to work three matches the second night.

    Looking forward to this

    If its does get a weekly TV show will they record it similar to NXT and tape a months worth of shows in one night in the same venue ???. Triple H will hardly be in the gorilla position for the weekly show each week

    Will the WWE UK brand have house shows and tour Irish cities such as Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Waterford etc

    I would imagine it will be similar to NXT from a cost point of view.

    Re touring nobody knows. And anybody that says different is full of ****. I would think its unlikely for at least a year and that of course is dependant on the tournament leading to a full time territory

    Just looking on Wikipedia.

    Tyler Bate was born in 1997.

    No no don't feel completely ancient at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 264 ✭✭Manning3000


    That championship belt is better looking than anything on the main roster,

    Really looking forward to watch reasonably times live wrestling,

    But he missed out on both the Hulkamania and Attitude Era! He grew up with the "remember how great wrestling used to be?" era. Feel better? :)

    Is Tyson T-Bone a traveller?

    They're billing him as king of the travellers.

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,650 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Just watched the preview on the live channel on the network. I'm excited I have to say.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88

  • Registered Users Posts: 838 ✭✭✭A Rogue Hobo


    Loving the presentation style so far, great building too. The absolute stench of D-lo Brown off of H.C Dyer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,650 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Michael cole calling actual wrestling moves. Madness. Also that closeline was JBL approved.
