Report: More WWE NXT UK Talents Heading To The United States

Who is heading to the United States?

Several WWE NXT UK talents were involved on this week's episode of NXT, with the likes of Blair Davenport, Tyler Bate, Joe Coffey, Mark Coffey, and Wolfgang showing up on the Tuesday night show to kick off the build to the September 4 Worlds Collide special. 

They followed other NXT UK talents in A-Kid (now Axiom), WALTER (now Gunther), and Nathan Frazer who had moved from the United Kingdom to the United States already this year.

They won't be the only wrestlers heading across the Atlantic Ocean this year, though, and Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Charlie Dempsey, the son of William Regal, will be heading to the United States. Jinny, Gunther's girlfriend, is either already in the United States or is expected to travel there. She has been pictured alongside Gunther in recent weeks.

Other NXT UK talents, however, have been released after the brand was effectively shut down on Thursday, August 18. The likes of Amir Jordan, Flash Morgan Webster, Trent Seven, Mark Andrews, and Xia Brookside have been let go and they will officially be free agents on September 23. 

NXT UK will be replaced by NXT Europe, which is set to launch in 2023.
