UK Championship Special premieres Thursday, May 18 on WWE Network

A big week of WWE programming just got a little bigger.

In addition to Backlash and TakeOver: Chicago next Saturday and Sunday - and ‘go home’ episodes of SmackDown and NXT leading into them - we’ll also get our first look at the shows taped in Norwich, England last weekend featuring the wrestlers from January’s United Kingdom Championship Tournament and the crusierweights.

The “Network Exclusive” UK Championship Special just popped up on the schedule for next Thursday (May 18) night...

WWE Network

The Superstars of the WWE UK Championship Tournament and 205 Live descend upon Norwich, England for an unforgettable special event!

There’s no mention if the 90 minute special, which will be called by Jim Ross and Nigel McGuinness, will feature action from both days of filming (May 6 - 7) edited down to one show, or if this is the first of two episodes.

But hey - at least we’ll see Pete Dunne earn the UK title shot he’s getting against Tyler Bate on Saturday in Chicago!

Excited for more wrestling next week?
