Here's a place to check results and comment along with NXT UK’s TakeOver: Blackpool live WWE Network special - happening Sat., Jan. 12, 2019 at The Empress Ballroom.
Fresh off the announcement of their own Performance Center, the roster of WWE’s newest brand gets to show off with their first TakeOver! All of the UK’s titles will be on the line, including Pete Dunne trying to extend the longest current reign in the entire company when he faces Joe Coffey, and a rematch of the first NXT UK Women’s title match again pits Mae Young Classic semi-finalists Rhea Ripley and Toni Storm against one other. And, the first ever NXT UK Tag champs will be crowned when Trent Seven & Tyler Bate face Zack Gibson & James Drake.
Plus a pair of grudge matches, and probably a surprise or two.
The show will stream live on WWE Network. The opening bell is scheduled for 2PM Eastern.
We'll update the results as they happen, and feel free to use this space to discuss all the action with the best pro wrestling community on the internet - before, during and after the show.
