WWE announced that the UK Championship Tournament will air on WWE Network on Monday, June 25 and Tuesday, June 26 with a 2 p.m. CT/3 p.m. ET start time both days. The event will be taped on June 18-19 in London, England at Royal Albert Hall. Read more at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: It’s too bad the shows won’t stream live on the network, but it would have been asking a lot from fans to watch the NXT Takeover special and Money in the Bank on Saturday and Sunday and then turn around and watch two days of the cruiserweight tournament along with Raw and Smackdown the two following days. Dot Net Members have access to the first part of a two-part preview of the event hosted by longtime UK independent scene followers Haydn Gleed and Darren Gutteridge. The second part will be released on Wednesday. For membership information, visit PWMembership.net.
