The following matches are advertised for the NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool event that will be held today in Blackpool, England at the Empress Ballroom.
-Pete Dunne vs. Joe Coffey for the WWE UK Championship.
-Rhea Ripley vs. Toni Storm for the NXT UK Women’s Championship
-Trent Seven and Tyler Bate vs. James Drake and Zack Gibson to become the first NXT UK Tag Champions.
-Dave Mastiff vs. Eddie Dennis in a No DQ match.
-Jordan Devlin vs. Travis Banks.
Powell’s POV: Join me for live coverage of Takeover beginning with the pre-show at 12:30 p.m. CT/1:30 p.m. ET. The actual event will begin at 1CT/2ET, and is blocked for 2.5 hours (which is just right for football fans given that the first playoff game of the day will begin at that time). Haydn Gleed and Darren Gutteridge will be by on Sunday with their members’ exclusive audio review of the event. The members are currently listening to their weekly audio review of the NXT UK television shows, the NXT UK roster evaluation, and the NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool preview.
