How Long is Forever? KLR vs. Meiko Satomura
Kay Lee Ray won the NXT UK Women’s Championship on August 31, 2019, over 650 days ago.
Meiko Satomura handed KLR her biggest test when the two last met for the title. Satomura was the surprise entrant in a five-women gauntlet match to decide the number 1 contender for the title. The “Final Boss” won that to earn another crack at KLR and to put to test her claim to be the “Forever Champion.”
The last match they had was fantastic and Triple H has already started licking his lips for this rematch.
What Walter Wants
Walter has held the NXT UK Championship for ages and it’s hard to see who will ever knock him off his perch.
He returns this week and will almost certainly demand his next challenge. There’s a fair few people that will feel they deserve a shot. The three most likely challengers have all previously lost attempts to prise the championship from the Austrian. They are Rampage Brown and Joe Coffey, who battled each other last week, and Ilja Dragunov. Dragunov has been suffering from rage blackouts since he last lost to Walter and will look to defeat him as his chance to overcome his mental demons.

What Else to Expect on NXT UK
Jordan Devlin returned last week and demanded his own parking spot, dressing room, and appearance on Supernova Sessions. We might see him verbally spar with Noam Dar if he’s granted the latter this week.
We can also expect two to three other matches but none of these have been announced.
