This week’s episode of WWE NXT UK will crown the official number one contender to NXT UK Champion, Ilja Dragunov. Dragunov has been riding high as NXT UK’s “Czar” since overcoming former champion, WALTER, at NXT TakeOver 36 and fresh competition is duly needed. Find out who it might be in this preview.

NXT UK Card (9/23/21) – Number 1 Contender Triple Threat

  • Heritage Cup No.1 Contender Tournament Semifinal: Wolfgang vs Teoman
  • NXT UK Championship No.1 Contender Triple Threat: A-Kid vs Rampage Brown vs Nathan Frazer

Heritage Cup No.1 Contender Tournament Semifinal: WolfGang vs Teoman

The Heritage Cup Tournament is finally reaching its conclusion. On last week’s episode of NXT UK, it was Noam Dar who overcame Kenny Williams to be the first name in the final and he must now be viewed as the favorite to succeed Tyler Bate as the holder of NXT UK’s most prestigious cup. This week, Scottish born Wolfgang takes on Germany’s own Teoman to become the second man in the final. With both stars shining in this tournament so far, the result is difficult to predict. Whoever makes it through to the final can be expected to give Noam Dar a run for his money.

NXT UK Championship No.1 Contender Match: A-Kid vs Rampage Brown vs Nathan Frazer

In inaugural Heritage Cup Winner A-Kid, renowned UK veteran and star Rampage Brown and Seth Rollins-trained Nathan Frazer, NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov has his work cut out for him. These three men collide tonight in an attempt to make their case for the NXT UK Championship – they each have a shot to show the WWE Universe that they are Championship material and that despite overcoming the most dominant champion in recent WWE history, Dragunov is not unbeatable. It is often said that being the man to take out Jesse James does not make you Jesse James. At the culmination of this triple threat, Dragunov will be meeting his challenger face to face, to prove that theory wrong. One thing is certain: at the end of tonight’s show, NXT UK will have a new number 1 contender.
