A Heritage Cup match between champion Tyler Bate and Noam Dar will headline this week’s NXT UK. Could we see the Cup change hands, and what else can we expect to see? Enjoy our NXT UK preview to find out.

The show will air on Peacock and the WWE Network at 3PM ET/ 8PM GMT. Fans in the UK can catch the show a day later on BT Sports.

Announced Card (10/28/21)

    • Amale vs. An Unnamed Opponent
    • Rohan Raja vs. Mark Coffey 
    • NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship: Tyler Bate vs. Noam Dar 

The French Hope Returns 

Amale has had a little break from NXT UK since her loss to Emilia McKenzie. Amale claims that outcome was a fluke and that she’s ready to carry the hope of all of France on her shoulders. 

We know she will return to the ring but her opponent is unnamed. A few unsigned women competed in dark matches and made debuts at the recent NXT UK tapings. Amale may take on one of those if the powers that be are looking to build her up strong.   

Rohan Raja Looks To Defend Family Pride

Teoman is still licking his wounds after being eliminated from the Heritage Cup No.1 Contender tournament at the hands of Wolfgang. Mark and Joe Coffey got involved in that match, leaving Teoman and Rohan Raja outnumbered. Teoman has promised change is coming. 

Last week, a brawl broke out between Teoman and Raja and the whole of Gallus whilst Charlie Dempsey was giving an interview. As a result Raja will face Mark Coffey this week.  

 Heritage Rules Match

The last time Tyler Bate and Noam Dar squared off in a Heritage Rules match it was WrestleMania week as part of NXT UK Prelude. Bate won that match to earn a shot at the Heritage Cup champion A-Kid. He won that and has been enjoying an impressive championship reign since. 

Dar, on the other hand, had to go through a gruelling Heritage Cup No.1 Contender tournament to finally get a shot at the championship. Some could argue Dar has been too preoccupied with his Supernova Sessions chat show and creating casual beef with his guests to focus on any championship. It seems crazy that he has never held a title despite being in the WWE system since 2016. But Dar believes it is Bate who is preoccupied. Dar claimed that Bate is overlooking him and wasting his time concentrating on remaining in a tag team with Trent Seven.

Dar is an expert at making empty claims. If there’s any truth to his theory we could see Bate lose the Cup and Dar finally win gold.  Furthermore, Bate dropping the Cup could be the first step in the implosion of Moustache Mountain. What a journey that would be.
