Preview: NXT UK (12/23/21) – Holiday Special Highlights Top Moments Of 2021

WALTER Now Gunther

NXT UK will celebrate its biggest moments and best matches from 2021 with a Holiday Special. NXT UK’s Holiday Special will air at 3pm ET/ 8PM GMT.

Producers putting together the hour-long show will have a tough task as NXT UK has featured some gripping storylines and sensational matches.


Highlights will surely include Ilja Dragunov’s redemption story that led to him defeating WALTER for the NXT UK Championship he had held for 870 days.

Pretty Deadly should feature as the breakout stars after they won the NXT UK Tag Team Championship from Gallus and defended them against every team on the roster whilst also entertaining with skits and guest commentary. But Pretty Deadly’s biggest moment will still go down as when they lost the titles to Moustache Mountain.

Anything NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura has done in 2021 could feature but her two bouts with Kay Lee Ray should be included. The Heritage Cup Championship has provided matches of a high quality that will be almost impossible to select a key highlight from.
