The NXT UK Women’s Championship will take centre stage on NXT UK this week as Isla Dawn challenges the Japanese legend. But will it change hands? Read our NXT UK preview for the full story.
NXT UK airs of Peacock and the WWE Network at 4pm ET/ 8pm GMT.
Announced Card (3/24/22) – Dawn Challenges
- NXT UK Women’s Championship: Meiko Satomura vs. Isla Dawn
- A-Kid & Saxon Huxley vs. Die Familie
- Tyson T-Bone vs. Wild Boar
- Jordan Devlin vs. Danny Jones
Something Wicked This Way Comes For Satomura
NXT UK has slowly told the story of Isla Dawn’s quest for the NXT UK Women’s Championship very well. 13 months ago, Dawn lost in five minutes and twenty-six seconds to the debuting Meiko Satomura. Since then Satomura has become NXT UK Women’s Champion and dominated the division.
Dawn has fully embraced her Wiccan heritage. She’s developed a ritual of stealing trinkets from her upcoming opponents and using them to cast spells to bring her luck in the matches. All this kleptomania has been centered around reaping one ultimate prize. The NXT UK Women’s Championship. It is an original strategy to try to win a championship and has made Dawn’s supernatural gimmick believable.
Dawn’s dramatic promo and beatdown of Satomura took her character to a different level. She now stands as a considerable threat to the legendary Japanese champion.
Can A-Kid Count On Saxon To Defeat Die Familie
Charlie Dempsey beat A-Kid a fortnight ago thanks to interference by Rohan Raja. Having already formed a bond with the untamed Saxon Huxley, A-Kid has now enlisted his help to take down Die Familie.
A-Kid and Huxley will face Dempsey and Raja but Teoman is sure to be nearby. So they may find themselves outnumbered.

A Strong Challenger for Ilja Dragunov
Roderick Strong made a special appearance on NXT UK last week and laid down a challenge to NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov. Dragunov will respond this week. This will almost certainly set up a title showdown during the WrestleMania Week NXT UK broadcast.

Eddie Dennis has refused to face Wild Boar, so the returning Boar will take on Tyson T-Bone instead.
