American stars from NXT 2.0 will make their in-ring debuts on this week’s NXT UK. Enjoy our NXT UK preview ahead of the show airing on Peacock and the WWE Network at 3pm ET/8PM GMT.

NXT UK Announced Card (4/28/22)

  • NXT UK Championship Contract Signing: Ilja Dragunov and Jordan Devlin 
  • Xia Brookside vs. Unnamed Opponent
  • NXT 2.0 Star in Action

NXT 2.0 Stars To Appear 

Four NXT 2.0 stars – Von Wagner, Ivy Nile, Lash Legend, and Damon Kemp – arrived at the BT Sport Studios in London during last week’s NXT UK. Commentator Nigel McGuinness promised we would see them in in-ring action this week. 

The majority of the American performers posed for pictures and signed autographs for NXT UK fans, but Von Wagner was not so accomodating. The imposing Von Wagner snatched an autograph NXT UK’s Saxon Huxley had just signed for a fan and ripped it up. It would seem likely those two will meet at some point, and it could be this week. 

It’ll be interesting to see who Ivy Nile and Lash Legend are pitched against as both are dominating forces. 

Damon Kemp 

Brother of Olympic Gold Medal winner and WWE superstar Gable Steveson, Damon Kemp is the fourth NXT 2.0 star to cross the Atlantic. His power and collegiate wrestling background make him an interesting addition. I can see him having decent matches with any of Gallus or Heritage Cup Champion Noam Dar.    

Xia Brookside Promises To Batter Someone

Inspired by her new ally Eliza Alexander ‘battering’ Angel Hayze in her debut match, Xia Brookside will look to do the same this week. 

Symbiosis vs. Mark Andrews & Wild Boar

Mark Andrews returned to save lifelong friend Wild Boar from a beatdown by Symbiosis a few weeks ago. Eddie Dennis has challenged Andrews and Boar to take on his ‘symbiotic soldiers’ T-Bone and Primate in a tag match. This will probably happen this week. 

NXT UK Championship Contract Signing

We all know how these things go. Ilja Dragunov and Jordan Devlin will meet in the ring to sign the contract for their NXT UK Championship match in three weeks on the 200th episode of NXT UK. Some mean words will be shared and one man will attack the other.
