WWE will unify the NXT and NXT UK Championships on September 4 at NXT Worlds Collide. NXT Champion Bron Breakker will face NXT UK Champion Tyler Bate in a title unification match at Worlds Collide on Sunday, September 4. The match was made official during Tuesday’s WWE NXT episode.
Bate appeared on NXT 2.0 last week, confronting Breakker in a face-to-face segment to close the show. On this week’s NXT, Breakker opened the show by calling out Bate. Breakker called out Bate to challenge him to a “title-for-title” match at Worlds Collide, and Bate accepted. The title unification match for NXT Worlds Collide was made official later in Tuesday’s show.

The unification match comes on the heels of WWE announcing that NXT UK is being shuttered, with a new NXT Europe brand launching in its place in 2023. Additionally, several NXT UK wrestlers were released from their WWE contracts last week. NXT UK will “end in its current form and serve as the foundation for a bigger, better NXT Europe,” according to a WWE statement.
Worlds Collide is set for Sunday, September 4 at 4 p.m. Eastern time on Peacock and WWE Network, the same day as AEW’s All Out pay-per-view.
