WWE News: Triple H announces to introduce the future Of World Wrestling Entertainment UK brand is coming soon
It's not been too long when WWE announced the return of the United Kingdom (UK) Championship Tournament, which will take held on June 18 and 19 at Royal Albert Hall in London, England.
This one-day tournament will show the number one contender for the UK Championship.
On the second day, the UK, NXT North American, NXT Women's, and NXT Tag Titles will all be defended.
WWE star Triple H spoke with Mirror Sport about next month's tournament where some announcements will be made about the future of the UK division.
"While we are there at this UK event at the Royal Albert Hall, we will be making some announcements about the future of the UK Championship brand there in the UK and moving forward," Triple H said. "That brand still remains very near and dear to me and it's something I want to move on. It's taking a little bit longer than I anticipated in getting things done and getting them done in the way I want them to get done ... but it's happening. It will be meaningful to everybody there and I look forward to showcasing the UK talent to the world."
The plan is not new for WWE to begin a U.K. exclusive brand since they have simultaneously launched a WWE Performance Center in the country.
They started the ball rolling with the U.K. title tournament in January 2017, which was a resounding success. That tournament, won by Tyler Bate, has only been followed up by one more exclusive U.K. show, a U.K. Championship Special in May 2017.
The company announced that it is now planning a two-day event for the famed Royal Albert Hall in June of this year, though there still has not been the word on when the brand will get its own television show (taped in the U.K.) on the WWE Network.
