A-Kid to challenge Dar for NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship


An incredible episode of NXT UK will feature A-Kid challenging Sha Samuels Noam Dar for the NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship, Sam Gradwell and a partner of his choosing teaming up to take on Pretty Deadly, and Emilia McKenzie throwing down with Isla Dawn.

The Scottish Supernova hasn’t stopped running his mouth since capturing the trophy by winning an eight-Superstar tournament before unseating Tyler Bate, but he’ll face a major threat to his reign against former NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion A-Kid.

The Spanish Superstar held the title for six months from November 2020 until May 2021, defeating Trent Seven to become the inaugural champion and retaining it in some harrowing bouts against Bate and Sha Samuels before losing it to Bate in a rematch.

A-Kid bounced back by besting Nathan Frazer in an NXT UK Heritage Cup Rules Match to earn another opportunity, but he is certain to have his hands full with Dar, who will stoop to any low to keep his trophy and will likely have considerable backup in the form of the meddlesome Sha Samuels at ringside.

Plus, Pretty Deadly will be back in action for the first time since losing the NXT UK Tag Team Championship last month to Moustache Mountain.

Sam Stoker and Lewis Howley will be opposed by the menacing Gradwell and a partner of his choosing after The Thunderstorm nearly came to blows with the former titleholders several weeks ago in the backstage area.

Finally, the bizarre Dawn is set to tangle with the skeptical McKenzie. The White Witch previously stole McKenzie's watch and has since kept it as a trophy, so what will happen when the two competitors collide?
