NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov to address the masses following his arduous title retention against Wolfgang
A can’t-miss edition of NXT UK will see Ilja Dragunov addressing the NXT UK Universe one week after his grueling title retention against the menacing Wolfgang, Oliver Carter continuing his war with Die Familie when he locks horns with Rohan Raja, and Bodhi Hayward tangling with Sha Samuels.
After fighting through unimaginable back pain during his showdown with Wolfgang, the NXT UK Champion improved to 6-0 in title defenses since dethroning Gunther at NXT TakeOver 36 on Aug. 22, 2021.
Now closing in on a calendar year as titleholder, what will Dragunov say to the adoring NXT UK Universe? Will a new challenger emerge?
Plus, Carter continues his longstanding battle with Die Familie when he throws down with Raja. Teoman and company failed in their efforts to recruit Carter, who is now alone due to an unfortunate injury to Ashton Smith, and they’ve now seemingly locked in on the former NXT UK Tag Team Champion as their main target.
Can the outnumbered Carter figure out a way to outhit and outwit Raja?
Finally, the enthusiastic Bodhi Hayward will represent Chase University when he competes in his first NXT UK match against Sha Samuels, who essentially freaked out when Hayward encouraged him to keep his head up during a chance encounter in London.
