Williams and Jordan to challenge Pretty Deadly for NXT UK Tag Team Title
A must-see edition of NXT UK is slated to be highlighted by what is certain to be a barnburner of championship bout, as newly crowned NXT UK Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly will defend against Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan.
Partners for several years, Williams and Jordan have endured a grueling climb on NXT UK, but after claiming a pair of eye-opening victories against Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter as well as Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews, they’re finally primed for their first NXT UK Tag Team Championship Match.
The recent wins haven’t come without controversy, however, as Williams slightly bent the rules against Smith and Carter, then flat-out broke them with a boot below the belt that keyed his team’s win over Webster and Andrews, much to his partner’s chagrin.
The champions went through an arduous journey of their own to claim the brand’s tandem gold, winning four consecutive bouts as a duo before dethroning long-time titleholders Mark Coffey and Wolfgang in an instant classic in February.
What will happen when these two breakthrough tandems collide for the NXT UK Tag Team Titles?
Additionally, NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray is set to address the NXT UK Universe, newcomer Teoman will look for an encore to his impressive debut victory against Danny Jones when he takes on Josh Morrell, and Aoife Valkyrie is ready for a collision with Stevie Turner after a recent victory over Lana Austin.
