NXT UK is one of WWE's developmental brands which was established on December 15, 2016.


In a press conference at The O2 Arena on December 15, 2016, Paul "Triple H" Levesque revealed that there would be a 16-man tournament to crown the inaugural WWE United Kingdom Champion. The tournament was held over a two-day period, January 14 and 15, 2017, and aired exclusively on the WWE Network. The championship was intended as the top championship of a new WWE Network show, produced in the United Kingdom (the show and its premiere date have yet to be revealed by the WWE). Tyler Bate won the inaugural tournament to become the first WWE United Kingdom Champion.

On May 19, 2017, WWE held a follow-up to the United Kingdom Championship tournament, titled United Kingdom Championship Special.

On April 7, 2018, a second United Kingdom Championship Tournament event was scheduled for June 18 and 19 at the Royal Albert Hall. On June 7, Johnny Saint was appointed General Manager of WWE's United Kingdom-based brand.

On June 18, 2018, it was announced that WWE's United Kingdom-based brand would begin filming a new show titled NXT UK in July 2018, and that championships for the brand's women's and tag team divisions would be introduced.
