Production

Background

NXT TakeOver is a series of professional wrestling shows that began on May 29, 2014, when WWE's NXT brand held their second live special on the WWE Network. The NXT UK brand debuted in August 2018 and subsequently adopted their sister brand's TakeOver specials, beginning with NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool in 2019. On November 16, 2019 on WWE.com announced that a third NXT UK TakeOver would take place yet again in Blackpool.

Storylines

The card included matches that result from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches, with results predetermined by WWE's writers on the NXT UK brand. Storylines were produced on the NXT UK television program.

On the Nov 7 episode of NXT UK, Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster's match ended in a no contest after Gallus and Imperium interfered. On the Dec 12 episode of NXT UK, Gallus' title match against Imperium's Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner ended in a no contest after Mark Andrews, Flash Morgan Webster and Grizzled Young Veterans brawled. Then, Johnny Saint and Sid Scala came out and announced that Gallus will defend against Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster, Grizzled Young Veterans and Imperium at NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool II in a ladder match.

On the Nov 28 episode of NXT UK, after Piper Niven's match against Jinny, Toni Storm returned and attacked Kay Lee Ray. Then on the Dec 5 episode of NXT UK, after Toni Storm's match with Killer Kelly, Ray attacked Storm and Niven came out and helped but Storm however said that she did not need Niven's help. On the Dec 12 episode of NXT UK, after Kay Lee Ray's match with Isla Dawn, Ray grabbed the mic and talked trash about Storm and Niven only for them to come out and Ray attacked both superstars. As Ray was leaving, Sid Scala announced that Ray will defend her title against Storm and Niven in a triple-threat match at NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool II.
