In a press conference at The O2 Arena on December 15, 2016, Triple H revealed that there would be a 16-man tournament to crown the inaugural WWE United Kingdom Champion. The tournament will be over a two-day period, beginning January 14, 2017 and culminating on January 15, 2017, and it will air exclusively on the WWE Network. The championship is intended to be the top championship of a new WWE Network show, produced in the United Kingdom.

Championship belt design

The center plate is modeled after the United Kingdom's royal coat of arms, featuring the lion of Llywelyn the Great and the Scottish unicorn on either side of the arms, while the center of the shield has been replaced with the WWE logo; atop this is the crown jewels. The banner atop the arms reads "United Kingdom" while the banner below reads "Champion". Like the WWE Championship belt, the United Kingdom Championship belt features two side plates, both separated by gold divider bars, with the WWE logo on the globe.
