WWE have today announced that NXT will return to the United Kingdom for a series of live dates this June, culminating in a three-day run at this year's Download Festival.
As revealed on WWE.com, the tour starts at Aberdeen's GE Oil & Gas Arena on June 5th, and will take-in Manchester on the 6th, Leeds on the 7th, and Brighton on the 8th. It will conclude with three shows at Donington Park from June 9-11th, with tickets set to go on sale this Friday, March 17th at 10am.
NXT also performed three shows at last year's Download Festival, with current NXT Champion Bobby Roode making his debut during the Saturday afternoon show. This tour is the first time NXT has held live event events on British shores since last June, when WWE took their developmental brand to a handful of cities across the UK and Ireland.
WWE have already announced a handful of big names for the tour, including Roode, reigning NXT Women's Champion Asuka, Kassius Ohno, Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose, and Sanity, though they also note that this is subject to change. Fans attending the Download shows will also have the opportunity to meet the wrestlers during a set of autograph signings.
