Tyler Bate's WWE NXT return is set.

WWE has announced that NXT UK Champion, Tyler Bate will make his in-ring return on the 8/23 edition of NXT 2.0 when he faces Von Wagner in singles competition.

From WWE:

NXT UK Champion Tyler Bate made a shocking arrival this past Tuesday when he stood eye-to-eye with NXT Champion Bron Breakker, but if Bate wants to plant his flag on NXT 2.0, he’ll have to go through Von Wagner’s jungle.Can The Big Strong Boi topple the towering Superstar, or will he quickly realize that he’s living in Wagner’s World?Find out tonight on NXT 2.0 at 8/7 C on USA!

Bate made his NXT debut during the 2019 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament alongside former Moustache Mountain tag partner, Trent Seven. The pair defeated the Street Profits in the tournament's first round before losing to The Forgotten Sons in the semi-final.

The Big Strong Boi would then become a staple of WWE NXT UK programming for over three years, recently reclaiming the NXT UK Championship after winning a tournament to name a new champion following Ilja Dragunov vacating that belt due to injury. Of course, that title win has yet to air on NXT UK TV, but the result of the tourney was spoiled when Bate turned up with the NXT UK Title around his waist at last week's NXT Heatwave special.
