WWE NXT UK REPORT: A TSAR ABDICATES, A TITLE MATCH THAT NEVER WAS, A NUMBER ONE CONTENDER MATCH, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2022-08-04 18:00:00

Your announcers are Andy Shepherd and Nigel McGuinness.

NXT UK Men’s Champion Ilja Dragunov makes his way to the ring and he is on crutches with his left foot in a boot.

Ilja says last week, against Wolfgang, he suffered an injury. He says he suffered a severe ankle injury early in the match. He says he fought until the very end. I fought until the very end because this NXT UK Championship is not a privilege. Being the NXT UK Champion means to fight to be the best on this brand. This brand has only had fighting champions. As much as he would love to continue to do that, he cannot.

This injury means that medical will not clear him. They do not know how long he will need to recover, it would be best to relinquish the championship today.

Ilja asks what should he say right now. Should he talk about how hard he worked for this. He won’t. Every single superstar in the back is working hard. Should I talk about my hard past coming from Russia to Germany, I am not going to do this. We all have to fight our own battles and I am not special. Should I talk about the fact if I was more careful with my health, this injury might not have happened? No, I don’t regret anything. I sacrifice my existence to get into this ring. All I ever wanted was to show my true soul. I wanted to encourage people that with will, you can endure every pain if you have a reason and can win. I fought with my soul as your NXT UK Champion.

As sad as I am to relinquish this championship and know that somebody else will take my place, I know one thing. No one beats me except myself. I will come back. I will come back as a better man than you see today. If you think I was strong holding this championship, you will be surprised how strong I will become to get it back.

Dragunov puts the title belt on the mat.

We go to Chase University in the UK.

Andre, Thea, and Bodhi go around London.

Andre says there is one more teachable moment and that is to show NXT UK what Chase U is about.

They get to the Performance Centre and see Sha Samuels sleeping outside. Andre says this is a man down on his luck and they are here to help people.

Bodhi gives Sha a speech about how he could get into Chase University.

Sha says he might not have any shoes and he might have lost his wife, but he still has his boot and he still works at NXT UK.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Sid Scala and Johnny Saint are asked about what is next with the NXT UK Men’s Championship. Johnny says they have figured it out. Sid announces an eight man tournament to determine the new champion. The participants and brackets will be announced later tonight.
