Just in case we don’t have enough. The WWE Network is now a staple of life for wrestling fans as WWE can put on whatever they want at any given time. That’s one of the major perks, with shows like NXT being one of the highlights of the week. The show is one of the best in wrestling today and that means it’s time to expand things a bit. That would be overseas, and now we know when things get going.
On its Twitter account, WWE has announced that the NXT UK series will debut next Wednesday October 18 at 8pm BST (3pm Eastern Standard Time) on the WWE Network. The first few episodes were already taped over the summer and more tapings will follow in the next few weeks. This will be the fourth WWE show airing on the WWE Network on Wednesdays, along with 205 Live, NXT and the Mae Young Classic.

They have a trailer and everything.
Opinion: That’s quite the stacked lineup on Wednesdays and if you also watch Lucha Underground and Ring of Honor, you’re in for a very busy day of wrestling. The lineup will lighten up a bit in a few weeks with the Mae Young Classic going away, though there’s no way of telling how things are going to go from there. I’m not the most excited about the new series, but things have surprised me before.
