WWE returned to the United Kingdom earlier today to tape some episodes of the upcoming NXT UK series that will be coming to the WWE Network very soon. The show will feature some of the best talent that the UK has to offer at the moment, and that includes female stars. WWE announced earlier this week that the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Champion will be crowned soon, and while there is still no inaugural champion as of right now, the company has posted an image showing off what the brand new title looks like. A tournament is being held tomorrow to crown a new champion, and it will consist of Toni Storm, Xia Brookside, Rhea Ripley, Dakota Kai, Jinny, Millie McKenzie, Isla Dawn, and Nina Samuels.

The New Day continues to experience great success year after year, and their good fortune does not appear to be slowing down any time soon. In fact, The New Day just won the SmackDown Tag Team Championships from The Bludgeon Brothers on SmackDown this past Tuesday night, and Xavier Woods has just managed to set a brand new world record. New Day member Xavier Woods confirmed earlier today that he has just shattered the Guinness World Record for “Most Subscribed Celebrity Video Game YouTube channel.” Woods’ gaming channel, UpUpDownDown, won the record with 1.6 million subscribers and counting. Woods even received a plaque acknowledging the record, which can be viewed down below:

As reported earlier today, former Cruiserweight Champion Neville is no longer under contract to WWE. It is certainly a shame to see Neville depart WWE, but plenty of wrestlers and promotions outside the company have already taken an interest in bringing the former NXT Champion in. What was originally unclear was if Neville had a 90-day no-compete clause on his WWE contract as most WWE performers do. However, a recent update provided by the Wrestling Observer says that Neville is now completely finished with WWE and is free to compete wherever he chooses. Neville has not wrestled since October 2017, with promotions and events such as All In on the horizon, now would be the perfect time for him to have a new start in his wrestling career.
