Not content with having programming on nine consecutive nights over WrestleMania week, WWE have now announced an NXT UK special for that week titled Prelude.

The event will air on Thursday 8th April on WWE Network internationally and Peacock in the USA.

The main event for the show has been announced with WALTER defending the NXT UK Championship against newcomer Rampge Brown.

The match will represent the first title match since he made his NXT UK bow in October 2020.

The second match announced will be a number one contender match for the Heritage Cup currently held by A-Kid.

The match will be an England vs. Scotland bout as Tyler Bate will face Noam Dar.

Prelude will take place at the BT Sport studio in London on the same night as the second part of NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver. On that event, WALTER had been rumoured to defend his championship against Tommaso Ciampa. The announced main event for this show obvious pours cold water on that prospective match.
