While information about the shows is still fairly sparse, we now have a better idea of what WWE's tournament in the United Kingdom this summer will look like.

Triple H spoke to media members after NXT TakeOver: New Orleans on Saturday and revealed that the first of the two shows will feature a tournament to decide a challenger for the United Kingdom Championship. The winner of that will get their title shot on night two. Triple H also said that there will be a "mixture of NXT talent" on the second show.

Royal Albert Hall in London, England will host the shows on June 18th and 19th. Pete Dunne currently holds WWE's UK title.

Before losing it to Dunne later in the year, Tyler Bate became the UK Champion by winning WWE's inaugural United Kingdom Championship tournament in January 2017. That took place in Blackpool across two days and aired live on the WWE Network.

...So is this any new guys in it?

Maybe???? They haven't really announced anything beyond what was posted

Based on the fact the winner of the tournament gets a title shot the next night - I can't imagine it is more than a 8 man tournament

But I have to assume someone like Zack Gibson would be in it since he had been rumored he was signed and he was just in the Axxess tournament

And you have to believe they want WALTER in it

The WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament events at Royal Albert Hall are beginning to take shape, as WWE.com has confirmed that a one-night tournament, a Six-Man Tag Team Match and several title defenses are slated for the historic back-to-back shows on June 18 and 19.

The events kick off with a United Kingdom Championship Tournament on Monday, June 18. Though the competitors have yet to be revealed, it is now known that the winner of the tournament will earn an opportunity to challenge WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne the following night inside London’s most vaunted venue.

The BruiserWeight will also be in action on June 18, teaming with Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) to face NXT’s Undisputed ERA. This match announcement comes on the heels of Roderick Strong’s betrayal of Dunne, and subsequent joining with Undisputed ERA, at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans. Will Dunne lead his fellow proponents of British Strong Style to victory against the black-and-yellow brand’s most controversial faction?

In addition to Dunne’s title defense against the tournament winner, the event on Tuesday, June 19, will feature three NXT Championship Matches, including an NXT North American Championship Match, an NXT Women’s Championship Match and an NXT Tag Team Championship Match. Adam Cole, Shayna Baszler and Undisputed ERA are the current titleholders, respectively, but with NXT TakeOver: Chicago happening just days before the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament events this June, there’s no telling who will be champions when WWE returns to Royal Albert Hall for the first time since 1991.

wait a sec, when did this happen?

It isn't 100% clear if she actually signed her deal or if it is she still has it on the table. I thought she signed officially when she left ICW at the end of last year but again not certain.

She made a little bit a of news this week at Mania as she was sitting with a group of women's wrestlers (per the WON)

Another note at WrestleMania is that a number of women wrestlers were sitting together and a large drunk fan during the Rousey match started saying very disrespectful things about Rousey and women in general. Kay Lee Ray got in his face and started yelling at him for disrespecting women and that she wasn't going to stand for it. The drunk fan sat down and didn't say another word about Rousey or women. Later in the show, the fan started swearing in an argument with a friend and Ray got in his face again to tell him there were children right there. The guy then sat down and went quiet and shortly after left the area.

@Eivion my original post should have said Kay Lee Ray (not Katie - stupid auto correct)

She is Scottish - works most of the UK indies. She also has done tours in Stardom.

Was in the MYC where she lost in the first round to Princesa Sugehit

I figured you meant Kay Lee Ray. I don't recall hearing anything about her signing. That story about WM weekend is neat.

I think Joey could be brought in as a guest instructor at the PC  but that's probably it. He probably makes at least close to what his downside would be in NXT now through matches and merch (and isn't/wasn't he sponsered by a porn site too?) and I don't see his shtick being allowed on TV and with out that his value to WWE goes down.
