This special live event will take place on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7 at Epic Studios.
In addition to seeing competitors from the United Kingdom Championship Tournament, WWE will also be bringing some of their cruiserweights. The following comes from WWE.com about who will be attending this special live event as well as comments from Triple H.
Fans will see inaugural WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate, plus Trent Seven, Pete Dunne, Mark Andrews, Wolfgang, Tyson T-Bone, Sam Gradwell, James Drake, Joseph Conners, Dan Moloney and Saxon Huxley. Also appearing will be Superstars from WWE’s Cruiserweight division seen on 205 Live on WWE Network, including Rich Swann, Akira Tozawa, TJ Perkins, The Brian Kendrick and Tony Nese.*
“It’s exciting to come to Norwich for the very first time,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “The passion of our fans in the UK makes every show an incredible, unforgettable experience.”
More information about this live event has been revealed and it will reportedly be the first tapings for WWE’s new United Kingdom television show. This is according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer.
Metlzer noted the following: “It’s not clear if this [WWE’s new U.K. show] will air on the [WWE] network or on Sky [Sports], or somewhere else, but the idea was not for it to be a network show originally as it’s meant to get the jump on ITV running its weekly show, which is not official, but probable.”
