NXT TV Preview (8/22): Post-TakeOver: Brooklyn IV Show, UK Title Match

WWE returns to the WWE Network this evening with the taped post-NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV edition of NXT TV from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

WWE.com posted the following preview for tonight’s show:

WWE NXT preview, Aug. 22, 2018: Dunne and Gibson battle in Brooklyn for U.K. Title

On the heels of a monumental NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV, the NXT Universe will be in for a treat as WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne defends his title against 2018 U.K. Championship Tournament winner Zack Gibson on this Wednesday’s WWE NXT, emanating from the sold-out Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Pete Dunne and Zack Gibson to throw down for the United Kingdom Championship

WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne is the longest-reigning champion in WWE, but that distinction could come to an end when The BruiserWeight faces the familiar yet daunting challenge of “Liverpool’s No. 1” Zack Gibson tonight on WWE NXT.

Dunne and Gibson battled at the NXT U.K. Championship in London earlier this summer in a hard-hitting contest that saw Dunne prevail against the 2018 WWE U.K. Championship Tournament winner. The gritty Gibson will get another opportunity to dethrone The BruiserWeight, however, as Dunne and Gibson will close out an amazing SummerSlam Week in Brooklyn when they collide one-on-one.

Will Gibson amend his loss from Royal Albert Hall and become the third U.K Champion in WWE history? Or will Dunne, who appears to have set his sights on Ricochet’s newly captured NXT North American Championship, etch another stellar defense into his already impressive reign? Find out tonight on NXT when these British bruisers square off for the top crown in the NXT UK brand!

Bianca Belair returns to action to face Mae Young Classic competitor Deonna Purrazzo

Bianca Belair will return to action after being temporarily sidelined by injury when she takes on new NXT signee and upcoming Mae Young Classic competitor Deonna Purrazzo on WWE NXT. Prior to her injury, Belair had been on an incredibly dominant streak that has yet to see her lose in singles competition. Purrazzo will look to put the first L in The EST’s loss column and garner pivotal momentum heading into the upcoming Mae Young Classic. Will The Virtuosa best Belair in Brooklyn?

What will be the fallout from NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV?

Following a high-octane NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV, the fallout of the epic event will kickstart in Brooklyn on Wednesday night. With new champions such as NXT North American Champion Ricochet and NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane crowned, unbelievable results like NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa outlasting Johnny Gargano in their brutal Last Man Standing Match, and the emergence of new Superstars like Matt Riddle, what will the atmosphere be like? Watch TakeOver highlights, exclusive post-show interviews and much more tonight on WWE NXT, streaming on the award-winning WWE Network at 8/7 C.
