Also announced for next week's NXT UK episode is The Hunt (Wild Boar and Primate) vs. Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner of WALTER's Imperium stable.
- As noted, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick has announced that next Tuesday's show will feature a ten-man Captain's Challenge Match. Oney Lorcan will choose 4 partners over the next week while WWE Crusierweight Champion Drew Gulak will do the same. Gulak and Lorcan took to Twitter this evening and reacted to the announcement.
Gulak wrote, "this coming from the man who used to mock me, call me a joke, and with where he stands today! laughable. i'll humor you, drake. who to choose? i'll take the day before I start to decide"
"I KNOW A FEW GUYS," Lorcan added, indicating that he may call on help from the WWE NXT brand.
