NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion to be crowned in eight-man tournament

The top Superstars in NXT UK will battle to write a new chapter in the brand’s history, but only one will be crowned the first-ever holder of the NXT UK Heritage Cup.

In the coming weeks, eight Superstars will compete in a tournament contested under British Rounds rules.

The field includes Flash Morgan Webster, Noam Dar, Alexander Wolfe, A-Kid, “The Bomber” Dave Mastiff, Trent Seven, Joseph Conners and a final wildcard entrant yet to be determined.

The British Rounds rules are as follows:

— All matches consist of six three-minute rounds.
— All matches are 2-out-of-3 Falls.
— Falls can won be won by pinfall, submission or count-out.
— Once a fall occurs, the round ends.
— The match ends once a wrestler has won two falls.
— In the event of a disqualification or knockout, the match instantly ends without the need for two falls.
— If all six rounds are completed, whomever is ahead on falls wins the match.
— There will be a 20-second break between each round.
— Following the tournament, the NXT UK Heritage Cup will be defended as a championship under the same rules.
