Ever since WWE crowned its inaugural United Kingdom Champion back in January, the prospect of a weekly U.K. show — either on TV in the U.K. or on WWE Network — has always been lingering, but hasn’t come to fruition. This past weekend, WWE taped two special U.K. Live Events during the European tour, highlighting the division that debuted during January’s tournament and crowning a new No. 1 contender to the U.K. title.

WWE already spoiled the results of said No. 1 contendership match, as Tyler Bate will defend his United Kingdom Championship at NXT TakeOver: Chicago on May 20.

But as for the remainder of the two-night event, Triple H announced that those specials will be airing on WWE Network later this month.

What’s more, the taped shows will have commentary from a unique two-man booth, anchored by none other than the just-returned Jim Ross. Via J.R.’s most recent blog post:

I’m excited to announce that I will join the talented Nigel McGuinness to broadcast the recently taped, WWE matches from Norwich, England and these bouts will air on the WWE Network soon. Happy for this opportunity to call bouts involing new wrestlers, for me, and a new broadcast partner which freshens up all facets of the process.

Ross and McGuinness should be a very fun team, especially if the acclaim from the U.K. Tournament duo of Nigel and Michael Cole was any indication. There are no exact dates for the WWE Network airing of those U.K. shows, but they’ll likely be coming shortly.
