The injuries continue to pile up for WWE, with the latest star going down due to injury being Ilja Dragunov.
As reported by Inside The Ropes, @ Wednesday’s NXT UK tapings, Dragunov announced he was forced to vacate his NXT UK Championship due to injury. He didn’t state the nature of the injury, nor a timetable for his return, but he was wearing a walking boot.
@ the same tapings, it was announced an 8-man tournament would be held, to crown a new champion.
The tournament started @ the tapings & featured inaugural champion Tyler Bate, Mark Coffey, Trent Seven & Oliver Carter winning their 1st round matches, to advance to the semi-finals. WWE will hold another set of tapings today.
What, no Interim champion...?
