With the 16-participant field having been confirmed last week, today saw WWE unveil the bracket (along with the eight first round matches) for this weekend’s United Kingdom Championship tournament.
The four matches on the left side of the bracket are:
Tyler Bate vs. Tucker
Jordan Devlin vs. Danny Burch (formerly known as Martin Stone on the indies)
Trent Seven vs. H.C. Dyer
Wolfgang vs. Tyson T-Bone
The matches on the right side are:
Mark Andrews vs. Dan Moloney
James Drake vs. Joseph Conners
Pete Dunne vs. Roy Johnson
Saxon Huxley vs. Sam Gradwell
Before the tournament takes place this weekend, WWE will air a special after Raw tonight on the Network that showcases the competitors and how it all came together. The two shows will take place at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool on January 14th and 15th, with Michael Cole and Nigel McGuinness calling the action live on the Network.
The winner of the tournament will be crowned as the first UK Champion, and Triple H has expressed that it’s WWE’s intent that the shows will lead to a weekly series from the UK airing on the Network at some point in the future.
