Given the timing, it could be anything from establishing and emphasizing a new code of conduct to what the future holds for the brand itself.

A number of NXT UK contracted wrestlers were named in various allegations over the past two weeks as part of the #SpeakingOut movement. Two of those wrestlers, Travis Banks and Ligero, were released Friday. Additionally, NXT UK has held no shows in months due to the pandemic.

Prior to the pandemic, WWE had been in an expansion mode with plans for using the UK formula to create NXT outposts all over the world. But with the company’s short term goals focusing on increasing profit margins while taking in less revenue, leading to massive cuts, those expansion plans have been shelved for the time being.
