A Tag Team title match is set for next week’s episode of NXT UK.
WWE has announced that Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) will defend their NXT UK Tag Team titles against The Hunt (Wild Boar & Primate) on NXT UK next Thursday. The match was set up by a backstage segment with The Hunt & Eddie Dennis and Sid Scala that aired on this week’s show.
In the segment, The Hunt and Dennis entered Scala’s office earlier this week and Dennis asked him who the NXT UK Tag Team Champions were before Gallus. Dennis answered the question himself and said it was Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster. Dennis said The Hunt recently defeated Andrews & Webster. The Hunt intimidated Scala and said they should be the number one contenders to Gallus’ titles.
Scala told The Hunt and Dennis that he would speak with NXT UK general manager Johnny Saint and see what they could do. Later in the show, Gallus defending their titles against The Hunt was made official for next week.
in October, it was revealed that The Hunt had turned against Andrews & Webster and aligned with Dennis. The Hunt defeated Andrews & Webster on last week’s NXT UK after Dennis got involved in the match.
Gallus have been NXT UK Tag Team Champions since winning the titles from Andrews & Webster in October 2019.
