WWE United Kingdom Championship
The WWE United Kingdom Championship was born when sixteen of the top competitors from the United Kingdom and Ireland battled to become the first WWE United Kingdom Champion in a two-night tournament in Blackpool, England, in January 2017.
The title began being featured on NXT when Tyler Bate debuted during the January 28, 2017, tapings in San Antonio, Texas, which aired February 1. During the February 1 tapings, the title’s very first defense took place, where Bate defeated Trent Seven (aired February 15). The title was defended for the first time outside of WWE when Bate retained the title against Mark Andrews on a show for the London-based promotion, Progress Wrestling; the show took place in Orlando, Florida on March 31 as part of WrestleMania Axxess.
The first title change, as well as first defense to air live, took place on May 20, 2017, at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, where Pete Dunne defeated Bate to become champion.
