Ben Carter set for action on next week's NXT UK

Ben Carter’s second match for NXT UK is set for next week.

On today’s NXT UK episode, it was announced that Carter will be in action on NXT UK next Thursday. Carter’s opponent for next week’s show wasn’t announced, but Sam Gradwell was then shown watching clips of Carter’s match against NXT Cruiserweight Champion¬†Jordan Devlin from two weeks ago. Gradwell asked if this was supposed to be exciting. Gradwell admitted that Carter pushed Devlin to his limit, but Gradwell said we’ll see how exciting Carter is when Gradwell sends him packing back home.

Carter made his NXT UK debut as the guest on Noam Dar’s Supernova Sessions talk show¬†two weeks ago. It set up Carter unsuccessfully challenging for Devlin’s version of the NXT Cruiserweight Championship in that episode’s main event.

It was officially announced last month that Carter had signed with WWE and was coming to NXT UK.

Next Thursday’s NXT UK will be headlined by Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley), Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith, The Hunt (Wild Boar & Primate), and Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster facing off in a four-way elimination tag match. The winning team will become the number one contenders to Gallus’ (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) NXT UK Tag Team titles.

It was announced on NXT UK today that Eddie Dennis will be banned from accompanying The Hunt in next week’s number one contender’s match.
