Time for night two of the 2018 UK Championship Tournament. We kick things off with a video package highlighting want went down on night one as well as spotlighting some of the wrestlers who will be competing tonight.

We then head back to Royal Albert Hall where we are joined by Mauro Ranallo and Nigel McGuinness once again. They run down the card. If the rebranding in the opening video package and fact that three NXT titles are on the line hadn’t made it obvious, the ring ropes are now yellow and the ring apron is emblazoned with the NXT logo, making it clear that this is now an NXT event.

We start things off with Johnny Saint standing in an NXT ring in Royal Albert Hall. This opening kind of ends up being a spoiler of things to come since the show didn’t air live. Saint does a voice over and talks about the history of grappling in the UK before we get the show open and head to the commentary team for the evening, Mauro Ranallo and Nigel McGuinness.
