We begin the show with a cold open promo from Sami Zayn. He says that even if he’s lost a few big ones in the past he is certain he can succeed this time. He goes on to say that he’s on a road to redemption that ends when he beats Adrian Neville to become NXT Champion.
Titus O’Neil shows up and tells Sami that his road to redemption has to go through him first. Zayn asks if that’s a challenge to which Titus responds that it’s an open invitation. Zayn accepts, saying that if there’s a roadblock on his road to redemption he’ll go through it.

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.
