New NXT UK Championship Unveiled at TV Taping

The WWE United Kingdom Championship was rechristened as the NXT UK Championship on Friday at a TV taping today for the brand.

General Manager Johnny Saint held an unveiling ceremony with Imperium to kick off the tapings giving WALTER his new belt. 

As we previously reported, one of the WWE United Kingdom title belts in possession of WALTER was stolen last month from his rental car during a “smash and grab” incident in Chicago. As far as we can tell, the belt was never recovered. 

It’s hard to make out the differences between the two belts based on footage from fans, but there appears to have only been a slight change to the design to replace the WWE logo with an NXT logo.
