The Irish pro-wrestling scene is experiencing a boom period with the likes of Balor, Becky Lynch and Sheamus having established themselves as major stars in WWE, while local promotion OTT has been making waves on the independent scene.
NXT has become one of the hottest brands in wrestling in recent years, and the UK territory has produced a number of stellar pay-per-views featuring some of the best of the European talent.
Irish interests will turn to the likes of NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin, Valkyrie and Michael May who are currently performing in NXT UK and will be keen to secure a place on the card in front of a lively home crowd.
