WWE are back in what is pretty much their second home - the United Kingdom - for the first-ever special event for the NXT UK brand.

After the success that Triple H has had building up the original NXT back in the United States, an idea was pitched for the stars of the British Isles to form their own show on home soil.

It only started a few months ago, but the rewards are being reaped already, and Blackpool will host the first ever UK TakeOver on January 12.

The likes of Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate have already made their mark on the WWE main roster, with 600-day UK Champion Dunne making a one-off appearance on Raw in 2017, and Bate likewise has wrestled a few times on the 205 Live brand.

They've both helped build the United Kingdom brand with their star power, but WWE are always planning bigger moves to sustain their future.

And in a week where the start-up of All Elite Wrestling has dominated headlines, HHH and company have quietly gone along with their business.

WWE have followed up with a big reveal of their own today, and whilst not as big as a brand-new promotion, it will mean a significant amount to British wrestlers.

At an exclusive media event in London, Triple H, flanked with the likes of Shawn Michaels, Charlotte Flair and Finn Balor, announced the creating of the WWE UK Performance Centre, the equivalent of the successful original that is based in Orlando, Florida.

Triple H has today revealed the creation of the NXT UK Performance Centre in London.

The likes of Flair made great strides in her early days using the state-of-the-art Centre provided by WWE and she probably wouldn't be the athlete she was today without it, so it can only mean good things for the current UK talent.

Speaking on the creation of the UK facility, Triple H stated, per SkySports: "This is the latest milestone in our global localization strategy and the next step in establishing local NXT brands around the world.

"We are incredibly proud to open the UK Performance Center and provide our NXT UK Superstars the same world-class coaching and development programs that we deliver at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida."

With rumours that there are plans in place to open many more similar facilities around the world, it's truly a great time to be a young, talented wrestler with the WWE trying to secure the best talent that they can get their hands on.
