WWE NXT UK General Manager Johnny Saint has announced that next Wednesday’s episode on the WWE Network will feature the first-ever British Rounds match for the brand.
Kassius Ohno will take on Sid Scala, who is the assistant to Saint.
Last week’s episode saw Ohno defeat Scala in a singles match, which was Sid’s first match since becoming the assistant to the GM.
It was noted on this week’s episode that a British Rounds match is a traditional staple of the UK wrestling scene. Announcer Nigel McGuinness noted that there will be 6 three-minute rounds that can be won with two pinfalls, two submissions, or a knockout in a round. There are also thirty-second breaks in between the rounds. The episode featured a video with Nigel, Saint, Robbie Brookside and NXT General Manager William Regal talking about competing in British Rounds matches.
