Fresh off today’s earlier reveal of the first round matches for the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament at Download Festival June 8-10 (which you can check out here), another match has been made official for the continuation of the tournament. WWE has announced that we will see a big NXT tag team match at the UK Title Tournament from Royal Albert Hall in London, England on June 18th, as NXT Champion Aleister Black will team with Ricochet to take on the duo of The Velveteen Dream and EC3.
This is only the second match announced for the June 18 portion of the tournament, as we previously only knew that the man who tops the bracket will face Pete Dunne for the UK Title on June 19th. It also marks the second time Black will compete at the UK Title Tournament after facing Neville last year under the name Tommy End:
