    Interesting.

    When exactly did Germany and Austria become apart of the UK?

    Someone help is Belfast or Dublin not getting any shows this time ?

    • Omega’d

      Nope. NXT will be doing a couple of shows in Belfast and Dublin in June but (currently) none is scheduled in November.

  • Seamus1976

    Omega’d u think they’ll put on any or announce any for Ireland I know their popular here in Ireland

    • Omega’d

      I would of imagined had there been any planned they would of been announced when the rest of the UK dates were announced. But just like anything else when it comes to WWE, anything can happen so who knows.

      It does look unlikely that there will be anymore Ireland tour dates this year. I personally think it’s strange that they aren’t doing at least 1 show in Ireland.
