At the end of this month, WWE will be bringing NXT UK to Wales for NXT UK Takeover: Cardiff. The show is set to be headlined by Tyler Bate challenging WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER for his title in what many are dubbing a dream-match.
In January 2019 for NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool, main roster star Finn Balor made a surprise appearance, defeating fellow Irishman Jordan Devlin in an impromptu bout.
However, Triple H has recently revealed that two other main roster stars have spoken to him about their desires to make appearances in NXT UK.
Speaking to TalkSport‘s Alex McCarthy, Triple H revealed that Raw stars Cesaro and Drew McIntyre are “constantly asking” about whether or not they can have stints in WWE’s newest brand.
Triple H told me talent asks him 'all the time' to appear and be apart of angles on both NXT and NXT UK.
He name drops Drew McIntyre and Cesaro as guys who are 'constantly asking' in regards to NXT UK.

Triple H reportedly noted that other main roster stars ask him if they can appear not only on NXT UK, but also NXT. However, HHH provided no names.
“The Game” did not reveal whether there were talks going on backstage about bringing Cesaro and Drew McIntyre to NXT UK, or if it is something he would even consider.
Several weeks ago now, former NXT Champion Drew McIntyre revealed that he wants to face WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER in NXT UK.
This is just one of many other mouth-watering matches that WWE could put on if higher-ups allowed main roster stars to occasionally appear in NXT UK. It would also ensure that the brand is injected with some much-needed star power.
