History will be made tonight in WWE.

For the first time ever, the WWE United Kingdom Championship will be defended on tonight's episode of NXT when champion Tyler Bate takes on challenger Trent Seven.

The 19-year-old Bate became the first ever WWE UK Champion last month, when he beat 15 other men to the title in a two-day tournament in Blackpool, streamed exclusively on the WWE Network.

Tyler Bate from Dudley became champion at just 19-years-old.

Bate capped off an emotional tournament – which saw him defeat talents like Jordan Devlin, Wolfgang and Pete Dunne – by receiving the title from WWE legends Triple H and William Regal.

Since being crowned champion, Bate's journey has seen him make a walkout appearance at last month's Royal Rumble in front of almost 50,000 fans and make his debut on NXT, WWE's developmental territory that showcases the company's next big stars.

WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate defends his Title against Trent Seven tonight on NXT from 1am GMT, available live and on-demand on WWE Network.
