Date and time change for UK Championship Live special on WWE Network


The WWE UK Championship Live special on the WWE Network has been moved back by a day, and will now premiere on Friday, May 19 rather than Thursday.

Apart from the date change, the time has also been changed to accommodate the United Kingdom viewers, with the show kicking off at 3PM EST which is 8PM GMT. Since this is specifically targeted for the UK audience, WWE wanted to maximize the viewership of the premiere. A replay of the special will air at 8PM EST later in the day.

Jim Ross and Nigel McGuinness will be doing commentary for this 90-minute show, taped over two days at Epic Studios in Norwich on May 6 and 7.

The date and time change was originally reported by British newspaper The Mirror.
