NXT UK Talent Pulled From Title Tournament

We noted yesterday that several NXT UK talents broke the news of the tournament on Twitter before it was officially announced, one of the talents being Killer Kelly, as she Tweeted the following:

“I’m used to first evers. It’s time to repeat it this weekend in Birmingham, ????????. NXT UK, I will become your first EVER Women’s champion”.

Kelly later deleted the Tweet, and posted a new Tweet shortly after noting she will watching the tournament closely, which likely means she will not be competing:

I guess I will be watching this tournament very closely…
