The British promotion issued an official statement revealing they made the decision because of NXT UK offering tryouts to Jamie Hayter and Skye Smitson.
Here’s what the statement said;
“Shortly after it was announced Jamie Hayter and Skye Smitson would compete in one of the feature matches in our return to live events, both women were contacted by NXT UK about receiving try-outs & have opted to accept that offer. We wish them both the best of luck. But for us, as has been our motto throughout this whole pandemic, THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
With no champion or challenger available, we have made the decision to vacate the women’s championship and schedule a contest between the last two women to hold that belt in GISELE SHAW & ZOE LUCAS. They will meet at next Sunday’s Live At The Cockpit 51 and we will crown a brand new Undisputed British Women’s Champion.
Despite obstacles in our way, we remain undeterred in our quest to produce the best pro wrestling on these shores. We’re excited to be getting back to doing what we love and we thank you for your continued support throughout these difficult times.
Live At The Cockpit 51 takes place next Sunday July 4th from a sold out and socially distanced London Cockpit.“
Jamie Hayter won the Undisputed Women’s Championship at RevPro Epic Encounters 8 in February. She successfully defended the title twice against Skye Smitson and was set to do it a third time. But it now seems that both wrestlers are NXT UK bound.
Two former champions Zoe Lucas and Gisele Shaw will clash to claim the title once again.
