Germany’s wXw is the only independent promotion currently offered on Peacock & WWE Network, which they started supporting on there from January 2023 onwards. wXw has been putting out shows on a mostly weekly basis on Saturdays since the indie drops started back in August 2020.
Although wXw events are second-run, as their events air on their own service (wXwNOW via YouTube membership) first, we will report on the happenings of wXw events as they come to the WWE Network to give the promotion, and the European scene, some more deserved exposure. It will also serve as a way to prime readers on eventual standouts that might join NXT Europe in the future.
wXw We Love Wrestling is wXw’s most commonly aired show. This show airs most of their non-marquee events which showcases the best of the European professional wrestling scene and beyond, while also building to their next marquee event. Who will have their momentum boosted or de-boosted during the road to Broken Rules? Find out below!
