​What Is British Round Rules Match: Full list of Rules for NXT Heritage Cup Final

The NXT Heritage Cup would be back and this is going to be a blockbuster event, particularly keeping in mind that this will be played under the British Rounds rules and that is a jargon that is leaving the fans baffled ahead of the next PPV for the NXT brand, the developmental brand of WWE.


It started back on September 10th, 2020 where WWE announced the relaunch of NXT UK, coming back from the hiatus that was forced by the pandemic. The Heritage Cup was supposed to continue and bring the UK edition of wrestlers to the main brand. Unfortunately, things came to a halt during Covid. But now that it is up and running again, here are a few things that you need to know about the tournament and what exactly are the British Round Rules that should be followed.

#1 Round durations in British Round Rules Match

Every match consists of six rounds that would last for three minutes and will have a 20-seconds break in between.

It is a 2-out-of-3 falls match and the one who pulls the pin or submission fastest in the game twice would be the winner of this battle.

The matches can be won via pinfall, submission or countout, the three basic rules of a wrestling vie.
