WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne recently spoke with Sky Sports for an interview. Below are some of the highlights.
On defending his WWE U.K. Championship in other promotions outside of WWE: “It’s best for WWE. It’s not an attempt to destroy the independent scene, it’s a great feeder system for WWE. Opportunities like this aren’t just great for us, they’re great for everyone. It’s only natural to see more of this in the future.”
On his match against Tyler Bate at the NXT TakeOver: Chicago special: “At Takeover we felt a lot of pressure to show what the UK scene is capable of. We assumed we were unknown, went to kill it and our goal was to be so good it increases the pressure for a UK show. We want it, fans want it and we feel we helped with that.”
On his goals in WWE: “I’m taking it every day as it comes but I want to build a real UK scene. I’ll continue to develop and have storylines in Progress Wrestling and others like ICW. But of course, eventually I’d like to be a WWE main roster talent, be on NXT, get to a Wrestlemania and compete for the world titles while representing the UK scene.”
