Pete Dunne Speaks On Why He Would Rather Stay In NXT UK At The Moment

The NXT UK champion discussed in a interview about his time in the developmental brand and explains why he prefers to stay down in NXT UK at the moment. Check out what Pete Dunne had to say here.

NXT UK Champion Pete Dunne has had a wild ride in the WWE thus far. The “Bruiserweight” was introduced to the WWE universe during the first ever United Kingdom championship tournament back in January 2017. The England native was praised highly for his performance during the tournament, with many labeling Dunne as a future star for the company. He then went on to defeat Tyler Bate to capture UK championship at NXT Takeover: Chicago in a fantastic one-on-one bout.

Since then, Dunne has held the title for 600+ days and with NXT UK finally off the ground, Dunne is looking to make a lasting impression in the WWE universe. The UK champion spoke with The National about a potential move to the main roster if given the opportunity and Dunne makes it clear that his time right now is best served in NXT UK:

“I think there’s two sides to that. So there’s a side that this isn’t a race, like personally for my career this isn’t a race. I’m 25 years old so if I can build this and spend a few years doing this and then maybe go to NXT in the US and have more of a full time schedule there and then eventually work my way to main roster, it’s definitely a slow burner, I think that’s a good thing."

"But then the other side of it is sort of what I want do and if I had my choice right now I’d still be here. If I had the option to go to main roster, if I had the option to go more full time in Orlando I’d still be here because I’ve been passionate about British wrestling because I’ve been a part of this when it was literally non-existent. So to bring it to this point is just exciting to see how far we can keep pushing it.”
