Pete Dunne says he has wrapped up his time on the independent scene.
The longest-reigning champion in WWE at the moment is the United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne. Dunne defeated Tyler Bate in the main event of today's PROGRESS Wrestling 'Chapter 82: Unboxing' show. According to Dunne that was his last match on the British independent wrestling scene as he noted the following on Twitter:
Finished my time on the British independent scene tonight. Closing out a week that saw me in New York, Germany, Spain and London. 13 years that I wouldn’t change for anything, on to the next chapter -- pic.twitter.com/ATDcN1fUVA— Pete Dunne (@PeteDunneYxB) December 30, 2018
