Pete Dunne is perfectly happy in NXT UK.
As the NXT UK Champion, Pete Dunne is the face of the NXT UK brand. Dunne has carried the torch for the NXT UK brand since May 2017 when he defeated Tyler Bate for the NXT UK Title. Dunne has appeared on NXT, Raw, and at the WWE Royal Rumble during his time as champion. But if he has it his way, he would remain overseas.
"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," Dunne told The National. "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."
On the most recent episode of NXT UK, Dunne picked up a victory over Wolfgang in a non-title match. You can view results from Wednesday's episode of NXT UK here.
