Newly crowned WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne said Triple H has been very supportive of him and the rest of the United Kingdom roster.
Dunne spoke with WWE and said he is "grateful" of the opportunity given to him and Tyler Bate to compete for the United Kingdom Championship at NXT TakeOver: Chicago.
"As far as the relationship with Triple H goes, he has been incredibly supportive and has given us a chance to make a name for ourselves," Dunne said. "That's one of the most overwhelming things about it. For myself and Tyler Bate to go out there and show what we can do in front of an audience that probably isn't that familiar with what we do, I'm grateful."
Dunne also commented on who he would like to face next. Dunne named Bate, Mark Andrews, Trent Seven and Wolfgang as opponents he would like to have matches with, but said he just wants to showcase his talents and the U.K. roster's as well on television as much as possible.
"It doesn't matter [who I face]," Dunne said. "Anyone and everyone. I want to get as much TV time as possible. I want to get the U.K. brand pushed as far along as possible. I'd love to get in the ring with Wolfgang or Mark Andrews or Trent Seven. I'd really love to have rematches with Tyler Bate. The more time I get in the ring with these people, the more time we have to secure our future, and the greater opportunity I have to prove myself as the future of WWE."
