Tyler Bate added another accolade to his resume on Thursday when he captured the Heritage Cup on NXT UK.
Bate has already accomplished already there is to accomplish in NXT UK being a former NXT UK Champion and NXT UK Tag Team Champion as well. Does that mean he's NXT bound anytime soon?
Speaking to Gary Cassidy of Inside The Ropes, Bate discussed his future in WWE.
"It’s been something that’s been floating around in my mind, is like if and when might I want to go to the States but for me, my goals in wrestling are very simple, and it’s just to enjoy it and to do it my way, really. And I get both of those things in NXT UK. So I’m in no rush to go to NXT or go to main roster or anything. As far as I’m concerned, I’ve peaked, there is no progression to the States, I’m already winning. So for me, it’s just if and when I go to the States, it’s if I feel that my work in NXT UK is finished, but I feel like there’s still a lot of fun to be had here which is what keeps me here. I love the crew as well. The NXT UK crew is the UK indie guys that I came up in wrestling with. I have deep relationships with some of the people on the roster, so that’s something that I really appreciate about NXT UK," he said.
Bate has been part of the NXT brand in the past, competing in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and challenging for the NXT Tag Team Titles at a TakeOver event.
