During last nights WWE NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool main event between Pete Dunne and Joe Coffey, the UK Champion paid tribute to the NXT General Manager.
Pete Dunne paid a subtle tribute to William Regal with his ring gear, wearing similar colors and design to what the British legend used to wear.
Not sure if anyone has noticed this yet, but @PeteDunneYxB also told me that his gear last night was a tribute to @RealKingRegal. Dunne also stressed that none of NXT UK would be remotely possible without Regal – last night must have made him so proud. #NXTUKTakeOver pic.twitter.com/knIz6v3FGZ
