UK Wrestlers Praise The Bruiserweight
Dunne’s incredible title reign certainly did a lot for the NXT UK division and British wrestling in general and plenty of wrestlers reacted to Dunne’s run coming to an end.
Regardless of the result, it should not be understated just how important @PeteDunneYxB and his reign has been. Someone who led a locker room, helped build a brand and opened a lot of doors for many of us. #NXTTakeOver

Pete Dunne did so much for that belt and so much selflessly with that belt for the British Wrestling scene. The best. Thank you.
