In an interview with WWE’s official website, WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament competitor Pete Dunne commented on a variety of topics, including the meaning of his “Bruiserweight” nickname.
“It was a gradual transition. Even this time last year, I hadn’t discovered the ‘Bruiserweight’ thing yet. Over the last year, I really found my way with it and really learned to piece the puzzle together. It was like one step at a time, adding a different thing to make me look unique or a different move that no one else does. The progression – as you can imagine – from a 12-year-old to a 23-year-old is drastic. But even from this time last year and the year before that and the year before that, every year was a drastic change.”
