In an interview with ESPN’s official website, WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament competitor Pete Dunne commented on a variety of topics, including his excitement at being part of the tournament which takes place this Saturday and Sunday at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, England.

“It’s special and brilliant and reflecting on it is great, but also it feels right. I feel like I should be here. I feel like all the people on that stage should be there. There’s more a sense of achievement to me, like, ‘OK, we’ve done it. Now let’s focus on it and have the best show possible.’ I was always an advocate for getting out of the country, going travelling and experiencing that stuff. It’s how I became the wrestler I have. Also, the life experience is invaluable. But now this U.K. Championship tournament changes everything. Now there’s something here to aim for, which we’ve never had before. Not only for the people in the tournament, but now everyone can see a pathway all the way through to Wrestlemania, even. It’s like an access point.”
