In an interview with Sky Sports, WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne commented on his goals in the wrestling business, defending the WWE United Kingdom Championship in other promotions and more.

Highlights of the interview are below:

On defending the WWE United Kingdom Championship in other promotions around the world: “It’s best for WWE, it’s not an attempt to destroy the independent scene, it’s a great feeder system for WWE. Opportunities like this aren’t just great for us, they’re great for everyone, it’s only natural to see more of this in the future.”

On the pressures he had for his match against Tyler Bate at NXT Takeover Chicago: “At Takeover, we felt a lot of pressure to show what the UK scene is capable of. We assumed we were unknown, went to kill it and our goal was to be so good it increases the pressure for a UK show. We want it, fans want it and we feel we helped with that.”

On his goals in the wrestling business: “I’m taking it every day as it comes, but I want to build a real UK scene. I’ll continue to develop and have storylines in PROGRESS Wrestling and others like Insane Championship Wrestling, but of course, eventually I’d like to be a WWE main roster talent, be on NXT, get to a WrestleMania and compete for the World Titles while representing the UK scene.”
