19. WWE UK Champion Reveals On Whose Level He Wants To Reach & His Dream Match

During a recent appearance on the “Card Subject To Change” podcast, current WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunn discussed his UK Title match at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, working with William Regal, his dream opponent & more. Below are the highlights:

On what’s like to work with William Regal:
“It’s brilliant. I have him to thank for getting me here in the first place. I kept getting missed calls from a number that I didn’t recognize, and the third time I realized it said Stamford, Connecticut. So I answer and it was Regal, completely out of the blue and he said he was in England, and wanted to come and watch me wrestle on that show in Mansfield. So instantly, my motivation went through the roof. So I met him there, he watched my match and he really liked it. He set me up a tryout in November. And here we are now.”

On his UK Title match at NXT TakeOver: Chicago:
“It was unbelievable really. When we were in there we didn’t realize what we’d just done. We felt like it went well but it was only afterwards when they rushed me straight off to the media and I was on the phone to ESPN, and it was only just starting to resonate with me how well it went.”

On who his dream opponent is:
“The big one for me is Brock Lesnar. I like that you believe in him, because that is him. I try to carry myself that way and I look to someday reach that level. I think it would be a match people wouldn’t expect but it’s one I’d love to have. It’d be a good fight.”
