– WWE Title Holder Says Comments Of WWE Trying To Kill Indys Are Absurd
During a recent interview with Digital Spy, WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne talked about the comments of WWE trying to kill Indys, his dream match & more. Below is what he said:
On if he wants to be the first British WWE Champion:
“I wanted to work for WWE once and I wanted to make a living off of wrestling. They were my goals and I managed to achieve all of that by the age of 22, which then opened a whole new set of goals going forward. Honestly, it all feels like a bonus, but I am still goal orientated and I have things in mind.
I’d love to do WrestleMania– if it was possible I’d love to defend the UK Title at WrestleMania, and who knows – in a few years’ time, whether I’m the first British WWE Champion, or maybe the second or third, that’s definitely a goal that I’d like to achieve.”
On his dream match:
“I’d have to go with William Regal for that one. He was a huge factor in me getting hired in the first place and being put in the position I have been, so I’m eternally grateful for that.
And obviously the mini-onscreen rivalry we’ve had has been loads of fun. Unfortunately I don’t think it can ever happen, but if by a chance of miracle one day we could get in the ring, that’d be amazing for me.”
On comments of WWE trying kill the Indys:
“It’s infuriating for people to claim that…look at it: you’ve got girls from the Mae Young Classic who are still doing independents, you’ve got a WWE title that can be seen on independent shows, there’s multiple WWE talents on these UK independent shows.
To hear things like, ‘WWE is trying to kill the independents’ or whatever, that’s the opposite of what seems to be happening, so I think those comments are completely absurd.”
