From: Dudley, England
Signature Move: Tyler Driver '97
Your typical 20-year-old’s daily routine probably consists of school, hanging with friends and the occasional game of FIFA, but Tyler Bate is no typical 20-year-old. With five-plus years’ experience in promotions like Fight Club Pro, PROGRESS and Chikara, this grappler from Dudley, England, spent his formative years inside the ring inspired by one of the more eclectic groups you’ll ever hear — Johnny Saint, Steve Grey and The Big Red Monster, Kane.
Bate honed his craft while earning his daily quid as a forklift operator to pay the bills. (His one concession to teenage hobbies? He plays drums — strictly classic rock.) A technically sound wrestler who prefers things fair but isn’t afraid to get down and dirty, Bate made history by winning the inaugural WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament in January 2017. After prevailing in four matches over two nights, Bate was rewarded with the WWE United Kingdom Championship, making him the youngest single’s titleholder in WWE history.
