Pete Dunne and Zack Gibson to throw down for the United Kingdom Championship
WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne is the longest-reigning champion in WWE, but that distinction could come to an end when The BruiserWeight faces the familiar yet daunting challenge of “Liverpool’s No. 1” Zack Gibson tonight on WWE NXT.
Dunne and Gibson battled at the NXT U.K. Championship in London earlier this summer in a hard-hitting contest that saw Dunne prevail against the 2018 WWE U.K. Championship Tournament winner. The gritty Gibson will get another opportunity to dethrone The BruiserWeight, however, as Dunne and Gibson will close out an amazing SummerSlam Week in Brooklyn when they collide one-on-one.
Will Gibson amend his loss from Royal Albert Hall and become the third U.K Champion in WWE history? Or will Dunne, who appears to have set his sights on Ricochet’s newly captured NXT North American Championship, etch another stellar defense into his already impressive reign? Find out tonight on NXT when these British bruisers square off for the top crown in the NXT UK brand!
