Pete Dunne def. Arturo Ruas
The gritty, hard-hitting in-ring action that makes NXT the gold standard in sports-entertainment was on full display as former WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne fought skilled martial artist Arturo Ruas.
Despite Ruas’ ferocious striking ability and impeccable technique on the mat, the Brazilian Superstar was no match for Birmingham’s BruiserWeight. After doling out a steady diet of suplexes and joint manipulation, complemented by an X-Plex, Dunne locked Ruas in a triangle hold and forced the submission by splaying Ruas’ fingers.
