WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate vs. Pete Dunne
Keep calm, because this rematch is bound to be anything but.
WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne provided the WWE Universe with an absolute classic earlier this year to crown the first WWE United Kingdom Champion on WWE Network. Now, following Dunne’s victory over Trent Seven in No. 1 Contender’s Match and Bate defending his titel against Mark Andrews, both in Norwich, England, the two Superstars will throw down yet again, this time at NXT TakeOver: Chicago.
Bate and Dunne became instant impact players in their first meeting in January. The two had severe bad blood heading into the inaugural WWE United Kingdom Championship Match as the always-sinister Dunne blindsided Bate before their final-round contest began.
However, The Bruiserweight’s plan wound up being nullified by an unbelievably gutsy performance by Bate, who became the inaugural WWE U.K. Champion after a match that could have swung in either competitor’s direction.
Will Bate keep the momentum rolling as the WWE United Kingdom Champion and defeat Dunne yet again? Or, will the ultra-aggressive Bruiserweight break through and break Bate en route to capturing the title?
