In WWE, Pete Dunne once won the WWE United Kingdom Championship, of which he is the longest-serving keeper in the history of the title with a kingdom that lasted 685 days (from 20 May 2017 to 5 April 2019), once the NXT Tag Team Championship with Matt Riddle and the fifth edition of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic in 2020 (always with Matt Riddle).
Dunne began training for a career in professional wrestling at the age of 12 in 2005 and made his professional debut in 2007. He has worked extensively across the United Kingdom for promotions such as Progress Wrestling, Revolution Pro Wrestling (RPW), Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW), Fight Club: Pro (FCP), and Attack!
Pro Wrestling, having co-founded the latter. During a recent interview with Newsweek.com, he discussed his tag team with Matt Riddle: “The main challenge is being put into a tag team, where you’ve never done any tag team stuff before, even coming up with new moves and ideas.
Also a challenging part is those vignettes. I’ve never been known for my talking, so it’s been exciting to be challenged in both of those areas. Having said that, it’s also come together kinda easily. As soon as we had that first tag team wrestling match, for us and the overall opinion seems to be, it felt like we were teaming for a long time.
The benefit of being on television is not just the matches we put together, not just the Takeovers the championship match or the Dusty Classic stuff, but to have those vignettes go out to show a different side of yourself, especially for myself."
