Last summer, the closure of "NXT UK" and its subsequent rebranding as "NXT Europe" led to the release of several talents, including Trent Seven. Since then, Seven has embarked on a journey that has taken him to various promotions worldwide, such as AEW and ROH.
However, parting ways with WWE has been bittersweet for Seven, as he misses his long-time British Strong Style partners, Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate, who are continuing their journeys within the company. While Dunne has made his presence known on "Smackdown" as Butch of the Brawling Brutes and Bate vies for the North American Championship at NXT Battleground, Seven finds himself navigating the independent scene alone.
In an appearance on "Touching Grass," Seven expressed that the most challenging aspect of returning to the Indies is not having his partners by his side. However, he takes immense pride in their accomplishments, particularly highlighting the bright future he sees for Dunne, who continues to impress those in influential positions.
Triple H Recognizes Pete Dunne's Exceptional Talent
According to the former NXT Tag Team Champion, Dunne's talent has been noticed, especially by Triple H. Seven fondly recalled sitting at the gorilla position, witnessing Triple H and Shawn Michaels captivated by Dunne's performances and genuinely excited about what they saw.
Seven emphasized Dunne's prowess, describing him as a "badass" and underscoring Triple H's recognition of his exceptional abilities. Dunne's dedication to his craft is evident in every aspect of his work, from his moves, expressions, and even how he walks to the corner.
Seven commended Dunne's unwavering commitment and described him as the epitome of a hyper-focused professional performer. The current status of WWE's developmental system in the United Kingdom remains to be determined, leaving room for the possibility of Seven's return when operations resume.
Until then, Seven continues to support his "Big Strong Bois" as an ardent fan, cheering them on from the sidelines. While his departure from WWE may have brought new challenges, Seven's admiration for his former teammates and his belief in their immense talent remain steadfast.
As he navigates the independent circuit, Seven's experiences and encounters will undoubtedly shape his future, and fans eagerly await the next chapter in his wrestling journey.
