Yeah but after such a long reign as champion whats left for him to do there? i can't really imagine him drifting to the midcard on NXT UK while new guys feud over the title, he's far too good for that. I think its best he just leaves and hopefully moves on to bigger things.

I know we all worry about how he'll be used on the main roster but you can't deny its time for him to move on, i just can't see Dunne on NXT UK not as the champion and just in some midcard feud with Eddie Dennis or someone, it would feel like a demotion, whereas getting called up at least would feel like a promotion and he's advanced to a bigger stage.

Re: Pete Dunne Rumored for Main WWE Roster Call-Up

What I want: For him to stay in NXT UK and have fantastic matches against Zack Gibson and Jordan Devlin again. Or if he goes to the lower roster (Raw/SD), at least goes against Ricochet and Black like he did on the UK independent scene. At least stay with "Progress" for a while.

What will probably happen: A) Join main roster as one of those dirty foreign heel types and jobs to Reigns, Rollins 'cos 'murica. B) Becomes Carmella's valet.

Surely they would put him on Smackdown.

Bryan vs. Dunne.

Re: Pete Dunne Rumored for Main WWE Roster Call-Up

It seems to me that the general response here is that there's a lot of questions surrounding where Dunne ends up and what he ends up doing. I don't feel like there's a place for him on RAW because of how bloated and chaotic it already is at the best of times. I truly think the best place for him is SmackDown.

I think after having had such a long reign as United Kingdom champion, he has to take a hit. You probably have to portray him as a fighting underdog for a while. Yes, let's not forget that the talent on NXT and NXTUK is amazing, but surely I'm not the only one to have noticed that, with the influx of NXT talent to the main roster, they're making the usual suspects who have been on RAW and SmackDown for years look like dummies?

You have to make sure to show people there's a reason to be on the main roster.

There's an obvious structure to matches on RAW and it's sometimes painfully obvious to see. SmackDown can be the same, but SmackDown does and always has focused on story-telling over the past 5 years at the very least.

You can tell a fantastic story about Pete Dunne honing his craft around the world, coming to "the big leagues", dominating his platform, tipping his hat to Walter after a fantastic match, but not being ashamed to admit that his recent losses since his call-up (for the sake of debate) have humbled him. He can have fantastic matches with better-matched talent on SmackDown and you can literally drag it out as long as you want.

Not only are you treated to a series of ridiculously good, fast-paced and hard-hitting matches with the likes of Bryan, Nakamura, Styles and Joe, just to name a few, but you also face the possibility of seeing even more matches moved over with him during the Superstar Shakeup, and what with the WWE's boner for "first ever" things, perhaps a little biased on my part being from England, we may even see the first ever British world champion.

One thing is for sure, it's an exciting time to be a fan of WWE, so long as you can look at certain things with slightly tinted specs and see past the cringey bollocks.

Re: Pete Dunne Rumored for Main WWE Roster Call-Up

Pete Dunne is a great worker but I never thought he'd get called up to the main roster: he's a small, British and not a particularly good character/promo; there's nothing about him Vince would like. But who knows these days, Mustafa Ali got a push and not as an anti-American heel...

Pete vs Bryan is a certified dream match but the chance we see this as a ppv match and not a SDL throwaway like Cien/Mysterio is pretty low.

There's so many good opponents for him on the roster and somehow, some way, they will make it suck

RIP Dunne.

Someone else I wont be watching now they are on the main roster. It's why I hardly watch Raw and Smackdown, unfortunately I still got watch them fuck him up on PPV's now.
