Pete Dunne Rumored for Main WWE Roster Call-Up

Quote:
– During the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio, the Observer’s Dave Meltzer stated there’s a rumor he’s head that former NXT UK champion Pete Dunne could be getting a main roster call-up from NXT. However, he’s not certain if it will actually happen. The next WWE Superstar Shakeup is set for next week, so if there’s anything to the rumor, we might find out soon.

Pete Dunne recently lost his NXT UK Championship to WALTER at NXT TakeOver: New York last week. Dunne held the belt for 685 days. That could be a sign he might be bound for the main roster soon.

If this is true then I'm all for it but I'm hoping that he goes to SmackDown.

It seems like most call-ups go straight to RAW and the show is so bloated.

There are great matches waiting for him on the blue brand.

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

I mean after a 700+ day reign as champion, there's not much left to do in NXT UK anymore I think. And him coming to the main NXT and being a big deal there would be cool.

Him on the MR, I'm more cautious about given how they've handled the other call-ups recently.

Although admittedly if he showed up and challenged Finn or Joe to a IC or US title match/feud, I'd probably mark out.

I second that notion.

Part of me wishes that Nakamura was still a heel United States champion.

A strong-style clash between a heel Nakamura and face Dunne could be great.

I want him vs Bryan. Given the proper time, it would be EPIC.

Probably to 205Live.

Pete is going to struggle on the main roster. NXT doesn't prepare wrestlers for 4 minute television matches, and Pete is even a worse case as he was more a special attraction as champion and only wrestled in big matches/main events with a lot of time for them.

I could see him booked as Crash Holly on the main roster. The little guy who thinks he's a big guy comedy character.

I'd rather see him stop off feud with Gargano in mainline NXT, and then get his call-up in August after Summerslam.

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

Well that's the end of him. Dunne actually had an aura and a special attraction kind of status. Obviously that can't be maintained on the main roster but watching him go from feeling special to being another Andrade is gonna be tough

He'll probably have his name shortened to Pete too

Dunne vs Joe for the US title would be amazing.
