Metro UK recently interviewed NXT Superstar and UK champion Pete Dunne. Below are some highlights.

Pete Dunne on NXT having event in Blackpool:Dunen on his favorite opponent: “On our brand, my standard is always Tyler. It might be obvious, but the performances he put in were unreal in Liverpool recently and he was a step above everyone else. It’s something for everyone else to chase and that’s a good thing. NXT is built on competition and the feel of the matches are competitive, but in the back it’s the same. I see Tyler pull out a great performance and it really makes me want to get in the ring. In the whole of WWE, it’s got to be AJ Styles. He’s absolutely been killing it for so many years, and now he’s in a top spot and rightfully so. I’d love to get in the ring with him some day.”

Dunne on how he’d like to be in Royal Rumble in 2019: “I’d love to be in it but it’s really not my focal point. Like getting to appear on Raw, if I get the call then I’ll be ecstatic about it, but it’s not something I let get into my head before. From my side, my focus is on building the NXT UK foundation and I want it to hold up. In ten years time I want people to say that every single title match I had holds up, and they’re all top quality. Bit by bit I want to build up my name and my career and create a legacy of title matches to look back on. But if I get the call, that’s great, but I’m patient and there’s no rush.”
