I'm glad he's been brought over to work NXT, but he needs a slight gimmick change from the UK Championship tournament.

Whilst there is much room for improvement, he's still better to watch than plenty who have got NXT airtime in the past.

I hope he's put in a fued with someone who was already on the roster, so not another Brit.

I'd say his look is fine as he is unique in look and style. He's got a very big upside, however i'm not sure if he's got something that will hook the American audience at the moment, especially in a WWE PG type of show.

Great outing for him last week. If he continues to be booked like that he could be a future NXT champion a year or so down the line once he's paid his dues.

Was surprisingly shocked at how over he was. He was the heel but the live crowd loved him.

He's already earning himself something of a little niche following. Too early for them to make a shirt for him to sell? LOL

He doesn't need that much seasoning as he's 24 and been about a while already. He's unique that's for sure but time will tell what will become of him, Regal certainly is a big fan of his though.

Pete Dunne was on the panel last night on the Takeover kick off show

He came across really well and explained that his number 1 aim was to make UK wrestling relevant and the UK division one of the cornerstones of NXT

He said he expects to have some more match of the year candidates (after claiming the award for MOTY with Tyler Bate) and then said he would fight anyone and even name dropped Brock Lesnar into that.

Samoa Joe was on the panel and he seemed really impressed with Dunne - i think he needs to feature a little bit more prominently on NXT tv before he makes the change to the main roster. His wrestling style is so unique that he is bound to get over - it will all come down to how he is booked as seems to be the case with most people on the main roster

Dunne is getting better and better with every match

He’s getting more and more over with the crowd and is getting a lot more TV (Network in this case) time

He is still the UK champ and has also partnered with Strong to replace Moustache Mountain in the Dusty Classic

He has one of the most unique styles I’ve ever seen - he’s phenomenal

Love this guy, like HH said unique style and he comes across as genuinely tough in the ring. His bruiserweight gimmick is cool as well.

Definitely the top talent to come out of the UK tournament.

Its crazy how good he is getting

I hope he can transition onto the main roster - he would be PERFECT for 205 Live. He has a unique style, hes believable in terms of toughness given his brutal moveset, he can talk, the fans get behind him and he would easily play a heel or face but currently seems to have a dont trust anyone (similar to stone cold) gimmick.

Love the bloke

Still can't take to him......

Don't like his look with his girlie hair, teenage girl spotty complextion or rip off Daniel Bryan ring attire.

He's an alright wrestler but he's nothing more than a Hs hype job.

His build won't get him far as he doesn't look intimdating. There is a reason he's yet to be put on a show that matters.

If he was that good E would have made more of an effort for a weekly UK NXT after the Blackpool show.

Just an opinion of course. Don't see the point of him trying to eat the title too. On the shoulder or around the waist should be the only way to do it.

Exception to Big Show when he used to wear the hardcore title around his bicep LOL

I disagree I think he does look intimidating, his look is that of a rough pub brawler. His small size doesn’t matter as WWE is packed with smaller wrestlers these days, so much so it’s now the norm to only be around the 200lb mark.

Must admit while he’s a great fit for NXT it’s difficult to see where he would slot in on the main roster aside from maybe 205 Live.
