Pete Dunne is the WWE United Kingdom Champion but WWE is running a new WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament to find him a #1 contender. The winner of the tournament will get a chance to face Dunne for his title at the Royal Albert Hall on June 18th and there are some pretty impressive names competing for that opportunity.
It was revealed today by WWE that the first participants in the big upcoming WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament will be Zack Gibson, Joey Coffey, Jack Gallagher, Dave Mastiff, Kenny Williams, El Ligero, Joseph Conners, and Amir Jordan. Some of those guys signed WWE deals a while ago and have been working in the thriving UK pro wrestling scene until WWE made the call for them.
With WWE possibly announcing a television show in the United Kingdom soon enough they need some talent to fill that roster out and it looks like they’re off to a very good start.
Sir Mitch Says: With the long-delayed TV tapings for the revived World of Sport Wrestling promotion currently taking place, it looks like WWE is trying to accelerate their own long-delayed UK project!
