Peter Thomas England (born 9 November 1993) is an English professional wrestler and promoter. He is signed to WWE under the ring name Pete Dunne, where he is the current and longest reigning WWE United Kingdom Champion in his first reign.[3] Dunne also competes on the independent circuit in Europe and occasionally the United States, most notably in Progress Wrestling, where he is a former Progress World Champion.

Dunne began training for a career in professional wrestling at the age of 12 in 2005 and made his professional debut in 2007. Since then, he has worked extensively across the United Kingdom for promotions such as Progress Wrestling, Revolution Pro Wrestling (RPW), Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW), Fight Club: Pro (FCP) and Attack! Pro Wrestling, a promotion he co-founded. In addition to the United Kingdom, Dunne has worked internationally in Germany with Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw), the United States with Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) and Japan with Michinoku Pro Wrestling.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Training and early career (2006–2011)[edit]

Dunne began training in 2006 at the age of 12,[6] originally under the tutelage of Steve "Psycho" Edwards at Phoenix Wrestling in Coventry, a short drive from his home city[3] of Birmingham. Dunne has said that his early training under Edwards was limited, providing him with only "the basics".[7] Dunne's first appearance as a wrestler was at the 2007 Holbrooks Festival in Coventry, where he first met and wrestled Mark Andrews.[7] He later trained for a short time under Max Angelus and began working on other small local shows, largely in community centres around Birmingham.

Dunne competed as the masked Tiger Kid until January 2010, when he began performing as Pete Dunne after losing a hair vs mask match to Helix at Riot Act Wrestling in Kent. He then began regularly performing in a tag team alongside his kayfabe brother, Damian Dunne.[8] He spent most of his early career working for as many small independent promotions as possible, as well as regularly practicing with Mark Andrews and other friends, training in a re-purposed boxing ring in a community centre in Cardiff during the school holidays.[7] Dunne began competing internationally and more regularly in 2011, competing for LDN Wrestling, travelling to Ireland for Dublin Championship Wrestling, Wales for Celtic Wrestling & Welsh Wrestling, and Scotland for PBW.[9]

Attack! Pro Wrestling (2011–2016)[edit]

In a move to increase the number opportunities available to their group of friends, Dunne and friend Jim Lee co-founded Attack! Pro Wrestling in 2011, arranging a weekend of shows in Pete's native city of Birmingham.[10] On the first weekend of shows in August 2011, Dunne wrestled in a four-man tournament dubbed the 'Elder Stein Invitational', in which he advanced to the final, before losing to Mark Andrews.[11] The promotion would later expand to run shows primarily in Cardiff and Bristol, with Dunne an ever-present performer, primarily as a face, and often taking on his best friend Mark.[12] Dunne later would become one of the promotion's primary heels, after unexpectedly turning on Mark at "Mandrews Goes To America" in January 2015; a show themed as a farewell event to Mark upon his signature of a contract with TNA Wrestling.[13][14] From mid-2015 to 2016, Dunne held the ATTACK! 24/7 Championship for an unprecedented 307 consecutive days, over which time he feuded with Eddie Dennis and Wild Boar simultaneously for the title.[15] He would eventually lose the belt to referee Shay Purser, which acted as the beginning of a lengthy feud with ATTACK's co-founder and ring announcer, Jim Lee.[16] Pete's spell as a performer in ATTACK! Pro Wrestling concluded on 20 November 2016, when he lost a five-vs-five elimination match against a team captained by Jim, with the stipulation that the losing team captain had to leave ATTACK.[17]

Michinoku Pro Wrestling (2013)[edit]

Dunne spent three months touring with Japanese promotion Michinoku Pro Wrestling in 2013, teaming with Jason Larusso to defeat Bad Boy (Daichi Sasaki and Manjimaru) in his debut match,[18] but losing to the Brahman Brothers the next night.[19] Dunne lost his next two matches on the tour, before defeating Ayumu Gunji in his first singles match in Japan.[20] Dunne's final match on the tour took place on 5 May, when he and Larusso were defeated by Yapper Man #1 and Yapper Man #2.[21]

Revolution Pro Wrestling (2014, 2016–2017)[edit]

Dunne made his debut for Revolution Pro Wrestling on 10 May 2014, teaming with F.S.U (Mark Andrews and Eddie Dennis) to take on The Revolutionists (Sha Samuels, Josh Bodom and Terry Frazier) in a losing effort.[22] Dunne's next match was in January 2016 at Live At The Cockpit 5, first defeating El Ligero, and then Morgan Webster to win the RPW British Cruiserweight Championship.[23] Dunne held the Championship until July, successfully defending it against Webster,[24] Sonjay Dutt,[25] ACH,[26] Mike Bailey[27] and Matt Cross[28] before dropping the championship to Will Ospreay at Summer Sizzler.[29] Dunne also competed at Global Wars UK, losing to Yuji Nagata on night one[30] and Tomohiro Ishii on night two.[31] On 21 January 2017, Dunne lost to NJPW's Yoshi-Hashi.[32]

Progress Wrestling (2014, 2016–present)[edit]

Dunne debuted in Progress at Chapter 13 on 18 May 2014, defeating Robbie X.[33] Four months later he returned to Progress, losing to Morgan Webster.[34] Dunne was absent from Progress for 19 months after this, returning at Chapter 28 in April 2016, teaming with Damian Dunne to defeat Trent Seven and Tyler Bate.[35] At Chapter 29, Dunne was involved in a qualifying match for WWE's Cruiserweight Classic tournament, losing to Jack Gallagher.[36] At Chapter 30, Dunne competed in the first round of the Super Strong Style 16 Tournament, but was eliminated in the first round by Mark Haskins.[37] At Chapter 33, Dunne turned on longtime tag team partner and kayfabe brother Damian Dunne, aligning himself with Trent Seven as British Strong Style.[38] Dunne and Seven defeated The London Riots (James Davis and Rob Lynch) at Chapter 36 to win the Progress Tag Team Championship.[39]

At Chapter 39, by virtue of retaining their championships in a rematch against the London Riots earlier in the night, Dunne and Seven were entered in a 7-man elimination match for the vacant Progress World Championship. Dunne pinned Jimmy Havoc to become the new Progress World Champion after Tyler Bate came down to the ring and attacked Havoc, aligning himself with Seven and Dunne.[40] At Chapter 40, Dunne made his first successful defence of the championship, defeating Zack Sabre Jr.[41] On 16 December, Progress management forced Dunne and Seven to vacate the Progress Tag Team Championship after Dunne attempted to give his half of the shield to Bate. At Chapter 41, British Strong Style once again left with all of the gold in Progress after Seven and Bate defeated the LDRS Of The New School (Marty Scurll and Zack Sabre Jr.) and The London Riots to win the Progress Tag Team Championships and Dunne defeated Fabian Aichner to retain the Progress World Championship.[42] Dunne lost by disqualification to Jimmy Havoc at Chapter 43, but the championship did not change hands.[43] At Chapter 44, Dunne, Seven and Bate were defeated by Havoc, Mark Haskins, and Morgan Webster in a six-man tag team match.[44] At Chapter 45, Dunne defeated Havoc in a no-disqualification match for his fourth successful defence.[45] At Chapter 46, he successfully defended the Championship against Mark Andrews.[46] Dunne defended the Championship twice in Orlando, Florida during WrestleMania weekend, defeating Mark Haskins on 31 March[47] and ACH on 1 April.[48] At Chapter 47, Dunne, Seven and Bate put all of their championships on the line against Ringkampf (Axel Dieter Jr, Timothy Thatcher, and Walter), in a six-man tag team match, successfully retaining all of them.[49] At Chapter 48, Dunne retained the title against both Andrews and Haskins in a triple threat match. He lost the title to Travis Banks on 10 September.[50] At Chapter 60, Dunne successfully defended his WWE United Kingdom Championship against Jack Gallagher.[51]

In May 2018, Dunne entered the Super Strong Style 16, defeating Doug Williams in the first round but losing by disqualification against Zack Gibson in the second round after hitting Gibson with a steel chair.[52] The same weekend, Christian Michael Jakobi, the CEO of wXw, gave him an challenge against current wXw Unified World Wrestling Champion, Ilja Dragunov, who he'd call him the "Best Independent Wrestler in Europe". At Chapter 69: Be Here Now, he accepted the challenge, and the match is scheduled to take place at "Hello Wembley", at the Wembley Arena.

Chikara (2014–2017)[edit]

Dunne made his debut for Chikara in September 2014, when he, Damian Dunne and Mark Andrews, billed collectively as "Team UK", took part in the 2014 King of Trios, making it to the quarterfinals, before losing to The Devastation Corporation (Blaster McMassive, Flex Rumblecrunch and Max Smashmaster).[53] A year later, Dunne returned for the 2015 King of Trios; this time he, Andrews and Morgan Webster, "Team Attack!", were eliminated in their first round match by United Nations (Juan Francisco de Coronado, Mr. Azerbaijan and The Proletariat Boar of Moldova).[54]

Dunne returned to Chikara on 1 September 2017, when he, Trent Seven, and Tyler Bate, billed collectively as "House Strong Style", entered the 2017 King of Trios, defeating House Whitewolf (A-Kid, Adam Chase, and Zayas) in their first round match.[55] Over the next two days, House Strong Style defeated House Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield, Mark Angelosetti, and Simon Grimm) in the quarterfinals,[56] House Rot (Frightmare, Hallowicked and Kobald) via forfeit in the semifinals and House Sendai Girls (Cassandra Miyagi, Dash Chisako, and Meiko Satomura) in the finals to win the 2017 King of Trios.[57]

WWE (2016–present)[edit]

On 15 December 2016 it was revealed that Dunne would be one of 16 men competing in the two-night WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament to crown the first ever WWE United Kingdom Champion on 14 and 15 January 2017. Dunne defeated Roy Johnson in the first round, advancing to the quarter finals and eventually the semi-finals where he defeated Sam Gradwell and Mark Andrews respectively to advance to the finals, where he lost to Tyler Bate.[58][59] Dunne then signed a contract with WWE, which allowed him to continue taking independent bookings with some restrictions.[60] He then became a part of NXT, making his debut on 22 February 2017 in a winning effort against Mark Andrews; he then started to appear on NXT. On 4 April, Dunne, and others who participated in the tournament, appeared on 205 Live to promote upcoming UK live shows.[61] On 7 May, Dunne defeated Trent Seven at a live event to become the new number one contender for the United Kingdom Championship.[62] Dunne then went on to defeat Bate at NXT TakeOver: Chicago to win the title for the first time in a highly-acclaimed match, which was later named Match of the Year at the NXT Year-End Awards.[63][64]

Dunne made his main roster debut during a one-off appearance on the 6 November episode of Raw in Manchester, England, where he defeated WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore in a non-title champion versus champion match.[65] He then kept on defending his title on NXT, first against Bate on December 20, and then against Roderick Strong on February 14, 2018.[66] Dunne turned face when he and Strong subsequently teamed up, starting on March 28 for the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, defeating Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan in the first round and Alexander Wolfe and Eric Young of SAnitY in the semi-finals.[67][67] They faced The Authors of Pain in the finals on March 4; however, the match ended in a no contest when Kyle O'Reilly and Adam Cole of The Undisputed Era attacked both teams.[68] As the result, all three teams faced each other in a triple threat tag team match at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, which acted as the final match of the tournament while The Undisputed Era's NXT Tag Team Championship was also on the line.[69] At the event, Strong turned on Dunne and attacked him, giving the victory to The Undisputed Era and aligning himself with the stable.[70] This would mark the beginning of a feud between Dunne and The Undisputed Era, starting with a singles match on the May 2 episode of NXT, in which he defeated Strong by disqualification after being attacked by Cole and O'Reilly.[71]

At the United Kingdom Championship Tournament event, Dunne teamed up with Bate and Trent Seven as British Strong Style on the first night (marking the first time they performed as their stable on WWE) to defeat The Undisputed Era, and on the second night, retained his title against United Kingdom Championship Tournament winner Zack Gibson.[72][73] On the 22 August episode of NXT (which also served as the pre-show of NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4), Dunne once again retained his championship against Gibson; in parallel, he became the longest-reigning champion in WWE at (then) 456 days following Brock Lesnar's loss of the WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam.[74][75][76] On the August 29 episode of NXT, Dunne teamed up with NXT North American Champion Ricochet against The Undisputed Era, losing due to a miscommunication.[77] As both blamed the other for their loss, the two had a match for both titles on the September 19 episode of NXT, marking the first time a WWE United Kingdom Champion faced a NXT North American Champion. The match ended in a no contest after The Undisputed Era attacked both men.[78][79]

Professional wrestling style and persona[edit]

Dunne is known by his nickname "The Bruiserweight" in reference to his style mostly consisting of brawling, stiff strikes and submission grappling, often combined with bending his opponents fingers. His finishing maneuver is a Pumphandle reverse STO called the Bitter End.[80]

Personal life[edit]

Dunne is a vegan because of ethical reasons.[81] He states that he "loves animals" and turned to the diet after watching the documentary Cowspiracy.[82]

Dunne, Mark Andrews and Eddie Dennis are co-founders of Defend Indy Wrestling, a clothing line designed specifically for independent wrestling fans. Inspired by the "DEFEND Pop Punk" message propagated by American band Man Overboard, the trio created the brand in 2011, producing T-shirts, hoodies, and other accessories.[83]

Other media[edit]

Dunne made his video game debut in WWE 2K19.[citation needed]
