Before their days in NXT UK, Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate, and Trent Seven were a group known as British Strong Style on the European indie circuit. While the three have shared the ring in WWE, their paths haven’t really aligned, but the massive unrest in the United States have inspired the trio to use their powers for good. Yesterday, the team announced a reprint of their original BSS t-shirt with all the profits going towards Black Lives Matter. 20 hours later, Pete Dunne took to Twitter to announce an impressive sellout.
You purchased 2000 shirts in under 24 hours
Yet to do the calculations properly but that should clear a £20,000 donation
Gonna cap it there to make sure we can actually handle that many orders in one go

The sale is now over, but only because the boys want to make sure they can produce and ship 2000 in a reasonable timeframe. In total, the team raised $25,000 for charities supporting the protests, an impressive feat for a trio of wrestlers currently without a ring to wrestle in. When we next see Pete and his pals on WWE TV, I know I’ll be clapping a lot harder than normal.
