Pete Dunne recently sat down with ComicBook.com to discuss his wrestling career, including how his recent group – the Broserweights – started, their feud with The Undisputed Era, and new challenges that the duo has faced.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On how the Broserweights began:
So yeah, we’ve been lucky enough to work with each other fairly often back at the independents and on large events for NXT but always on the opposite side until maybe a week or two before the Dusty Classic started, where we found ourselves on the same team on a live event, and it just felt like it jelled and worked, So the idea was put forward to put us together. I don’t know if I was too thrilled about it at the time, but it’s definitely been a really fun experience since then. It’s been great to see how the audience has connected with us. Its sort of morphed into its own thing. Two completely unlikely characters coming together and, you know, it’s been fun. It’s exciting and it’s sort of refreshing my career.
On The Undisputed Era:
Yeah, so I’ve been in the ring with Undisputed Era many times over the past couple of years, So I’m expecting the same as ever. It always feels like a wall. You always feel terrible the day after and that makes really great entertainment right? But, I think that the stakes tonight are huge because like I said, rolling into WrestleMania season as a champion is important. It’s a big deal. So everything rides on tomorrow. I’m not ready for what me and Matt have built and what we’ve been rolling with to come to an end. And the Undisputed Era, they’re trying to get their belts back, but to me, changing the guard, you know, that’s how NXT has been. It’s been run by the Undisputed Era, so now we move forward and it’s time for new opportunities, new tag teams, and were the ones who are going to lead that.
On facing new challenges:
It’s time to take on a new challenge and I’ve been waiting for that since I lost the UK title, I’ve been in a bit of limbo and obviously in the, with the beginning of NXT going on TV every week and stuff like that, it’s about finding out where you fit into this and waiting for that next challenge. This has really just felt like the fresh start in my career that I’ve been waiting for. Obviously the Dusty Classic and now having the Tag Titles, and heading into WrestleMania season, it really feels like it’s coming together and in a way that I didn’t expect that I’m, I’m really grateful that we’ve been able to do the vignettes with the trophy and the plane and that kind of stuff. I’ll welcome them whenever these unusual opportunities arise.
