We noted earlier here on Wrestling News World that after WWE’s UK championship tournament went off the air, Pete Dunne attacked his quarter-finals opponent, Sam Gradwell.
WWE ran the following kayfabe post on dot com after the attack:
“BLACKPOOL, England – The WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament closed in chaotic fashion, as Pete Dunne sucker punched his Part 2 opponent, Sam Gradwell, causing a ruckus on the stage in front of all of Part 1’s winners.
In a post-show press conference with Triple H and William Regal, Triple H announced that they'll discuss the situation and talk with Gradwell before making any kind of decision about Dunne's actions. Triple H commented that the idea of changing the tournament at this point is not ideal, but they would see what happens after their review. Triple H and Regal also confronted Dunne about his actions.
“I beat people, I hurt people, I own the ring,” Dunne said earlier during the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament. How will Dunne’s actions affect his standing in the Quarterfinals of the competition?
