Professional wrestling legend and former four times WWE European champion William Regal who is also a former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion recently talked about the Blackpool Combat Club and said that he was hoping to do something with the Faction.
Butch was introduced to the audience of WWE back in 2016 through the inaugural NXT UK Championship tournament. Before coming to WWE, he worked in many other professional wrestling promotions on the independent circuit. He had been pretty impressive throughout his professional wrestling career.
William Regal Is Hopeful About The Future Of Blackpool Combat Club
He impressed the WWE management through the NXT UK Championship tournament in 2016. He was the finalist of the tournament before losing it to Tyler Bate. He defeated Tyler Bate after 4 months to capture the NXT UK Championship and had an impressive six hundred and eighty five days of reign. Later he dropped the title do Walter.
Dunne became one of the most familiar faces of the NXT and he became quite famous among the NXT fans as well. He was quite successful in Tag Team wrestling as well as he teamed up with Matt Riddle to win the NXT Tag Team Championship one-time and also the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team classic 2020.
Recently he made his main roster debut and he has formed alliance with Sheamus and Ridge Holland. WWE changed his ring name from Pete Dunne to Butch. It seemed like WWE would organize a 6 man tag team match for WrestleMania 38 between the team of Sheamus and the New Day but it does not seem like it would be happening anymore since Big E is still out with a neck injury. We hope Dunne would have an amazing career in WWE.
William Regal who is also a former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion recently spoke to Manchester Evening News where he talked about the Blackpool Combat Club and said that he was hoping to do something with the Faction. He said;
“I’m staying out of wrestling except for what I’m doing. I’ve heard rumors that we’re [AEW] coming to England but I have no idea. Anybody who were at the Blackpool NXT UK shows know how special those shows were and the atmosphere… I’ve never felt an atmosphere like it.
“It was like nothing I’ve ever felt because of the acoustics of the Empress Ballroom, the chanting and everything else. It would be nice to go back with the Blackpool Combat Club or maybe we could do Bloomfield Road, I don’t know, why not?”
