#13 Pete Dunne (United Kingdom Champion)

Pete Dunne UK division
Hopefully
we see more from the Bruiserweight soon.

Ring work: Top notch. If you aren't watching his matches, you're missing a lot.

Character work: He plays the "Bruiserweight" gimmick fantastically. Pete Dunne isn't a big guy, but he comes across as a gritty street fighter that will tear his opponents limb from limb.

Mic work: Dunne's weakest asset, none of his promos have been particularly memorable. He's not the best talker, but he also hasn't had many opportunities. Perhaps with the launch of the UK division, we'll see more from him.

Prospects: This is ultimately why Pete Dunne is ranked so low. After defeating Zack Gibson twice, he doesn't appear to have any major rivalries in store for his title. When the UK division launches, that should change, but the situation is so murky right now that it's unclear where the UK title is going.

Pete Dunne is currently the longest reigning champion in WWE, having won his title at TakeOver: Chicago in May of last year. He's become a proven commodity and is the right choice to get the UK division off the ground. Let's hope we see much more from him in the next few months!

That's not to say Pete Dunne won't be in an exciting angle over the next few months, either. If you've been keeping up with NXT, you know where he's headed. His title likely won't be involved, however.
