In case you didn't know...

The heart of the matter
On a recent post on Twitter, former wrestling manager and promoter Jim Cornette replied to a question from one of his fans regarding the UK title match between Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate.
The match took place on the most recent episode of NXT, where the two UK-based wrestlers put on one of the best technical matches the WWE Universe has seen in 2017. The match ended with Pete Dunne retaining his title after successfully pinning the first WWE UK Champion Tyler Bate.
Cornette's reply to the question was extremely positive, as he stated that both men are way beyond their experience levels and mix modern style/WOS style well. He also suggested that both men have bright futures ahead of them.
There were mixed reactions from other fans, who found it quite rare to see Cornette praise someone, as many consider him to be a so-called 'old man that hates everything'.
As it stands, Pete Dunne and Tyler bate will continue to wow the NXT Universe for quite a while, with the two only being age 24 and 20 respectively. However, Pete Dunne recently debuted on RAW and defeated Enzo Amore, so who is to say what the possibilities are.
Jim Cornette's praise is hardly misplaced as the Bruiserweight and The Iron Master put up what could possibly one of the best matches the WWE have had in 2017. At their age, they will surely reach the top of the wrestling world and will continue to dazzle audiences for a long time.
