WWE has an insane amount of ability in the pool of talent they were able to acquire from the United Kingdom. But unfortunately, WWE hasn’t really featured their UK talent as much as some fans might like.
Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne had one of the best matches in North America this year at NXT TakeOver: Chicago and there’s plenty more where that came from.
Bryan Alvarez recently mentioned the lack of representation from the UK roster in WWE’s current product and explained things to put it into perspective.
“A month ago on NXT, I believe it was NXT they announced that the [United Kingdom] television show kicks off like next week. There was another one that said ‘coming soon’ — well guess what? Nobody came,” Alvarez said.
“So maybe someday they’re gonna do this UK television product but I don’t think they’re going to. I mean this all stems from ITV and WWE not wanting to be left out and signing a bunch of guys to keep them away from ITV and whatever else. They were all gun-hoe about it and now there’s not gonna be an ITV show and so they’re just sitting on everybody.”
“The [UK] guys aren’t being paid a lot. They’re low-level contracts. They’re allowed to take indie dates elsewhere like every now and then Pete Dunne goes and defends a title on this or that show and it’s just like this is the way it’s gonna be. They’re very, very low priority.”
If WWE could start using these amazing talents from the United Kingdom it wouldn’t be the worst idea they could come up with. Some of those guys have great ability to be breakout stars if given the right exposure. But whatever WWE plans on doing it would be awesome if they’d pull the trigger soon because we’re tired of waiting. One thing is for sure, these guys deserve to be way more than just low priority.
