7. Teenage Wrestler Becomes 1st Ever WWE United Kingdom Champion
19 Year old Tyler Bate was crowned the first ever WWE United Kingdom Champion in the WWE UK Championship tournament. Below is what WWE posted regarding this:
Pete Dunne and his former pupil Tyler Bate clashed in the Finals of the inaugural event. Dunne certainly seemed to have the upper hand, with his attack at the end of Bate’s Semifinals match causing the mustached 19-year-old to have a partially separated AC joint as he headed into this last match.
However, Bate fought valiantly as he and Dunne had an absolute thriller that completely captivated the WWE Universe. “The Bruiserweight” continuously attempted to wear down Bate, but the 19-year old would simply not quit and finally broke through, beating Dunne with the Tyler Driver 97 to become the first WWE United Kingdom Champion in history.
