Pete Dunne Out; Tyler Bate in for Battle of the Nations

August 15, 2017


We received word late on Monday 14th August from WWE management that they now need Pete Dunne for a media day on September 9th and per his WWE contract this must be adhered too. However, thanks to WWE, we are pleased to announce the first ever WWE UK champion Tyler Bate as his replacement!

We apologise to our fans who were looking forward to seeing Dunne but this is completely outwith our control and his WWE contract must come first. However we feel Tyler Bate is a more than adequate replacement being the first ever WWE UK title holder.

If you have any questions please send us a message or email


WrestleZone’s summer season hits one final blow-out this September as we return to the Northern Hotel for Battle of the Nations 2017.

This year’s return to the Great Northern Road venue is highlighted by the debut of the first-ever WWE UK Champion, 19-year-old sensation Tyler Bate.

Competing in the WrestleZone for the very first time, the “Best of British” will be in action at the Northern Hotel looking to leave his mark both on the WrestleZone but also his to-be-announced opponent!

Winning the inaugural UK Championshio tournament earlier this year, Bate burst on the international wrestling scene and is looking to extend his influence and a journey to North-east Scotland and the hotbed of Aberdeen wrestling is the perfect summer treat for our loyal grappling fans!

Closer-to-home, Crusher Craib returns to action for the first-time since his career-threatening injury to take-on his arch rival Scotty Swift, plus former Undisputed Champion Joe Coffey returns to the North-east.

Current champions Shawn Johnson, Aspen Faith and The Rejected will also defend their gold on what is sure to be a great night of family-friendly fun.

E-tickets are available from Ringside World; a limited edition VIP ticket gets you priority entry and a bonus match all for £15. General admissions tickets are also available priced £12 for adults and £10 for under 14s; any unsold tickets will be available on the door, on the night.

VIP ticket holders will get access from 6pm while General Admission doors are at 6.30pm with the main show starting at 7pm. More information is available.
