Pete Dunne‘s historic 600 plus day reign as NXT UK Champion will continue, at least for a little while longer. The Bruiserweight reasserted his dominance over NXT UK by defeating Joe Coffey at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool to retain his NXT UK Championship.

The physical match featured plenty of excitement, along with numerous high spots & a barrage of risky maneuvers:

Wrestlers took to Twitter to recognize the high quality of the bout. NXT UK’s Kenny Williams tweeted, “Unreal and they’re no even finished yet!”

NXT Superstar Tegan Nox added, “Holy heck, this match is incredible!”

Mark Andrews chimed in with a bit of an understatement, “This is an outstanding main event.”

NXT UK’s Ligero believes the match was ‘on another level’ altogether:

Flash Morgan Webster gave high praise to Dunne, calling him ‘the best of our generation’ & pondered whether anyone could ever actually beat the NXT UK Champion:

WALTER may have provided an answer to the question: Can anyone beat Pete Dunne? While Dunne was successful in retaining his NXT UK Championship against Coffey his reign may be in jeopardy. United Kingdom star WALTER appeared at the event to confront the NXT UK Champion face to face:

The Bruiserweight; however, stood his ground and refused to back down:

205 Live‘s Drake Maverick believes WALTER might just be the man to unseat Pete Dunne, as the new face of NXT UK:
