A video showed Pete Dunne meet up with Tyler Bate and Trent Seven after the match. Bate said he wasn’t making the UK proud, especially with how he left Wolfgang alone against the Undisputed Era. He challenged Dunne to a tag match if he could find someone that trusts him. Earlier today, Mustache Mountain were interviewed about the match. Seven spoke about Dunne walking out on Wolfgang, which upset them. Bate suggested they teach Dunne a lesson and said they were a real team. They called themselves Mustache Mountain.
Also earlier today, Mark Andrews was asked about teaming with Pete. He’s not looking to be Pete’s friend. He’s in the match because if they win, he gets a shot at the UK Title.
