Butch Returns To WWE NXT, Earns First Win In Global Heritage Invitational

"The Bruiserweight" is once again kicking ass and taking names on "WWE NXT."

On this week's episode of "NXT," former "NXT UK" Champion and current Brawling Brute Butch (formerly Pete Dunne) defeated Charlie Dempsey, son of former WWE Intercontinental Champion William Regal, earning the first win in the "NXT" Global Heritage Invitational tournament. The eight-man round-robin tournament kicked off between the two technicians and Butch was able to get a dominant victory over Dempsey, despite his opponent's plucky, fighting spirit.


Along with Butch and Dempsey, the tournament also contains Akira Tozawa, Joe Coffey, Nathan Frazer, Duke Hudson, Axiom, and Butch's friend and rival Tyler Bate. Two groups of four wrestlers will face each other in a round-robin competition, with the winners of both blocks facing off on September 26. The winner will receive a shot at the undisputed "NXT" Heritage Cup Champion Noam Dar on September 30 at "NXT's" No Mercy event in Bakersfield, California.
