Below are videos with “The Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne, who says he’s not your average cruiserweight, and Trent Seven. Dunne says you won’t see him do anything flashy but you will see him beat people. Dunne says this tournament changes everything for them and gives them a chance to show that British wrestling is great too as it has been on the rise for the past few years. Seven calls his style of wrestling British Strong Style and says it’s very high-impact, strike-based and a very aggressive form of wrestling. Seven also warns the cruiserweights not to get in his way.
