- WWE UK championship tournament participant Paul Gallagher was interviewed by Belfast Live recently. Gallagher said that he was returning to wrestling regularly after undergoing surgery when he was contacted by WWE. He also said that he will be the complete package.
"I'd be a hard-hitting high flyer," Gallagher said. "I'd be very well-rounded, I can do anything - but I'd say my favorite thing would be to trade off and have a good brawl. The last few years my showmanship has come on a lot - you need to have the full package, that's what WWE are looking for."
