Really surprised by that, but full credit to Tyler Bate and fully deserved.

Fantastic tournament.

That main event was superb, I wonder if they went with Tyler last minute based on his reactions, as all the clues pointed to Dunne taking the title. I wonder if Tyler ends up making a brief Royal Rumble appearance to promote the new UK show!

Fun Fact with this win Tyler becomes the second youngest champion in WWE/F history and youngest singles champion, only behind Renee Dupree who was about 3 months younger

I greatly enjoyed his perfomances and his character. Was pretty excited to see him face off against Seven tbh even though I had known nothing about either before the tourney. Wolfgang is great too though and the swerve on that worked pretty well.

Didn't catch it. Figured it would be aimed at quite a casual audience

Thought this was brilliant. Daft to compare with WoS though as they are two different beasts. Was completely surprised that Tyler won and thought too that it could have been to the response. I thought the commentary team were great with it too though. Really put over everyone on the show. I have thought all along that whoever won it was going to get a spot in the Rumble. Just to push the show as they have said.

Does anyone know what the plan is with the championship and how it will be defended? Saw Damo tweeting Tyler to say there will be some guys after him, including some big lads.

Gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and say all the booking was planned beforehand. It was a lovely little decision to have Devlin turn heel in his first match before carrying on to face Bate. He executed it very well too.

Injuries and the number of matches wrestled as factors were constantly played up in commentary and I think it protected a few of them, like with Wolfgang, Gradwell and even adding to Bate's eventual victory. They did keep pointing out Connors' ear though which id rather not look at.

Apparently all the guys in the tournament signed a contract for £16500 a year according to Dave hence why Sabre Jr wasn't involved.

Assume he can earn a lot more than that?

They can all still take ICW and Progress bookings i think

They get that as a basic salary to do all WWE shows as a priority then whatever they make on the indies on top. Guessing ZSJ and the likes would prefer to have freedom.

It appears they can only work indie shows approved by WWE, ICW and Progress were featured and actively thanked on the show. Rev Pro probably also on the list

They can't work WCPW but that's probably because What Culture berated WWE for years.

Hmmm, they've never turned down WhatCulture from their press events though it seems. Which would be more the appropriate response to that.

Trips was saying he only wanted to work with promotions that grow talent not ones that just hire proven talent for shows (I presume a dig at WCPW). The WCPW lot said it something to do with their PPVs
