The WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative as well as Dunne will be appearing at the Royal Albert Hall in London on June 18 and 19 for the United Kingdom Championship Tournament.
Professional wrestling has seen many great British wrestlers, like The British Bulldog, Dynamite Kid, William Regal and more, but none of them have ever managed to become world champion.
Triple H stressed there is a lot of promising stars out there but is so impressed with Dunne’s talent, passion and growth that he expects him to have an outstanding future.
The 14-time world champion told Express Sport: “I see a lot of talent there but a guy that stands out to me the most is Pete Dunne.

“I think his ability to take a style from years ago, to bring that classic UK style back to the modern form where he kind of blends the two, his ability to be comfortable in what he says and what he does [is impressive].
“He’s one of those guys that just eats, sleeps, breaths it and he’s constantly learning, he’s like a sponge every time I see him and that to me is impressive.
“So, if I had to pick one guy it would be Pete but there is a lot of talent that I feel could be the next one to move to the main roster and really make an impact.”
Triple H will be returning with fellow WWE legend Shawn Michaels in London whereas UK Champion Dunne will team up with Tyler Bate and Trent Seven to take on Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong of The Undisputed Era.
The Bruiserweight will then face the winner of the UK Championship Tournament the next day, and that will be either Zack Gibson, Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Flash Morgan Webster, Jordan Devlin, Joe Coffey, Dave Mastiff, Travis Banks or Ashton Smith.
The tournament’s quarter and semi-finals will take place on Monday when Johnny Saint will make his first appearance as the British brand’s General Manager.
Triple H added: “It’s a very exciting time for us. Really excited about these events from June 18 to 19.
“Royal Albert Hall is such a historic venue – the look, the feel, everything that’s gone down there historically.

“I wrestled there in ’95 at the last wrestling show that was there. The aura in the place is incredible. You remember your first time at Madison Square Garden, you remember walking out at Royal Albert Hall.
“That’s why I was so anxious to put this event out there even though it’s on a Monday and a Tuesday. The venue is so meaningful that I really wanted to do these events and I get excited when we get the opportunity to be back there.
“These two days will be extremely exciting, UK is chock-full of talent and we have the best of the best coming in at that tournament.”
