Challenge Issued to WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne

WWE United Kingdom Champion and former PROGRESS World Champion Pete Dunne has been issued a challenge that will pit him against one of the more underrated stars of the European independent scene.

Promoter of Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw) Christian Michael Jakobi appeared during PROGRESS Wrestling’s Super Strong Style 16 event and challenged the reigning WWE UK Champion to a bout against the wXw World United Heavyweight Champion…Ilja Dragunov.

Dragunov became the wXw Champion during the company’s 16 Carat Gold 2018 event back in March of this year, he defeated then Champion John Klinger and WWE linked star WALTER in an incredible bout that headlined day two of the tournament. This marked the return of Dragunov to the company and he received a thunderous reception from the wXw fanbase.

The date of this European super bout has not yet been confirmed however the likelihood is that it will be one of the headliners during the co-branded PROGRESS/wXw tour which takes place late August/early September.
