Update On Pete Dunne's WWE Future

An update on Pete Dunne, whose WWE contract reportedly expires on 1 September.

Pete Dunne

With his current contract set to expire soon, WWE has offered Pete Dunne a new deal.

This is according to a new report from Fightful Select. While there's no word on how long any new deal would be for, the offer has at least been extended.

Whether or not Dunne has re-signed with WWE (or intends to) was unclear at the time of writing.


Fightful reported earlier this month that Dunne's WWE contract was set to expire in the near future, possibly after SummerSlam 2021 weekend, with the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer later reporting 1 September as the date the Englishman would become a free agent. If the contract is allowed to run out, it's unlikely that Pete would be beholden to a non-compete clause.

The 27-year-old could end up appearing on NXT television beyond that date if he does become a free agent, however. WWE taped three weeks' worth of black and gold shows at the Capitol Wrestling Center earlier this week, with the developmental brand's next live broadcast not taking place until 14 September.


Dunne is currently heavily embroiled in onscreen storylines in WWE, having formed a new alliance with Oney Lorcan, Danny Burch, and Ridge Holland.
