WWE’s top NXT UK superstars have scaled the Tottenham Hotspur Dare Skywalk to celebrate their run on BT Sport.

Former United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne was joined by his British Strong Style team mate Trent Seven, Jinny and Ashton Smith as they climbed 50 metres above the iconic pitch this week.

The five stars are used to high risk moves from the top rope, but the 50m glass walkaway is no mean feat.

They took the time to pose with the legendary golden Spurs cockerel, and got a behind the scenes tour of the stadium itself.

The grappling quintet were also given their own custom Spurs shirts, and the Bruiserweight Pete Dunne deserves a special mention for the pun alone, as his shirt featured ‘Bruiser’ above the number 8.

Cracking stuff!

The special tour and high climb was captured by BT Sport for NXT UK: No Filter, which will air on Friday night on BT Sport, and online from Saturday.

WWE’s UK brand made its long awaited return last month after a break during the coronavirus pandemic, and the weekly action is broadcast from the network’s set up in London.

Opening up on the partnership and new home venue, Triple H previously told Metro.co.uk: ‘It’s an amazing facility.

‘The intent is for us to be able to in there long term to be able to create this content, and I think if later down the line, we get to a place where fans can come in – obviously we’d be thrilled and excited.’

BT Sport – with the studio itself being in the ‘heart of London’ – seems perfect for WWE as a whole, and The Game confirmed plans to branch out on the partnership which has seen fans get a peak behind the curtain through documentaries, and the No Filter series.

Meanwhile, the creative team had their own issues to overcome, as Triple H admitted the brand had largely been ‘dormant’ throughout the pandemic, outside of weekly packages spotlighting certain matches.

‘We’ve done the best we can with it in unfortunate circumstances,’ he smiled.

‘To now sort of dig in but also to get fans to come in and reintroduce them to everybody, reintroduce them to the brand – what it stands for, how it works, what you can expect from it.

‘While there are a lot of fans that are very used to the product and love it, we’re going to reintroduce this to everybody and built it out in a bigger way than we have done before.’
