Tyler Bate "In No Rush" To Leave WWE NXT UK

He has no plans to join the main roster or NXT

During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, Tyler Bate admitted he's "in no rush" to move to WWE's main roster or NXT.  

"It's been something that's been floating around in my mind, is like if and when might I want to go to the States but for me, my goals in wrestling are very simple, and it's just to enjoy it and to do it my way, really. And I get both of those things in NXT UK. So I'm in no rush to go to NXT or go to main roster or anything," Bate said. 

"As far as I'm concerned, I've peaked, there is no progression to the States, I'm already winning. So for me, it's just if and when I go to the States, it's if I feel that my work in NXT UK is finished, but I feel like there's still a lot of fun to be had here which is what keeps me here," he continued.

"I love the crew as well. The NXT UK crew is the UK indie guys that I came up in wrestling with. I have deep relationships with some of the people on the roster, so that's something that I really appreciate about NXT UK."

Bate has been wrestling in WWE since 2017 and outside of a brief run across the pond, he has remained in the UK. He has enjoyed success in NXT UK, though, and he is a former NXT United Kingdom Champion and he is the reigning NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion.
