With new contracts for many of the WWE NXT UK Superstars, many of the talents have been wrapping up their independent careers this past weekend.
WWE UK Champion, Pete Dunne wrapped up his time on the British independent scene with one final performance at PROGRESS Wrestling, with Tyler Bate also seemingly finishing his time with the independents for now.
Thank you @PeteDunneYxB
Thank you @Tyler_Bate
For everything you’ve done in @ThisIs_Progress and for British wrestling in general.
The sky is the limit for you both.
Scary how talented you both are.
(I will not miss being flicked with towels and having coats thrown at me)

One of the PROGRESS owners, Jim Smallman thanked both Dunne and Bate for all their work with PROGRESS and for British Wrestling in general, adding that the sky is the limit for both men. It is unknown what the future is for Trent Seven as he is currently the Atlas Champion for PROGRESS.
Both Joseph Conners and El Ligero also finished up their time on the independent scene as well. Ligero commented saying he has loved his 17 years, stating he has had 2, 447 matches and has countless memories, adding that he is incredibly excited for the next chapter.
I have genuinely loved every minute of the last 17 years.
Thank you to every single person who’s made it possible.
Incredibly excited for the next chapter.#NXTUK
