“I Never Needed You” – Trent Seven Turns On Tyler Bate

Trent Seven & Tyler Bate

On the latest edition of NXT UK, Moustache Mountain imploded as Trent Seven turned on Tyler Bate.

Since joining WWE back in 2015 as British Strong Style with Pete Dunne, Moustache Mountain has been one of the biggest tag teams of the NXT UK brand. They have held both the NXT UK and NXT Tag Team Championships, while Tyler Bate was also the inaugural United Kingdom Champion.

For wrestling fans in the UK, you may also be aware that the team have been together since 2014, wrestling outside of WWE in that time for a range of promotions such as Fight Club Pro, Insane Championship Wrestling, PROGRESS Wrestling and others. Outside of WWE, they have held a wealth of tag gold too, making them one of the more successful tag teams of the wrestling business.

However, on this week’s NXT UK, Trent Seven came out to the ring to address the fans after the events of the previous NXT UK episode. He talked about all of his memories in the wrestling business and thanked the fans for their support on the ride.

Tyler Bate came to the ring and hugged his partner – however right before the show went off the air, Seven turned and hit a shock low blow on his Moustache Mountain compatriot. As this happened the crowd were not best pleased, and while lifting up Bate by his Moustache, Seven exclaimed “I never needed you”.

Before rising to fame in WWE, Trent Seven was the owner of Wolverhampton-based promotion Fight Club Pro, a company that has hosted a plethora of wrestling talent over the years, including Kenny Omega, Kevin Owens and The Young Bucks amongst others. Since then, he no longer owns the company and has become a mainstay on the NXT UK brand.

Moustache Mountain recently lost the NXT UK Tag Team Championships to Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter in a triple-threat match that also included the team of Die Familie.
