Tyler Bate Believes He is Strongest Man in WWE

Published

NXT’s Mustache Mountain, Tyler Bate and Trent Seven have been tearing it up in NXT and both sat down recently for an interview with The Mirror. Bate wasn’t holding back, claiming that he believes that he is the WWE’s strongest man.

“I like to think I’m the strongest man in WWE. It’s why I call myself the Big Strong Boi” Bate proclaimed.

Bate also chimed in on the NXT UK Women’s Championship and how it creates an amazing opportunity for the women’s division.

“It’s a great opportunity for all of the women in the company to show the world what they’re made of and show everybody how good they are. I’m looking forward to everybody else getting to watch them perform and I’m sure they will do a great job.”

After their performance at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 when the lost to The Undisputed Era in a NXT Tag Team Championship bout, Pat McAfee compared the duo to the British Bulldogs tag team composed of Davey Boy Smith and the Dynamite Kid.

“Yeah, well he was very complimentary” Seven said. “It does make you think about just what kind of impact we can have as regards being UK and British wrestlers, having the chance to travel abroad and overseas, being able to wrestle on that stage, it’s a burden I’m more than happy to have.”

“Yeah it’s a lot of pressure to be compared to teams like the Bulldogs and I think Mustache Mountain can really live up to that pressure” Bate said.

“I agree” Seven added.”I think it’s that kind of pressure that really pushes people on to the next level. Our goal is to continue climbing the ladder of WWE and eventually get on the main roster but for now, let’s just keep building the brand of NXT UK.”

Ospreay also mentioned some of the WWE names he would be interested in facing if he were to find himself in WWE.

“I’ve been approached by them, so I have a lot to think about” he said, according to Tokyo Sports. “I’ve mentioned Seth Rollins‘ name many times… Also, considering my history, it would be a dream to fight Ricochet again. I think that because I think we have become completely different wrestlers than when we fought in the past.”

Ospreay has competed for AEW, Progress Wrestling, Rev Pro, and Ring of Honor throughout his career, among others.

Colt Cabana

Colt Cabana reportedly feared for his job at AEW after the company brought in CM Punk back in August 2021. Punk and Cabana had a nasty falling out, and Cabana saw his appearances on TV for AEW dwindle, something that many speculated was Punk’s doing.

During his Keeping it 100 podcast, Konnan recalled a meeting with Cabana during an AEW event where they discussed Punk.

“When I saw Colt Cabana backstage, I remember asking him, ‘So what’s up with you now that Punk is back?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, man” Konnan said (h/t WrestlingNews). “We’re not really talking.’ I go, ‘Come on, dude. After all these years, you guys were boys’ He said, ‘Yeah, man. He just won’t talk to me.’ He would kind of look around, like, he knew [he was going to be fired.]”

Since then, Punk has been suspended by AEW with his firing (or contract buyout) expected in the future, while Cabana has recently returned to AEW television.

“His mind for how everything needs to work and transition-wise. He’s just good. He knows what he’s doing. It’s one of those things were you thought, ‘I’m the superior wrestler in the ring,’ but once you get in there with John Cena, you realize, ‘Well, okay, I didn’t know that. Let’s keep going.’
