Tyler Bate is in the doghouse with WWE, according to Dave Meltzer on Sunday during Wrestling Observer Radio.
Meltzer said, “Tyler Bate lost 4 matches this week. He went o and 4. He went from being the big guy that they were grooming for the UK for the future and he has fallen out of favor.” He continued, “He lost the title to Pete Dunne [and] there was a situation where they had a tour. They, at the last minute, wanted to book him on a main roster tour I think. This was a long time ago but this was right before they put Pete Dunne over him. They called [Bate] late and he had made other plans and that’s what happened.”
This week, Bate lost matches to Roderick Strong (NXT TV), TJP (205 Live), and Velveteen Dream (NXT TV tapings).
