Hello Wembley Predictions: Pete Dunne vs Ilja Dragunov



There’s no denying that Pete Dunne is the hottest European property right now, and will no doubt be one of the biggest wrestlers in the world in years to come. He’s still young, but has already been PROGRESS World Champion, also holding the NXT UK Championship for well over a year. The Bruiserweight is a tactical nightmare in the ring, picking the weakness out in his opponent and exploiting it until they either tap out or suffer a pin fall. Not only is he a skilled submission expert, but he lives up to his name by being a strong and powerful competitor.

Ilja Dragunov may be relatively unknown outside Germany’s wXw promotion, but if you’ve been fortunate enough to see him in action you’ll know he’s a more than worthy opponent for Dunne, with the ability to match his ferocity and strength in the ring. Managing Director of wXw, Christian Michael Jacobi personally challenged Dunne to the match back in May at Super Strong Style, and with the match finally being made at Hello Wembley, it has the potential to be match of the night.

Dragunov featured in the PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles, and is finally starting to make waves outside of Germany, and this match is going to prove who the best wrestler in Europe is. Pete Dunne has a challenge on his hands, but I believe he’ll get the edge over Dragunov here and walk out of Wembley victorious. Even with a loss, after Wembley Ilja Dragunov will have more of a fan base than before, and I can’t wait to see this match come to fruition.

Winner: Pete Dunne
