Tyler Bate (born 7 March 1997) is an English professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE where he performs on the Raw brand. He is also one half of the New Catch Republic with Pete Dunne.

In 2017, he became the inaugural WWE United Kingdom Champion (later renamed NXT United Kingdom Championship), making him the youngest singles champion in WWE history aged 19. Bate is the only wrestler to become a NXT UK Triple Crown winner, holding the NXT United Kingdom Championship, NXT UK Tag Team Championship, and NXT UK Heritage Cup. He was also the only two-time NXT United Kingdom Champion and is recognized as the final holder of the title.

He is also known for teaming with Trent Seven as Moustache Mountain; the two have held the NXT Tag Team Championship, Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas, Progress Tag Team Championship, and RPW Undisputed British Tag Team Championship. Bate, Seven, and Pete Dunne collectively form the British Strong Style; the three were nicknamed "the founding fathers of NXT UK" by WWE, due to their crucial part in the creation and growth of the brand.[5]

Professional wrestling career

Preston City Wrestling (2014–2015)

Bate debuted in Preston City Wrestling as "The Iron Master" Tyler Bate at PCW Fright Night III, competing unsuccessfully in a 4-way match also featuring Charlie Garrett, Rich Swann and Zack Gibson.[6] Bate returned to PCW at Shooting Star in January 2015, aligning himself with The Hunter Brothers and Ryan Smile. Bate and his team were then defeated by Pete Dunne, Damian Dunne, Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews.[7]

Chikara (2015–2017)

In early 2015, Bate, alongside Trent Seven, debuted in American promotion Chikara as part of their tour of the United Kingdom, defeating The Hunter Brothers in a dark match on 3 April[8] and losing to the Devastation Corporation (Max Smashmaster and Blaster McMassive) in another dark match on 6 April.[9] In their final dark match on the tour, Seven and Bate teamed with Clint Margera to take on Pete Dunne, Damian Dunne and Jimmy Havoc in a losing effort.[10] Bate teamed with Seven and Dan Moloney at that year's King of Trios as Team Fight Club: Pro, making it to the semi-finals before being eliminated by the Bullet Club (AJ Styles, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson).[11] In 2016, Seven and Bate began competing more regularly in Chikara, and on 21 August, they defeated Los Ice Creams (Hijo Del Ice Cream and Ice Cream Jr.), N_R_G (Hype Rockwell and Race Jaxon) and The Devastation Corporation to win the Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas.[12] They never returned to Chikara to defend the titles, and were stripped of them for inactivity on 15 December during Chikara's secret season 16.

Bate returned to Chikara on 1 September 2017, when he, Trent Seven and Pete Dunne, billed collectively as "House Strong Style", entered the 2017 King of Trios, defeating House Whitewolf (A-Kid, Adam Chase and Zayas) in their first round match.[13] Over the next two days, House Strong Style defeated House Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield, Mark Angelosetti and Simon Grimm) in the quarterfinals,[14] House Rot (Frightmare, Hallowicked and Kobald) via forfeit in the semifinals and House Sendai Girls (Cassandra Miyagi, Dash Chisako and Meiko Satomura) in the finals to win the 2017 King of Trios.[15]

Professional wrestling style

Bate, despite his small stature, is renowned for his strength and power moves, often performing multiple delayed deadlift suplexes including bridging belly-to-back, bridging German and exploder variations. He has also been known to utilise an airplane spin and giant swing - occasionally on multiple opponents at the same time. This has earned him the nickname the Big Strong Boi. His finishing maneuver is a sitout double underhook powerbomb called the Tyler Driver '97.[65][66]

Personal life

Like his British Strong Style teammates Peter England (Pete Dunne/Butch) and Benjamin Webb (Trent Seven), Bate became a vegan after watching the 2014 documentary Cowspiracy.[67][68][69] He is currently in a relationship with Sol Ruca. [70]
