Pete Dunne may play a bruiser on television but he is a very kind and generous person in real life. The latest example of this is that he recently sold 2,000 shirts to raise money for Black Lives Matter.
Dunne, Trent Seven, and Tyler Bate collectively decided to release the original British Strong Style shirt to raise money for the cause. Dunne revealed today that they had sold 2,000 shirts in under 24 hours. While he has yet to do the final calculations, Dunne said this should clear £20,000.
You purchased 2000 shirts in under 24 hours
Yet to do the calculations properly but that should clear a £20,000 donation
Gonna cap it there to make sure we can actually handle that many orders in one go

The shirt is currently listed as sold out on the website and we do not know if it will be restocked. Dunne’s original tweet said the shirt would be on sale for a couple of days so it is possible that was it.
Dunne is currently stuck in England due to the pandemic. He was one half of the NXT Tag Team Champions with Matt Riddle prior to the pandemic. As a replacement, Timothy Thatcher took his place as Riddle’s partner. This did not last long as Thatcher cost them the titles last month.
