Tyler Bate (March 7, 1997) is a British professional wrestler, currently competing for various independent promotions in Europe and occasionally the United States. Bate was the winner of the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament, and is also the inaugural and one-time WWE United Kingdom Champion. Bate is one of only two wrestlers in WWE history to win a championship as a teenager, with the other being Rene Dupree.

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 on October 31, 2014, competing unsuccessfully in a 4 way match also featuring Charlie Garrett, Rich Swann and Zack Gibson. 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.

Chikara Pro (2015-present)

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 April 3 and losing to the Devastation Corporation (Max Smashmaster and Blaster McMassive) in another dark match on April 6. 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. 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). In 2016, Seven and Bate began competing more regularly in Chikara, and on August 21, 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 Campeonatos De Parejas.

Progress Wrestling (2016–present)

Bate debuted in Progress Wrestling at Chapter 28 alongside Trent Seven as Moustache Mountain in a loss to Damian and Pete Dunne. At Chapter 33, Moustache Mountain split after Seven turned heel, attacking Bate and aligning with Pete Dunne to form British Strong Style. At Chapter 39, Bate returned to Progress, attacking Jimmy Havoc during a 7 man elimination match for the vacant Progress Wrestling Championship, turning heel and aligning himself with Seven and Dunne. On December 16, Seven and Dunne were stripped of the Progress Tag Team Championship after Dunne attempted to give his half of the shield to Bate. Two weeks later at Chapter 41, Seven and Bate defeated The London Riots and The LDRS of the New School (Zack Sabre Jr & Marty Scurll) in a three-way tag team match to win the vacant titles.

WWE (2016–present)

On December 15, 2016, it was revealed that Bate would be one of 16 men competing in a two night tournament to crown the first ever WWE United Kingdom Champion on January 14 and 15, 2017. Bate defeated Tucker in the first round to advance to the quarter-finals, before defeating Jordan Devlin to advance to the semi-finals. Bate then defeated Wolfgang in the semi-finals and Pete Dunne in the final to win the tournament and become the inaugural champion. Bate was presented with the title belt by Triple H, William Regal, Finn Balor and Fit Finlay.
