Pete Dunne was trying to do something nice for charity, but then he got stiffed by someone trying to buy his gear.

The Bruiserweight had to issue a statement regarding a fan who refused to pay in a charity auction. Dunne was trying to sell gear, but the winner had no intention of paying the winning bid of $5,000.

$5k is a lot to pay for anything, but this was the agreed price. This was gear that Dunne wore at NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021. Then this fan did not pony up the dough, and this caused Pete Dunne to speak out about it on Twitter.

First I want to thank everyone that participated in the auction for their generous bids. We raised a huge amount of money for an amazing charity which is a hospice for children in the West Midlands, UK. The last bid being $5,000.


Unfortunately, the person who made the last bid had no intention of paying and sent us messages afterwards poking fun at wrestling being “fake.”

I’ve attached the screenshots and the persons username. We have their name and address and when we got in contact with them on a social media platform we immediately received another from eBay from the same account claiming they didn’t place the bid and to cancel the order.

I don’t know what kind of individual it takes to poke fun at wrestling to the detriment of a CHILDREN’S HOSPICE but here we are.

I will leave my DM’s open for the next couple of days; if you made a bid please message me and let’s see if we can work out who had the highest bid before this idiot snuck in at the end.

We’ll have to see if someone buys the gear from Pete Dunne. That fan certainly caused a bit of an issue when they refused to pay the price that they agreed to give. This was also for a great cause, so that only adds to the frustration.
