WWE star going back to a previous gimmick?

Butch, formerly known as Pete Dunne, may have teased going back to a gimmick that fans have seen before with Triple H now in charge of WWE creative.

Following Triple H being named as the new head of creative, he has brought back several former WWE stars, including Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross, Scarlett, Dexter Lumis, Top Dolla, Ashante ‘Thee’ Adonis, and B-FAB.

On Twitter, Butch, who has the username of ‘Pete “BUTCH” Dunne’ shared a photo of himself and Ridge Holland attacking Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch on an episode of NXT. This has led to fans speculating that Butch will return to his Bruiserweight gimmick.

Butch also posted this interesting tweet earlier this month teasing going back to his old gimmick at Clash at the Castle next month in the UK:

The former NXT UK Champion aligned with Holland and Sheamus when he was called up to the main roster this past March.

As previously reported, Triple H is also repackaging stars now that he is in charge. With Becky Lynch, he turned her back into a babyface with The Man gimmick before she was injured.

Doudrop recently confirmed she had talks with Triple H about a possible name change.
