Pete Dunne arrived on SmackDown last night, but he did so using a new name.

Sheamus and Ridge Holland became a trio as they introduced Dunne as their newest associate. Sheamus said some people may know this person by a different name, but they know him by his nickname -- Butch.

Butch helped Sheamus & Holland defeat Big E & Kofi Kingston in a tag team match last night. He distracted Kingston, which led to Sheamus blindsiding Kingston with a Brogue Kick. Butch then attacked Kingston after the match. Sheamus and Holland pulled Butch away, but Butch went back and attacked him again.

There was a terrifying moment during the tag match where a spot went wrong and Big E landed on his head when Holland gave him an overhead belly-to-belly suplex on the floor. Big E was stretchered out and later posted an update from the hospital. Big E said he was able to move all of his digits and his strength felt fine, but doctors were telling him that his neck is broken.
