International pro wrestling star WALTER has finally arrived in WWE. The big man appeared at the NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool event on Saturday, January 12.
Pete Dunne had just defeated Joe Coffey in a grueling match to retain the NXT UK Championship. Dunne was then confronted by WALTER, who promptly gave the big boot to Coffey. WALTER and Dunne had a face-off, with neither man backing down.
Dunne’s reign as NXT UK champion is over 600 days but he may have stared down the man that will take the title from him. WALTER’s first match on the NXT UK brand has yet to be announced, but fans should probably expect a rather quick rise in the ranks.
WWE likely wants to book WALTER versus Dunne at some point in the near future and this moment is probably just the first glimpse of the storyline that’s to come.
Takeover: Blackpool was a highly successful event and has received praise online from wrestling fans and WWE Superstars alike.
