It was originally reported back in March that WWE was interested in signing Austrian heavyweight wrestler WALTER, and that the company had even made an offer prior to WrestleMania 34.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is stating that while original talks obviously did not work out, WWE has once again increased their efforts to bring the current PWG and Progress World Champion onboard.
The new report from Dave Meltzer notes that a major reason WALTER turned down a contract the first time around is that he is employed by the wXw promotion in Germany where he first made his name, and has no interest in spending the major of his time in the United States, away from home.
However, there is reportedly a new offer in place for him to sign a contract as a member of the WWE UK roster. That would allow him to continue taking dates all over Europe and remain close to home, while working with wXw and he would of course be a major fixture of the budding NXT UK brand which has yet to debut. Apparently, the idea is for him to be treated much like Pete Dunne and Mustache Mountain, brought in for a few days every month or so to film NXT television.
