WALTER made his surprise debut at the conclusion of Saturday’s NXT UK Takeover event from Blackpool, England.
The show’s main event saw Pete Dunne defend his WWE United Kingdom Championship against Joe Coffey. The match was a brutal back and forth affair with two top rope bumps that appeared to have been botched initially.
After the match Dunne celebrated in the ring and the ending credits appeared. Just as the crowd were being sent home happy a familiar theme (to European fans anyway) started playing and WALTER appeared on stage. The Austrian powerhouse has long been rumored as a signee to NXT UK and now it is official.
WALTER entered the ring and stood toe to toe with Dunne, clearly with his sights set on winning the WWE United Kingdom Championship.
WALTER is the current reigning PROGRESS World Champion, so it remains to be seen if he will be keeping that belt or relinquishing the Championship.
