WALTER Wins WWE NXT UK Title At TakeOver: New York

WALTER has not only made history but is now the top star of the WWE NXT UK brand.

The rising prospect captured the NXT UK Title when he dethroned Pete Dune in one of the best matches of the night at the WWE NXT TakeOver: New York event from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on the WWE Network. As a result, WALTER becomes only the third champion in the history of the promotion.

Dune held the title for 685 days after winning the title from inaugural champion Tyler Bate. This contest went down at NXT TakeOver: Chicago in 2017 that saw Pete win the title for the first time in a highly-acclaimed match.

Before losing to WALTER, Dunne made his latest title defense against Joe Coffey at the first-ever WWE NXT UK TakeOver special, NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool, that went down on Saturday, January 12 at the Empress Ballroom.

Walter signed with the company back in January and then made his WWE debut by confronting Dunne at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool.

WWE holds the next set of NXT UK TV tapings on April 19th & 20th in Glasgow at the INTU Braehead where WWE will have the fallout from this event as well as this match.
