One of the men who really impressed last night at Takeover
was the Austrian superstar Walter. The NXT UK champion
literally chopped his way through a victory, retaining the
title against Tommaso Ciampa.
In the post-show press conference, Triple H and Shawn
Michaels both showered the champion with many compliments.
When asked if we would see Walter more on NXT in the United
States, Triple H said that if Walter wants, thats certainly
doable once travel restrictions are lifted.
Triple H noted that the travel between the UK and Florida is
not much more than crossing from New York City to Los
Angeles so they would find no problem if Walter decides to
travel for every show while he remains based in the United
Walter made it clear in the past that he has no desire to
move permanently to the United States which is why he
remains a big part of NXT UK and only occasionally appears
on NXT in the U.S.
HBK added that if travel gets easier, they would do
everything in their power to get him everywhere he wants to
be. Walter has been champion for 733 days, the longest reign
with a WWE title for decades. Michaels predicted that Walter
will be NXT UK champion for a very long time.
