WWE's Walter on the move?
In 2016, NXT UK began as a professional wrestling television program produced by WWE aired from United Kingdom. WWE Network has provided weekly episodes that is chronologically aligned with the WWE brands. However, WWE is considering to close the NXT UK brand following the speaking out movement. Number of superstars have been accused of sexual misconduct on Twitter with the trend "#SpeakingOut." Travis Banks and El Ligero were among the first superstars within the brand to be released. Tom Colohue, from Sportskeeda, explained that more names are under investigation.
In the past month, WWE has released superstars because of financial issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Vince McMahon is not pleased on numerous activities and situations that he may decide to pull the plug on the NXT UK brand. That would mean superstars in the UK may be released and few may transfer over to the NXT brand.
One particular name on hand that would permanently make a change is Walter. Walter is an Austrian professional wrestler and is the current NXT UK champion. His feud with Finn Balor was canceled due to the pandemic. He was quarantined at home and flights for travel were restricted by the President of the United States. Rumors around the wrestling community are believing that Walter will be placed in the main roster soon. There have been a list of fantasy matches being polled on social media. Here is my view on this:
Walter will go to NXT and finish his storyline with Finn Balor. Then, he would face Keith Lee (potential two-belt champion). Afterwards, the sky is the limit. Walter would fit to challenge every top WWE superstar like A.J. Styles, Drew McIntyre, and Bobby Lashley. Maybe, Walter can challenge Brock Lesnar.
