United Kingdom Champion WALTER def. Trent Seven via referee stoppage
Following the brutal Imperium assault that put Tyler Bate on the shelf several weeks ago, Trent Seven demanded a match of retribution against United Kingdom Champion WALTER. Once The Ring General accepted, the stage was set for a matchup in which the very balance of power in NXT UK was on the line.
The match began with The Artful Dodger attacking the titleholder before he could even get into the ring, signaling the brutal encounter to come. When WALTER finally took control, it quickly became clear that he wasn’t out to beat his opponent but to punish him. The Austrian Anomaly attacked with every vicious tool in his arsenal.
No matter what the fierce competitor threw at him, however, the determined Seven refused to give up and continued to answer back with every bit of offense he could muster – including countering WALTER’s top-rope powerbomb attempt with an earth-shattering superplex that rocked the titleholder for the near-fall.
Nevertheless, WALTER took control outside the ring and hit a powerful powerbomb onto the apron before drilling Seven with a second one back in the ring. Refusing to go for the pin, The Ring General instead hit a third dose of the vicious finishing maneuver.
Then, with Imperium emerging to stand ringside in a symbol of dominance, WALTER went on to hit a fourth, fifth and sixth powerbomb until the referee finally stopped the match.
The pillars of NXT UK of have been destroyed, and the WWE Universe is left wondering if we have truly entered the age of Imperium.
