WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER def. Pete Dunne

WALTER battles Pete Dunne for U.K. Title: NXT UK highlights, May 22, 2019

On NXT UK, WALTER puts his WWE United Kingdom Championship on the line against The BruiserWeight, Noam Dar takes on Mark Andrews, Rhea Ripley puts Piper Niven on notice and Travis Banks battles Joseph Connors in a Fatal 4-Way Qualifying Match.

It was touted as one of the biggest matches in NXT UK history, with Pete Dunne attempting to reclaim the WWE United Kingdom Championship from WALTER. Without a doubt, the subsequent contest was every bit the knockdown, drag out showdown that the NXT UK Universe expected it would be, both inside and outside the ring.  

But in the height of the action, just as The BruserWeight secured the arm of the Ring General and began to bend back his fingers to make it seem as if the tap-out was inevitable, Fabian Aichner suddenly emerged to push the bottom ring rope forward so that WALTER could get his leg on it.  

Then, as the referee was busy dealing with that distraction, Marcel Barthel entered the ring and blasted Dunne with the U.K. Title from behind. This cleared the road for WALTER to hit the powerbomb and successfully defend the gold.  

As the dust cleared, WALTER, Aichner and Barthel stood over Dunne, presenting a stunning united front that threatens to completely transform the rising brand forever.
