WALTER primed for NXT UK farewell match against Frazer
A star-studded edition of NXT UK will be highlighted by WALTER competing in his farewell match against Nathan Frazer, a high-stakes tag team bout pitting Jack Starz and Dave Mastiff against Teoman and Rohan Raja, and Amale tangling with Stevie Turner.
Simply put, WALTER has done it all in NXT UK. The Austrian Anomaly held the NXT UK Title for a staggering 870 days, brutalizing the likes of Ilja Dragunov, Rampage Brown, A-Kid and Joe Coffey in some legendary championship collisions before finally being dethroned by Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36.
WALTER is now primed to compete in his first singles bout since that fateful night, and he’ll be opposed by Frazer, one of the most fearless competitors in WWE.
Leaving the WWE Universe clamoring for more far more often than not, Frazer posted impressive wins against the likes of Mark Andrews, Rohan Raja and Sha Samuels in 2021, but a win over The Ring General would undoubtedly represent the greatest moment of his career.
Additionally, Starz and Mastiff will battle Die Familie in the second of two NXT UK Tag Team Championship Eliminator Semifinal Matches, and the winners will take on Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter at a later date for the right to challenge NXT UK Tag Team Champions Moustache Mountain.
Since forming an alliance with Starz, Mastiff seems to have ignited a fire within his smaller tag team partner, as Starz can regularly be seen revving himself into a fury before the opening bell.
He’ll certainly need that newfound against the ruthless pairing of Teoman and Raja, who recently recruited Charlie Dempsey into their ranks and collectively left jaws on the floor when they beat all three Gallus members to a pulp to conclude a recent edition of NXT UK.
Plus, after a heated backstage confrontation that saw Amale mocked by Jinny and Stevie Turner, The French Hope will collide with Turner in what is certain to be a heated affair.
