Tyler Bate storms Imperium; WALTER vs. Bate is made for NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff
Although General Manager Johnny Saint & Assistant to the General Manager Sid Scala kicked off the latest episode of NXT UK to talk about the upcoming TakeOver: Cardiff event -- coming to WWE Network on Saturday, Aug. 31 -- they were quickly silenced by the imposing emergence of Imperium.
In the wake of their recent tirade to assert their dominance, United Kingdom Champion WALTER spoke for the faction and demanded to know who was left to challenge him. He didn’t have to wait long for his answer, as Tyler Bate suddenly exploded onto the scene.
After a vicious assault by Imperium took Bate out of action several weeks ago, the first-ever United Kingdom Champion reentered the “sacred” squared circle like a house of fire and engaged The Ring General and his cohorts.
As officials and competitors tried to restore order, Saint and Scala determined on the spot to make a match between WALTER and Bate for the illustrious title at TakeOver: Cardiff!
