Ilja Dragunov : Bio
The full fury of the highly dangerous Ilja Dragunov emerged on the NXT UK scene with glaring eyes, an unbridled intensity and the distinct ability to always be on the attack.
Armed with and a wildly charismatic persona and an aggressive arsenal — the crown jewel of which is the devastating Torpedo Moscow — the unique competitor born in Moscow, Russia is nearly impossible to contain. And that's more true than ever following Dragunov's grizzly encounter with NXT UK Champion WALTER, as the two competitors battled in a harrowing title bout that set a new standard for brutality in NXT UK.
Then, at NXT TakeOver 36, The Mad Russian finally exorcised his demons, and ended the longest championship reign in WWE’s modern era at 870 days by overcoming WALTER to lay claim to the NXT UK Championship in an epic rematch.
This explosive tour-de-force emerges in the volatile world of NXT UK and has shown one and all that he will conquer and destroy anyone who gets in his way.
