At the time of writing this article, WALTER is at 764 days as WWE NXT United Kingdom Champion. He’s taken down everyone that has stepped up to him, from Pete Dunne to Tyler Bate to Tommaso Ciampa to Rampage Brown. It’s become hard to imagine anyone beating WALTER from the NXT UK roster, and even WALTER is looking elsewhere in WWE and beyond for bigger and better opponents who might be able to beat him.
WALTER Names Three Dream Opponents While On After The Bell
As one of the latest guests for the Corey Graves run “After The Bell” podcast, WALTER would speak on his reign as NXT United Kingdom Champion, why he signed with WWE and more. However most importantly listed three dream matches he wants to have when possible.
“When I first got into watching other wrestling, I was watching Ring of Honor. A lot of those guys are the top guys in WWE right now. Daniel Bryan is a match I would want to do. Obviously, Cesaro. Never worked with Cesaro. He’s a great role model for all of us German-speaking talent. He’s always been super supportive. As soon as we stepped foot in WWE, he reached his hand out to all of us. He’s a fantastic wrestler. Regarding NXT, the one match I wanted before COVID was Finn Balor. Those are the three.”
Fans would gladly accept any of those matches, and we were set to get Finn Balor vs. WALTER at NXT UK Takeover: Dublin, an event which was finally cancelled by WWE last month.
Could These Matches Happen?
Right now, the match with Finn Balor still looks the most possible. Balor recently lost the NXT Championship to Karrion Kross at NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver, before taking some time off. While he set his sights back on Kross upon his return, we could see him end up with WALTER as an opponent very soon. Balor could even be the best option to take the NXT United Kingdom Championship off WALTER.
Cesaro is currently one of the top stars on Smackdown Live, and is set to face Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at Wrestlemania: Backlash. We could see Cesaro fall back down the card, and if that is the case, seeing him spend some time in NXT UK to face someone like WALTER could be an appealing option.
Finally, there is Daniel Bryan. Bryan vs. WALTER is a personal dream match, but could also be the hardest one to see at the moment. Right now, Daniel Bryan is a free agent after his WWE contract expired. Unless he re-signs, WALTER might need to wait until his WWE deal is up to even look at that match.
