Next week’s NXT UK will include an appearance by the NXT United Kingdom Champion.
WWE has announced that NXT United Kingdom Champion WALTER will return to NXT UK on next Thursday’s episode of the show. It will be the first time WALTER has appeared on NXT UK since retaining his title against Rampage Brown at NXT UK: Prelude, which aired during WrestleMania week this April.
The announcement of WALTER appearing on next week’s NXT UK was made during this week’s NXT UK episode.
WALTER also retained the NXT United Kingdom Championship against Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver in April. WALTER’s four most recent title defenses have been against Ilja Dragunov, A-Kid, Ciampa, and Brown.
WALTER has been NXT United Kingdom Champion for nearly 800 days. He defeated Pete Dunne to win the title at NXT TakeOver: New York in April 2019.
Next Thursday’s NXT UK will be headlined by Kay Lee Ray defending her NXT UK Women’s Championship against Meiko Satomura. Satomura became the number one contender to KLR’s title by winning a gauntlet match on NXT UK three weeks ago. This will be the second title match that KLR and Satomura have had against each other in NXT UK. KLR retained her title against Satomura when they first faced off this March.
