NXT UK champion WALTER has been a dominant force in WWE ever since he made his debut back in January 2019. WALTER is also the longest-reigning champion in modern WWE. Many WWE Superstars want piece of him.

WALTER has been a very imposing and dominant champion who has run roughshod in the NXT UK division. However, many fans have been wondering if he will ever be called up to the main roster.

While speaking with talkSPORT, WALTER talked about being called up to the main roster. WALTER made it clear that he isn’t sure if he ever wants to be called up in the first place.

“That’s not a scenario I’ve talked about with them. I don’t know. I’m happy in the situation I’m in now. I’m the only guy who holds a European championship in WWE and I’m a representative of European wrestling. To be authentic with that, I’ve kind of got to live in Europe if that makes sense (laughs).


Going forward, nobody can stay on top forever. At some point, that’s the nature of it. Nobody did that before (being unbeaten forever), so we’ll see what the future brings.

For now, I focus on being the NXT UK Champion and I have a big match coming up with Ilja (Dragunov) on Sunday and the outcome of that is going to decide which direction I go in my future, so I can’t even make any assumptions or speculations myself.

So it’s not something I spend too much time thinking about to be honest.”

WALTER is set to defend his NXT UK Championship against Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36 on August 22nd. We will have to wait and see if he will be able to retain his title or not.
