WALTER lost the NXT UK Title and many fans wondered if that was a sign that he is moving closer to the WWE main roster. He has declined offers for a main roster move in the past, but it seems that WALTER might be moving closer to making that move.
The SmackDown brand is set to tour the United Kingdom next month, and they will have a special guest with them. WALTER is currently being advertised for the blue brand’s UK house show tour on November 7th, 8th, and 9th. Those shows are in Liverpool, Leeds, and Nottingham respectively.
WWE posted advertisements for the shows on their official website and WALTER is featured. He is currently advertised to appear on those shows, but his match was not advertised. The fact that his appearance is promoted for those shows means he will very likely be there unless things change.
This doesn’t mean that WALTER is making a WWE main roster jump, but it does mean the company realizes what kind of draw he is in the UK.
WALTER lost the NXT UK Title to Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36. That was a shocking loss for many fans to witness and he hasn’t been around since then. WALTER’s name was dropped during NXT Halloween Havoc when Imperium won the Tag Team Titles. Wade Barrett said that WALTER likely had a rare smile on his face while witnessing his stablemates pull down the titles.
