WALTER on Why He Joined NXT UK: ‘I Care About European Wrestling’


Current WWE UK Champion, WALTER recently spoke to Sportskeeda about wanting to grow European Wrestling through NXT UK:

“I care about European wrestling and with the start of this brand that’s where it started on the big platform because I think independent wrestling has a very romanticized image where it’s like everybody’s kind of free to do what they want but also I will say there’s a big difference between like environment wise being here and being in the independents because there’s a lot of things that are behind the curtain that a regular viewer wouldn’t get. And even if it’s just hospitality and the kind of hotels you stay in, what is your day upfront, the show, how is your travel organized all of that stuff. Obviously, when it comes to that, WWE’s organized like a professional sports team, a sports team whereas in the independents I’m just on my own. I’ve got to take care of myself. Which is very demanding and very stressful. So, I think I did my bit there and it helped me to grow into the position I’m in now here at NXT UK.”
