The Reign of Walter Has Begun as Pete Dunne Loses at NXT Takeover: New York
Walter has defeated Pete Dunne for the NXT UK Championship. The two men squared off at NXT Takeover: New York on April 5 in a match that can best be descried as a marathon.
It was grueling, it was intense and it seemed to last forever. But NXT fans were not complaining, as these two men fought their hearts out in the middle of the ring. Dunne’s record-setting and historic championship reign officially ended at 686 days, the longest current run of any titleholder in WWE.

His battle against Walter in this match will become the stuff of legend, as The Bruiserweight brought every ounce of toughness and grit he had. He took the fight straight to Walter and never backed down at any point during the match.
The fans expected no less from Dunne and they surely expected quite a bit from Walter, They were undoubtedly happy on both fronts as the newly signed big man delivered as promised.
Walter combines the raw power of Brock Lesnar with the agility and finesse of Drew McIntyre. It’s a lethal combination but Walter is in a class all his own as much of what he’s able to do defies description. Walter is the real deal in every sense of the word and he proved that he is everything fans believed him to be and much more.
