Austrian powerhouse WALTER has officially signed with WWE.
PWInsider was the first to report the major news concerning the wXw and PROGRESS mainstay.
It appears that WALTER will begin with the NXT UK brand and may even continue to work dates with PROGRESS as WWE still continues to work with the wildly popular London-based independent promotion.
WALTER is currently the reigning PROGRESS World Champion, he’s also the current world champ for Dublin’s OTT. The Ringkampf stablemate recently dropped the PWG World Championship to Jeff Cobb in Los Angeles last month. According to the Insider, the plan was for WALTER to come back and work his final show with PWG in December but his recent signing with WWE has prevented that.
A NXT TakeOver show for the UK brand was recently announced for Blackpool on January 12th out of the Empress Ballroom.
