Triple H made an appearance on today’s episode of WWE’s The Bump to promote tonight’s episode of NXT New Year’s Evil special on the USA Network.
During it, he was asked about NXT UK Champion WALTER defending his title against A-Kid on next Thursday’s episode of WWE NXT UK, which will air on the WWE Network.
Triple H made a comparison between WALTER and Brock Lesnar.
“It is tough to bet against WALTER. Anyone who has watched him over the last few years, anyone who has recently watched him against Ilja [Dragunov], one of the most physically imposing, physically dominating performers out there. There’s no wasted movement, he’s not flashy, he doesn’t care about how it looks, he’s just effective. That said, you’ve seen it in the past with other talent like Brock Lesnar.
Brock has struggled a lot of times with more smaller guys, speed kills. You would watch Brock Lesnar sometimes step in the ring with Daniel Bryan and have a much more difficult time, Daniel Bryan would get much more in because Brock couldn’t strike as hard and as fast, he would have to catch him first and find his way. In that process, he would eat a lot of shots, now it would take a lot of shots from Daniel Bryan’s size to knock Brock Lesnar down, but he ate a lot of shots to get one in. WALTER just has to sustain that.
Triple H added that if WALTER can get through that then it will be a long night for his opponent. You can watch the clip by clicking on the player below:
