Not only is WALTER a special talent, but the way that he’s been booked by WWE is unique as he is truly the face of the WWE NXT UK brand.
Fans picked up on the fact that the NXT UK Champion passed the 800-day mark of his title reign on Monday.
He won the title from Pete Dunne back at NXT Takeover: New York on April 5, 2019, during WrestleMania 35 weekend.
Dunne previously had the record of longest days as NXT UK Champion after winning the title from Tyler Bate to become the inaugural champion in January 2017. He won it again, which saw his second reign lasting for 685 days as he lost the title to WALTER.
While NXT UK Champion, WALTER has defended the title against the likes of Rampage Brown, Joe Coffey, Ilja Dragunov, Tommaso Ciampa, and more.
Last week on NXT UK, Kay Lee Ray lost the NXT UK Women’s Championship after holding the title for 649 days, which is the record for the women’s division.
