This week on NXT we had been promised the return of one NXT UK star, Jordan Devlin after his pandemic enforced travel ban.
What we were not told is that he wouldn’t be the only European star on the plane to Florida. To the surprise of the viewing audience, NXT UK champion WALTER also made an appearance this week.
The feud between Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher and WALTER’s Imperium faction has been brewing for a few weeks with seeds of doubt being sewn on whether Thatcher would rejoin his former Ringkampf cohorts in their current faction.
Ciampa had been clear last week that although he would be happy to mew through the soldiers in Imperium, he really wanted to get his hands on The General. This week his wish got one step closer to being fulfilled.
WALTER’s appearance came in the aftermath of Ciampa’s win over Marcel Barthel. The encounter between the two did not get physical but fans around the world will be licking their lips at the prospect of WALTER going to war with Ciampa with the NXT UK Championship on the line at TakeOver: Stand And Deliver.
