Last Wednesday on NXT, Walter made his return to the black and gold brand in the United States, setting up an expected match against Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver
Tonight he’s in his first match back, and it’s not like we’re discounting his opponent but we feel sorry for Drake Maverick’s chest.
Throughout many points in his career Drake Maverick has portrayed the plucky underdog, in particular before he became The Rockstar.
Tonight, however, there is little you can see other than complete destruction from Walter – which we can’t wait to see but also don’t want to watch!
It is actually a stacked lineup for NXT tonight, with two announcements from William Regal.
He’ll be addressing the ongoing rivalry between Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly, as well as giving an update on the NXT Tag Team Title situation after Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan were forced to relinquish them due to a serious shoulder injury suffered by Burch.
There are six matches set, including the first defence of the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships, and they are:
- NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships: Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart vs Aliyah & Mercedes Martinez (replacing Jessi Kamea)
- Walter vs Drake Maverick
- Karrion Kross vs Oney Lorcan
- Jordan Devlin vs Kushida
- LA Knight vs Bronson Reed
- Io Shirai & Zoey Stark vs Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez
