Aoifye Valkyrie def. Dani Luna

WALTER def. Ilja Dragunov to retain the NXT United Kingdom Championship

WALTER and Ilja Dragunov treated the NXT UK Universe to a war the likes of which they’ve never seen, but only one man could walk away as NXT United Kingdom Champion. 

The Ring General went for it all early, but Dragunov countered a powerbomb attempt and connected with a top-rope senton. WALTER quickly turned the tables when he sent The Mad Russian careening into the middle and bottom ropes, seemingly injuring his neck. The apparent injury didn’t elicit any mercy from the defending champion, and WALTER poured on the punishment relentlessly with a barrage of strikes.

The determined challenger delivered on his promise to redefine violence, fighting back in almost unhuman fashion with repeated German suplexes despite a near 100-pound weight differential. He also withstood WALTER’s best, kicking out after a gigantic lariat and powerbomb. 

Summoning the strength to hit Torpedo Moscow with WALTER’s back turned, Dragunov was unable to capitalize for a cover, inflicting perhaps just as much damage on his own neck. A second attempt didn’t find the mark completely, netting a near-fall. WALTER rolled out of the ring with Dragunov in hot pursuit, but The Ring General dropped The Mad Russian neck-first with a suplex before planting him on the apron with a powerbomb.

The nearly lifeless Dragunov still kicked out moments later after WALTER hit yet another powerbomb inside the ring followed by a top-rope splash. With the champion locking in a sleeper and Dragunov unable to defend himself, the referee called for the bell. 

The courageous Mad Russian fought valiantly, though fell short of his dream thanks to NXT UK’s indomitable Ring General.
