At NXT Takeover: New York fans witnessed one of the hardest hitting and brutal battles in recent memory.
It was everything that we hoped it would be and more as Pete Dunne and Walter finally squared off. The match itself was certainly one for the ages and had the crowd of the edge of their seat the entire time. It looked as if Pete Dunne would continue his historic 680+ day reign as he hit “The Bitter End;” however, Walter was able to kick out shocking the crowd.
The two took the action to the air and battled on the top turnbuckle before Walter was able to hit Dunne with a power bomb off the top and a big splash. This marked the ending of his reign as WWE NXT United Kingdom Champion and changing the landscape of NXT. As Walter celebrated Dunne laid in the corner in shock.
Pete Dunne has been the backbone of NXT UK since its inception. He’s been the very face of the brand and the title but it looks as though it’s finally time to move on. What’s next for “The Bruiser Weight?”
We expect him to move up to the main roster soon, most likely in the coming weeks after WrestleMania 35. He would certainly be a welcomed addition to any brand as he has all the talent in the world. Dunne will surely aim to become the first ever UK native WWE Champion. If anyone can achieve that feat it would certainly be “The Bruiser Weight.”
