WALTER put his WWE NXT UK Championship on the line against Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.
It was everything you expected with them with lots of mat wrestling, stiff chops and high impact moves. They made a spot with WALTER missing a chop on Ciampa by the announcement table. WALTER’s hand ended up breaking the cover of the announcement table. At one point, Ciampa hit about two dozen clotheslines on WALTER and couldn’t knock him down. WALTER fought back with a store, then Ciampa eventually knocked him down with another clothesline. Ciampa nearly won after hitting the end of the fairytale, but WALTER sent off and then took over on the offensive.
Ciampa ultimately turned things around with an armband submission and punches to the head. Ciampa had another chance to win after hitting a Death Valley pilot on the second string, but WALTER kicked out the pin attempt. WALTER won the match after hitting an ugly bear chop in the chest.
