It was recently announced that Imperium Leader WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER will be defending his WWE United Kingdom Title against British Strong Style’s Tyler Bate at the upcoming NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff PPV Special.
For the past few weeks, members of Imperium (WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER, Fabian Aichner, Marcel Barthel & Alexander Wolfe) have been beating down and laying out members of British Strong Style (Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate & Trent Seven). One of the beatdowns led to Tyler Bate being put out of action, but he returned on a recent episode of NXT UK after Trent Seven was taken out as well. This would then lead to the match between WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER & British Strong Style’s Tyler Bate for The WWE United Kingdom Title being made for NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff.
