• Finally: WALTER To Move To The United States Full-Time
We reported on several occasions that WWE management, especially WWF Legend Triple H, wanted former NXT UK Champion WALTER to move to the United States full-time, instead of traveling back & forth from Europe, whenever he’s needed.
The reason WALTER refused to agree to that offer was his wife and his house in Germany, which he did not want to leave behind.
However, various sources are reporting that things have changed, because he is getting a divorce and therefore is willing to finally take the next step and come to the USA on a permanent basis.
As a result, it’s probably just a matter of time till we see the Austrian Super-Heavyweight Wrestler full-time on NXT 2.0 or on the WWE main roster (either RAW or SmackDown) soon.
