WALTER has officially signed with WWE.
PWInsider first reported the news today, as confirmed by Dave Meltzer. It was expected that WALTER would sign an NXT UK agreement, and PWInsider wrote that he would be "part of WWE's European expansion plans, including the NXT UK brand."
Meltzer reported in March that WWE was interested in signing WALTER and wrote in September that the situation was "alive again" and conversations had become serious between the pages.
WALTER, who is from Austria, is a star of wXw and is the current world champion of PROGRESS Wrestling and OTT Wrestling. He dropped the PWG World title to Jeff Cobb last month.
During an interview with The Mirror in September, WALTER talked about WWE's interest in signing him: "I do not know if I mentioned this, but being part of the Raw or SmackDown roster is nothing I'm interested in. I do not "I would like to live in the United States. I really like NXT, but I think it's a great product, filled with the world's best talent and focused on competition in the ring, something I like. I do not want to say it's never coming to happen because in breaking things happen so quickly. "
