Match from NXT UK: Prelude, 04/08

1.WWE NXT UK Title: WALTER(c) vs Rampage Brown ****


WALTER has been booked pretty damn well in NXT UK and his run as champ has been truly entertaining. While I feel the brand comes off as a soulless, heartless version of what existed on the scene before but is now dead, even before COVID came and proved me right on everything, there are still gems to be found.

This was indeed a gem.

Rampage Brown stepped up and he and WALTER killed it, working a match you'd usually only see in Japan. The physicality and flow were high quality and ensured one of the most important things that nearly all gems require; everyone coming off looking good. It exceeded my expectations and again I find myself applauding a WALTER defense of a belt for a brand I barely care about.
