Ilja Dragunov has defeated Walter at NXT TakeOver 36, ending Walter’s record-breaking reign of 870 days as NXT United Kingdom Champion.
Late in the match Dragunov put a sleeper hold and Walter drops him on his back. But Dragunov gets back up and takes big shots on Walter’s neck. He puts on the sleeper again and follows with more shots at the back of Walter’s neck. Dragunov puts on the sleeper again and Walter taps out.
Walter first won the NXT United Kingdom Championship at NXT TakeOver: New York in April 2019 against Pete Dunne.
