WALTER's comeback opens NXT UK

In his first NXT UK appearance in months, WALTER made his big return to the brand. The NXT UK Champion took to the ring to remind fans that he sees himself holding the title forever in a bold statement.

Backstage, former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin was seen heading to his dressing room before his comeback match for the brand.

Jordan Devlin vs Saxon Huxley

In the first match of NXT UK this week, Jordan Devlin took on Saxon Huxley in his comeback match since losing the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.

The action began quickly in the match, with Jordan Devlin initially cornering Huxley by the turnbuckle with a series of strikes, followed up with a chop to the chest. Huxley then took control and launched Devlin across the ring before grabbing him in a headlock, which The Irish Ace eventually worked his way out of.

Saxon Huxley then pulled Jordan Devlin out of the NXT UK ring by his ankles, and continued his vicious assault by throwing him around the outside, seemingly with ease. The action then moved back to the ring.

Back in the ring, Huxley still appeared to be in control of the action. Huxley continually slammed Devlin into the mat before he retaliated with an eye rake to come back with more momentum.

Jordan Devlin then continued with his barrage of offense, starting Huxley with a series of arm and leg strikes. Huxley then came back with a sitdown powerbomb and a pin attempt, but Devlin kicked out at two.

Devlin took over once again as he stunned Huxley with a headbutt, before landing a Devlin side-suplex on his rival to take home the win in his NXT UK comeback match.

Winner: Jordan Devlin
