NXT UK stable Imperium invaded NXT during their USA premiere episode last night and got involved with KUSHIDA apart from the show-closing brawl.
WWE Performance Center athlete, Denzel DeJournete, entered to face KUSHIDA in a singles match at NXT’s USA premiere episode. But Fabian Archer, Marcel Barthel and Alexander Wolfe came out and assaulted him. After they were done, WWE UK Champion WALTER also made his way to the ring to a huge pop from Full Sail crowd.
WALTER took the mic and introduced his stable. He made it clear that this mat is sacred to them and they are here to restore the honor and tradition of their sport. He also put NXT locker room on notice and warned that those who disrespect the tradition and the mat, their time shall be spent answering to Imperium.
At this point, Kushida entered at the ramp and told them that it’s his time and now WALTER’s time belongs to him. He enters the ring and Imperium start running around him. He fought out Archer, Wolfe and Barthel but WALTER grabbed him from behind. KUSHIDA was too quick to get out of WALTER’s grip and started retreating. But not before putting a challenge to WALTER for a match.
Later in the show, Imperium was also involved in an out of control brawl during the main event Street Fight between Matt Riddle and Killian Dain.
