On Sunday, numerous superstars from WWE will hop into the ring and look to be the last one standing in the Royal Rumble. WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has already chosen to enter the match first, but he’ll have to make it through 29 others to win the whole thing. Now, current NXT UK Champion WALTER has spoken out and said that he is ready to face Lesnar and is even willing to enter the match at number two.
Usually, the Royal Rumble is a random drawing for when superstars enter the match, but there are those who can sometimes pick their spot. Lesnar wasn’t even expected to be in the men’s battle royal this year, but he chose jump in and take the most difficult position.
It’s going to be interesting to see who will ultimately enter the ring second and be the first to face off with Lesnar. While speaking with Mirror Sports, WALTER said he’s ready to take the next most difficult spot in the Royal Rumble.
“I will go in second, I don’t care.”
Still, WALTER said he has a lot of respect for Lesnar and he would just be honored to share the ring with him.
“I respect the guy because I think Brock Lesnar is the smartest professional wrestler on the planet right now. The number one, work the least amount of time for everybody else, do your own thing… perfect.”
WALTER also said he loves how everyone hates Lesnar, but he knows that they act that way because “they’re just jealous that they are not as smart as him.” He continued on to say he’d love to wrestle Lesnar, as he’s a favorite wrestler of WALTER’s.
As the WWE United Kingdom (NXT UK) Champion, he has already developed a huge name for himself in the company. Known as one of the hardest hitters in the entire promotion, it would be a sight to see for fans if WALTER faced off against Lesnar. Anything is possible, but a match between them on separate brands would prove difficult. This Sunday’s Royal Rumble gives the best chance for fans to see the two behemoths come face-to-face.
So far, there have been no official entrants from NXT or NXT UK in the Royal Rumble, but the brands are expected to be represented on Sunday. Saturday evening will be the time for those brands to shine, as they face off against one another at Worlds Collide.
