"WALTER's Last Stand" is set for next week's episode of NXT UK.

WALTER will bid farewell to the NXT UK brand when he faces Nathan Frazer on NXT UK next Thursday. It was said that, on the heels of WALTER's appearance at NXT New Year's Evil on Tuesday night, he's requested to have one final match in NXT UK. General manager Johnny Saint booked Frazer as his opponent.

This will be WALTER's first in-person appearance on NXT UK since the build to his match against Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36 last August. WALTER dropped the NXT United Kingdom Championship to Dragunov at that show.

At New Year's Evil, WALTER and his Imperium stablemates Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner lost to Riddle & MSK. Riddle pinned Barthel to get the win.

Barthel & Aichner are the current NXT Tag Team Champions. The 2022 men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is kicking off on NXT in two weeks, and the team that wins the tournament will get a shot at Imperium's titles.

In a promo that aired on this week's NXT UK, WALTER said the time has come for him to have his last match in NXT UK -- at least for now. WALTER said Frazer is very talented and is the future of the NXT UK brand, but he's not impressed because Frazer is in it for himself just like everyone else. WALTER said Frazer is "taking the absolute piss" out of this great sport.

WALTER said the one thing that will never change is that, when the Ring General steps into a ring, he will come out victorious.

Next week's NXT UK will also feature a tag team match between Teoman & Rohan Raja and Dave Mastiff & Jack Starz. The winning team will advance to an upcoming number one contender's match against Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith. The team that wins that match gets a shot at Moustache Mountain's NXT UK Tag Team titles.
