NXT made its USA Network debut on September 18 last week, and one of the main angles on the show was the debut of WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER and his Imperium stable.
WALTER, Marcel Barthel Jr., Alexander Wolfe and Fabian Aichner came to the ring, and their giant leader cut a promo about how sacred the ring is to them and other intimidating things.
This brought out KUSHIDA, a man already very popular with NXT fans. The former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion was set upon by the four men, but he managed to squirm his way out of trouble.
Speaking to WWE.com, WALTER has now challenged the Marty McFly cosplayer to find two tag partners for a six-man tag match this Wednesday on NXT.

“KUSHIDA made the biggest mistake of his whole career, he needs to understand where his position is in our sport. So let’s pose it as a challenge. Why doesn’t KUSHIDA find two guys who are foolish enough to stand by him and step up against Imperium this Wednesday at NXT live. Because KUSHIDA and everyone else in NXT will soon realize that Imperium controls the time, and most importantly, we own the ring.”
Who do you think the mystery partners will be? Let us know in the comments.
