NXT UK Champion WALTER has explained that he believes multi-time Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is the best wrestler in the world.
WALTER, who is many people’s – including Jim Cornette’s – pick for the best wrestler in the world currently, named Lesnar and Samoa Joe as dream opponents he wants to face.
Speaking with talkSPORT, the Austrian said:
“Brock Lesnar is like, I think – I don’t know how long he (hasn’t wrestled), two years? – for the years before that, I think he was the best wrestler in the world. Nobody was smarter, nobody drew more money, nobody knew how to protect themselves (like he did). He wasn’t there all the time (and) I love that presentation about him. I think he’s fantastic.
“Some of the best matches in WWE in the recent years have had Brock involved because he’s fantastic. He’s going to look like a million bucks, but everybody who wrestles him is going to look like that as well, when they have a competitive match with him. Obviously, that would be great to do (face Lesnar).
“I’d love to wrestle (Samoa) Joe. We kind of filled the same spot, just in different generations. I think that makes it interesting. When I was growing up and I was watching wrestling and started to look out for other wrestling to study and stuff like that, Joe was the man everywhere. He was the record champion in Ring of Honor. He had the great match with (Kenta) Kobashi that I watched 10 times or something like that – I loved it. Joe did so much great stuff in wrestling, it would be my pleasure, obviously.”
This coming Sunday at NXT TakeOver 36, WALTER defends the NXT UK Championship against Ilja Dragunov in a rematch from last year which many people hailed as the best match of 2020.
Dragunov suffered a nasty injury against Roderick Strong on NXT last night but WWE has confirmed the match is still planned to go ahead.
