The Austrian native made his Professional Wrestling debut in 2005 and has been notably working for promotions such as wXw, PROGRESS Wrestling, PWG, and Evolve Wrestling as well.
The heart of the matter
Since becoming the inaugural NXT North American Champion at TakeOver: New Orleans, Adam Cole along with his Undisputed Era faction have been on a roll on NXT, however, it now looks like ‘The Panama City Playboy’ will have to go through his toughest challenger till date as he is all set to set his North American Title against Indie superstar Walter at the upcoming Evolve 107 show.
Walter, who earlier this year competed at WrestleMania 34 Axxess, now has the chance of becoming a triple champion as he is already in possession of the PWG World Title and the Defiant Wrestling Internet Championship as well.
In addition, Cole will also be without the services of his fellow Undisputed Era stablemates Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly, thus, meaning that the leader of The Undisputed Era will be on his own against the fierce Big Van Walter.
Evolve 107 takes place at the Melrose Memorial Hall on Sunday, June 24 and will also feature several other Independent stars including current WWN Champion Austin Theory defending his title belt as well against another standout performer in Matt Riddle, who is the current Evolve Wrestling Champion.
