Whoever thinks wrestling is a fake sport, will change his mind after watching the match between the Russian Dragunov and the former NXT champion, the Austrian, Walter Hahn.
As a wrestling fan, I have been thrilled many times with tough matches but I wasn't expecting to see what transpired in the match between Dragunov and Walter.
Well, on the battlefield, if little David was able to slay the giant Goliath, then Dragunov can, and he proved it by defeating Walter to show that there is nothing impossible to achieve no matter how big the obstacle in your path poses a threat.
On NXT TakeOver 36, Walter and Dragunov participated in a violent match which forced Walter to submit. The match was previously postponed due to Walter’s injury in July.

After winning the championship by defeating Pete Dunne in April 2019, Walter’s reign lasted for 870 days.
To be the UK NXT champion exposed Dragunov to the most violent fight of his life in professional wrestling. It might be possible that he is not ready to leave this title soon.
NXT is part of the WWE, a wrestling company under the management of Vince McMahon, the CEO, and his family, including Triple H, another distinguished WWE wrestler.
