WALTER Has No Ill Feelings About WWE Survivor Series 2019 Elimination

He was pinned in three minutes at the pay-per-view

WALTER has been presented as an unbeatable competitor throughout much of his WWE run but the company risked destroying some of that aura when The Ring General was pinned in three minutes to open the Survivor Series Men's Elimination Match in 2019. 

The Ring General doesn't believe him being pinned at the pay-per-view led to any long-term damage, though, and WALTER noted during a media call that he doesn't have any ill feelings about the situation.

"First of all, I said it before, I'm a basic wrestling guy. I like a one-on-one, I like a tag match or a six-man tag. But, I really don't like three ways and especially don't like three ways when it's like a team of five on each side. That's first of all. Those circumstances aren't very enjoyable for me. In regards of the match, it was what it was but I think it was - people still talk about it so it's still memorable," WALTER said. 

"Also the reactions I got from the main roster audience, even though I was in front of them [for] the first time, were very positive in my direction and that stayed in the heads of a lot of people so, I don't think it hurt me at all because it didn't change me or didn't change who I am. I also - I don’t know. I wasn't bitter about anything like that. I watched Survivor Series as a kid many, many times and if I never make it back, at least I wrestled Survivor Series once so that's something to be happy about a little bit. But no, at the end of the day, it's - it is what it is and there are no ill feelings towards it."

WALTER will be in action on Sunday at NXT TakeOver 36 and he is scheduled to defend the NXT United Kingdom Championship against Ilja Dragunov.
