WALTER Initially Thought His New WWE Action Figure Was Fake
Not the desired reaction...
Earlier this month, Ringside Collectibles revealed Mattel will be releasing the first-ever WALTER action figure in November. The Ring General has become one of the most popular wrestlers in Europe and is the reigning NXT United Kingdom Champion but he is yet to be immortalised in plastic.
While most WWE Superstars are happy to see their first action figures, this isn't how WALTER reacted. During a recent interview with GiveMeSport, he revealed he initially thought somebody was making counterfeit figures but quickly released it was an official toy from Mattel.
The Leader of Imperium said: "Funnily enough, I don't follow a lot of this stuff but I saw my figure online and was like' Who's ripping off action figures?! I was about to message them asking 'Why are you doing this?' Then somebody else told me they were official and I was like 'Oh, okay!' I don't own it yet but I'm going to get some and give them to my friends and family. [Now I've got the action figure and the NXT UK Championship] I've almost made it!"
