Starr would take WALTER's title belt and stomp on it, which would result in a hearty WALTER powerbomb.

Pete Dunne, who helped establish the Championship, would go on to tweet about the matter.

In addition to his notable NXT UK Title spot, Starr shocked the wrestling world when he took to Twitter earlier this year to state his disregard for the actions of the company’s owners. It was around this time that he was due to face ROH Champion Jay Lethal in Israel. Starr appeared on Eat Sleep Suplex Retweet to clarify the situation.

”Sinclair Broadcasting got really upset that I put this promo out on my own and they demanded that it could be taken down. They implied that they would pull Jay from the show. Then they said on their website that no matter who the champion was that the Ring of Honor title would be defended at the show, first time in Israel. They tried to make a good publicity off of having defended as a Jewish kid in Israel. They thought it would be cute and you know, it is what it is. Now. I have no respect for Ring of Honor's upper management. I'm not talking about the people that book a show, I’m not talking about any of the wrestlers, I’m talking about the people that get paid directly by Sinclair Broadcasting Group which helps to perpetuate narratives that immigrants are less than that and what they advocated for putting children in cages and separating families, they’ve compared multiculturalism to a cancer epidemic. Yeah no I have no respect for anyone who is directly working for them and upper management," said Starr.

Starr would also go on to clear the air about rumored issues with Session Moth Martina, saying there were none. The two posed for a photo together this past weekend and made light of said rumors.
