The David Starr spot was not approved.
The headlining match of OTT Wrestling's 'WrestleRama 3' show on June 23rd featured David Starr taking on the current WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER in a non-title match. During their one-on-one encounter, Starr stepped on the U.K. Title which got a standing ovation from the crowd inside National Basketball Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
It was noted in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE did not approve of Starr stepping on the title and no one was made aware of the spot ahead of time. WALTER and Starr made the call to shock the fans in attendance and the conclusion of the note in the Observer reads that WWE officials were not happy Starr stepping on the title. There were wrestlers who felt that it was disrespectful including "The Bruiserweight" Pete Dunne who indirectly commented on the matter.

Anti David Starr
With his duties as WWE United Kingdom Champion, WALTER is also the PROGRESS Unified World Champion and he will be defending that title against Eddie Kingston at PROGRESS' 'Prog On The Tyne' show.
