As seen last week on SmackDown Live, “The King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura made his main roster debut. Shinsuke interrupted The Miz and Maryse, and on this week’s edition of SmackDown Live, turned his attention to Dolph Ziggler.
With the former NXT Champion heading to greener pastures, Nakamura returned to NXT this week, to say his final goodbyes to the NXT Universe. The crowd chanted his name, and serenaded the Superstar by humming his entrance theme. Shinsuke thanked the fans for their support, and called NXT his home.
The roster then came out to thank Shinsuke, with Finn Balor among the Superstars. You can watch Shinsuke address the NXT Universe in the video below.
Drew McIntyre, Aleister Black make their NXT TV debut
Former WWE Intercontinental Champion, and once tipped to be the future of WWE, Drew McIntyre made his highly anticipated NXT debut this week. McIntyre was released from the company couple of years ago, and the former Intercontinental Champion signed with NXT last month.
Drew faced Oney Lorcan on this week episode of NXT, and got the victory after a hard – hitting, back and forth encounter. McIntyre is expected to challenge Bobby Roode for the NXT Championship next.
The former Tommy End, who competes under the ring name of Aleister Black on NXT, made his in – ring debut on this week’s episode. Black is considered to be one of the best performers in the business, and made his debut at NXT TakeOver: Dallas. However, this week marked Black’s debut on the weekly show.
Black faced, and defeated Corey Hollis with relative ease.
We witnessed yet another impressive debut, in the form of Dylan Miley – teaming with Michael Blais to face DIY. Miley overpowered and rag dolled Gargano and Ciampa, and while his team ended up on the losing end, Dylan impressed everyone with his overwhelming power.
After the match, Miley viciously attacked his partner for costing them the bout, and laid him out.
