Former NXT Wrestlers Make Surprise Appearances at TV Taping

nxt killian dane wwe apollo crew nxt return

Two former NXT wrestlers made separate surprise appearances at the latest TV taping. 

First, Killian Dane made his anticipated return by destroying Matt Riddle after a match and putting him through the stage with a cannonball. 

As you’ll recall, Dain’s former faction SAnitY was called up in April ’18 and disbanded one year later. Alexander Wolfe has since moved to NXT UK to form Imperium alongside his Ringkampf brethren and Nikki Cross aligned herself with Alexa Bliss.

As we previously reported, Road Dogg revealed during a recent interview that he’s been working on vignettes for Dain with Jeremy Borash at the WWE Performance Center. 

Apollo Crews was next to surprise the crowd after being introduced as Kushida’s opponent. Unfortunately, he lost the match.
