Former Impact Wrestling star Killer Kross showed up on NXT tonight and attacked Tommaso Ciampa to close the show. After appearing briefly in a vehicle as Johnny Gargano walked by last week, this week he made his presence clear as he beat Ciampa down and said, “Tick tock” as he lay over a prone victim.
The show did not reveal his name or give a backstory but a shirt was released on WWEshop.com afterward that has what appears to be his new ring name on it.
Also on NXT tonight, Timothy Thatcher showed up to battle alongside Matt Riddle as the two successfully defended the NXT Tag Team Championships. Thatcher was chosen by Pete Dunne as Riddle’s partner with Dunne stuck overseas due to travel restrictions.
The team defeated Undisputed Era’s Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish.
