WWE taped next week’s edition of NXT this week. The show will air on SyFy rather than USA Network due to USA’s coverage of the Olympic Games.
The show will be a noteworthy one including the surprise return of a young star who has spent months on the injured list: Ridge Holland.
Whilst news on exactly what the Yorkshireman did on the show, he made his return after the bout pitting Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa against Pete Dunne and Oney Lorcan.
Holland suffered a freak injury on an episode of NXT in October 2020. At the time he had recently aligned with Lorcan, Pat McAfee and Danny Burch. He was slated to team with those three to face The Undisputed Era at November’s TakeOver: WarGames.
His place was subsequently taken by Pete Dunne so it is safe to assume that he will align with the Bruiserweight and Lorcan going forward.
McAfee is now colour commentator on SmackDown and Burch finds himself on the long term injured list.
An episode not to miss for sure.
