WWE NXT video highlights: Ilza Dragunov returns

ADVERTISEMENT

A former NXT United Kingdom Champion made his return in a show-closing angle on last night’s NXT.

For the first time since relinquishing the NXT UK title due to injury, Ilja Dragunov appeared on WWE programming last night. After the main event of the episode, he faced NXT Champion Braun Brecker and JD McDonagh.

In that main event, McDonagh defeated Tyler Bett to become the number one contender for Breaker’s NXT Championship. But McDonagh wasn’t the only person who had his eye on the title. As Brecker and McDonagh went head to head, Dragunov’s music played and he made his way into the ring. The show ended with a gaze between the three of them.

There was also an important development last night regarding the NXT North American Championship. Shawn Michaels informed Solo Sequoia that he would be relinquishing the title, and it was announced that there would be a five-way ladder match at NXT Halloween Havoc on Saturday, October 22 to crown the new North American Champion.

Sequoia defeated Carmelo Hayes to win the North American title last week, but Sequoia should not have been in the match. Wes Lee, who won a fan vote for the right to challenge Hayes, was kicked out of the title match after Hayes and Trick Williams attacked him backstage.

Hayes and Oro Mensa (former NXT UK Tag Team Champion Oliver Carter) are the first two wrestlers to be confirmed for a Halloween Havoc ladder match. Lee and Tony D’Angelo will face each other in the qualifiers next week.
