He’s back. There are a lot of wrestlers on the NXT roster today and it can be difficult to find something for everyone to do. As a result, it can be fairly easy for someone to slip away without being noticed. That can make for a big return later and a nice moment for the fans as they might not know it is coming. NXT did just that this week and a major showdown has been set as a result.
This week’s NXT featured the return of Santos Escobar, who cost Tony D’Angelo and the D’Angelo Family the Tag Team Titles. D’Angelo was attempting to use a crowbar but Escobar interfered and attacked D’Angelo instead. Later in the show, D’Angelo challenged Escobar to a final showdown, which will take place next week. This was Escobar’s first appearance since June as he has been out of action with an undisclosed injury.
Opinion: The Escobar return was a very well done moment as you only saw his hand and did not know who it was at first. Escobar returning to set up the big showdown with D’Angelo is a good thing as their feud has been going on for far too long now. Hopefully the match will wind up being good, as the story needs a satisfying conclusion, whatever that may be next week.
What did you think of the return? How will the final showdown go? Let us know in the comments below.
