I remember you. There are a lot of ways to bring a wrestler back to television after an absence. You might have them show up as a surprise or you might see their return hyped up in advance. Sometimes you, you see the announcement that a new wrestler is coming, only to find out that it is someone you have seen before. That is going to be the case again in the near future.
Over the last few weeks, NXT has been running vignettes advertising the debut of a new star named Giovanni Vinci. According to Fightful Select, Vince will be a repackaged Fabian Aichner, who has not been seen since the Imperium stable broke up in April. While Vince’s face has not been seen in the vignettes, he can be seen wearing the same watch as Aichner. There is no word on when Vinci will be debuting.
Opinion: I don’t know if this is the biggest surprise as the Italian part was a pretty big hint. It is nice to see Aichner getting to come back, as he has done quite well with the chances that he has had before. Now just let him do his thing under the new gimmick, which could work out well given how talented he is. It would be nice to have this be a success, as NXT could use the boost.
What do you think of the idea? How will Vinci do in NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
