Welcome back. A wrestler returning from an injury can be one of the more exciting things to take place on a wrestling show. If someone has been gone for a long time, it can be quite the moment to have them back. You never know when you might see someone pop back up, and sometimes they are thrown right into the middle of something important. That was the situation this week.

Get Well Soon: Missing WWE Star Reportedly Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

This week’s edition of NXT opened with North American Champion Wes Lee issuing an open challenge for a title match, with the first wrestler getting into the ring getting the shot. Dabba-Kato almost made it to the ring first but Apollo Crews cut him off, allowing the returning Nathan Frazer to get inside for the title shot. This was Frazer’s first match since Halloween Havoc on October 22, 2022. Back on November 8, Frazer revealed that he was waiting on medical clearance from an undisclosed injury. Frazer went on to lose to Lee.

It was a heck of a return. Check out Frazer’s comeback, plus more of his time in NXT:

Opinion: It’s good to have Frazer back, as he is still one of the more exciting stars you will see on any given NXT show. That was on display in his match against Lee, even if Frazer didn’t win the title. Frazer has done well during his NXT run, but he needs something with a bit more staying power that the fans can get behind. For now though, it’s nice to have him back with a cool return.

What did you think of Frazer’s return? What is next for him in NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
