There he is. Sometimes a wrestler needs to take some time away from the public eye to shake things up a little bit. It might be just to give the person a refresher or something brand new entirely. There might even be a bit of mystery to the whole thing, as the person’s identity could be concealed. That is not the case this time, as WWE has flat out said who a returning star will be.
Over the last few weeks, NXT has been presenting vignettes of a soon to be debuting star named Giovanni Vinci. Throughout the vignettes, Vinci’s identity was not made clear, as only his hands and feet were shown. This week though, Vinci’s face was shown, revealing that he is the star formerly known as Fabian Aichner, who will be returning next week. This had been rumored since the vignettes began but never confirmed.
Nice to meet you. Check out the final vignette:
Opinion: This wasn’t exactly a surprise but it is interesting to see NXT flat out show who Vinci is. What matters is that Aichner is getting another chance with something fresh, as he has always been a talented star who has never gotten much of a shot on his own. Maybe this is what he needs, but at least he is being givent he chance, which is more than some can say.
What do you think of the new character? How will it go in NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
