A big star and former champion made his return to WWE NXT during tonight’s August 12, 2020 episode of the show on the USA Network.
Promoted for tonight’s show was another three-way qualifier for the North American Title match at TakeOver: XXX, featuring Cameron Grimes, Kushida and a mystery opponent.
That mystery opponent was Velveteen Dream, in his first match since the Backlot Brawl with Adam Cole at TakeOver: In Your House which was taped on May 28.
Dream was taken off TV following allegations of misconduct being made against him.
In a perhaps surprising result, Cameron Grimes got the win by pinning Kushida, but that does mean Velveteen Dream will now face Finn Balor in another qualifier as he didn’t take the fall.
Dream has held the North American Title once before in a reign that lasted 209 days in from January to September last year.
