Last night, an NXT Live Event took place in Largo, FL and the audience was treated to not one but two lovely surprises.
To kick off the night, former New Japan star and recent WWE Performance Center recruit ACH made his debut. He took on NXT’s Raul Mendoza but sadly came up short.
It is also worth noting that ACH went by Albert Hardie (his real name). WWE might want to think about changing that if they ever want to see him on the main roster because I’m pretty sure there is a certain tag team with a very similar familial surname.

Later in the night, the audience was then treated to a very special appearance by some NXT alumni and current WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, Sasha Banks and Bayley.
The duo popped in to check up on their competition. After cutting a promo in the ring, the pair sat back and watched a triple threat tag team match between Io Shirai & Kairi Sane, Aliyah & Vanessa Borne, and Rhea Ripley & Reina Gonzalez.
They could just sit and watch, however, as the match turned into a four-on-two assault on the Sky Pirates. The Boss & Hug Connection made the save and the four women stood tall.
