This week on NXT, Tyler Rust made his in-ring debut for the gold brand.
Rust wrestled former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa in a back-and-forth encounter, eventually falling to Ciampa’s ‘Widow’s Bell’ DDT. Despite coming up short, fans were impressed with NXT’s newest star.
One person who was definitely impressed was Triple H, who took to Twitter to praise Rust:

Now he’s settled in NXT, 2021 could be the year that Tyler Rust becomes a star.
