It was reported several weeks ago that SmackDown Live star Killian Dain would be returning to NXT as part of the Superstar Shakeup, following the break up of his Sanity faction.
Sure enough, Dain returned for the brand at last night’s NXT house show in Tampa, Florida, defeating fellow man mountain Jermaine Haley (Jonah Rock).
Dain received a positive reaction from the NXT faithful for his return and victory. Following the bout, he was involved in a post-match angle with Kassius Ohno in which he called him out for a match in St. Petersburg tonight.
Dain is expected to be back on the road full time with NXT from this point onwards and will likely return to the brand’s television show following TakeOver XXV.
