Nox simply made her grand return on NXT on the Nice American Bash this final Tuesday. There had been a collection of teases that confirmed the charging battery icon, and when it hit 100% Nox got here out throughout The Method’s title protection in opposition to Zoey Stark and Io Shirai. That helped Shirai and Stark seal the deal, and plenty of thought we would get a giant last match between Nox and LeRae, nevertheless it seems that’s not the case.
That mentioned, prior to now stars have returned to NXT for a last match or two even when on a special model, so possibly that may occur right here. Regardless, SmackDown’s roster simply obtained even higher, and it will likely be superior to see them thrive on the blue model.
