For a number of months, a mystery assailant has been taking out NXT’s female roster.
Nikkita Lyons, Wendy Choo, Dani Palmer, Roxanne Perez and most recently Sol Ruca have all been beaten down by the hooded figure. Each of those names has been written off television apart from Choo who has since returned.
On the May 30th episode of the show, Dani Palmer came to the ring to call out the attacker after they’d put her friend Sol Ruca on the shelf. As a video was shown on the big screen highlighting all of the beatdowns, the figure attacked Palmer to leave her laying.
With Palmer laid out, the figure dressed all in black was revealed to be Blair Davenport.
The British star hadn’t been seen on WWE television since competing in a Triple-Threat Match against Mandy Rose and Meiko Satomura at Worlds Collide in September 2022. Rose won the match to unify the NXT UK and NXT Women’s Titles.
Multiple Main Roster Stars Appear In NXT
The show also saw appearances from “free agents” main roster stars Mustafa Ali and Baron Corbin. Ali was coming off the back of challenging Gunther for the Intercontinental Title at Night of Champions and entered through the crowd before joining the commentary team.
After Wes Lee & Tyler Bate defeated The Dyad, Ali got into the ring and raised the hands of the two winners.
In the main event, Carmelo Hayes successfully defended his NXT Title against Noam Dar, but his celebrations were cut short by Baron Corbin. The former United States Champion hit Hayes with the End of Days before raising the title as the show went off the air.
