Bobby Fish returns on WWE NXT, helps Kyle O'Reilly


After five months away from WWE television, Bobby Fish made his return on tonight's episode of NXT.

Kyle O'Reilly defeated Oney Lorcan on tonight's NXT but was attacked by Pete Dunne and Lorcan after the match. Fish then came to O'Reilly's aid and fought off Dunne and Lorcan. Fish cleared the ring of Dunne, then O'Reilly dropped Lorcan with a kick.

O'Reilly thanked Fish for helping him, but he told Fish that he's doing his own thing now. Fish said he has his own scores to settle too and will see O'Reilly when he sees him.

This was the first time Fish has appeared on WWE TV since Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Fish) defeated Pat McAfee, Dunne, Lorcan & Danny Burch in a WarGames match at TakeOver: WarGames last December. Fish had to undergo triceps surgery following that match.

In the time Fish was out of action, Undisputed Era imploded when Cole turned against O'Reilly at TakeOver: Vengeance Day this February. O'Reilly defeated Cole in an unsanctioned match at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver last month. There was also an angle last month where Strong resigned from NXT following the breakup of Undisputed Era.
