Dijak returned to WWE during Tuesday’s NXT, attacking Wes Lee.
After Lee had successfully defended the North American title against Carmelo Hayes, what looked like cage bars closed on the video screen. Lee turned around and walked into a chokeslam by Dijak, who was referred to only by his last name.
Promos for the returning Dijak were seen starting at Halloween Havoc last month. The first promo showed T-Bar’s mask being burnt. Subsequent promos showed Dijak talking about bringing hard justice to NXT.
Dijak, under the name Donovan Dijakovic, originally wrestled in NXT from 2017 to 2020 before being called up as part of the Retribution stable under the name T-Bar. Once the group was disbanded, he remained a team with Mace until Mace was traded to SmackDown as part of the 2021 WWE Draft. Dijak had mainly been wrestling on Main Event prior to his NXT return.
