Oro Mensah is making his NXT debut next week.
During Tuesday’s NXT, a vignette was shown of Mensah in NXT UK, where he wrestled under the name Oliver Carter. It was then announced Mensah would be making his debut on next week’s show.
Mensah made his debut for NXT UK in 2019. He is a former NXT UK Tag Team Champion, having won the titles with Ashton Smith after defeating former champions Trent Seven & Tyler Bate and Teoman & Rohan Raja in a three-way match on the June 2 edition of NXT UK. Later that month, however, the team was forced to vacate the titles after Smith suffered a knee injury. Smith was among the names released by WWE when it was announced on August 18 that the NXT UK brand was shutting down in favor of launching NXT Europe, which will launch sometime in 2023.
WWE had trademarked the name ‘Oro Mensah’ on September 8.
