WWE NXT video highlights: Tommaso Ciampa returns

Ciampa provided some backup for Bron Breakker against Legado del Fantasma.

On last night's NXT, Tommaso Ciampa returned to the show for the first time since losing the NXT Championship to Bron Breakker at New Year's Evil.

Ciampa provided some backup for Breakker last night, saving him from an attack by Legado del Fantasma in the parking lot. Breakker & Ciampa will team together against Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde next week.

Santos Escobar cut a promo last night saying that he despises how fast Breakker got to NXT, despises all of the opportunities Breakker has been given, and despises the fact that Breakker won the NXT Championship before him. Breakker came out to the ring and told Escobar to issue the challenge for a title match and he'd accept, but Escobar said they'd do things on his time. When Escobar is ready, Breakker will know.

Mendoza and Wilde then attempted to attack Breakker, but he fought both of them off.

A tag team match with Breakker taking on Mendoza & Wilde was set up for next week, with Escobar saying that Breakker will have to face them on his own unless he's able to find a friend.

Legado del Fantasma were going to ambush Breakker in the parking lot at the end of the episode, but Ciampa showed up and stood side-by-side with Breakker before they could attack. The show ended with Legado del Fantasma retreating.
