Four NXT stars made their presence felt on tonight’s episode of Raw.
Triple H made the announcement at that start of the show that Johnny Gargano, Tomasso Ciampa, Aleister Black and Ricochet would be making their WWE debuts on tonight’s show. It wasn’t made clear what brand they would be on as they used NXT graphics to introduce the wrestlers.
Ricochet made his debut first, saving Finn Balor from a Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush attack. The four ended up competing in a tag team match, with Ricochet pinning Rush with the 630.
Ciampa & Gargano followed, facing the Revival in a throwback to their feud back on NXT television. The former DIY picked up the win with their old finish, a superkick/knee combo. Chad Gable and Bobby Roode, who watched the match backstage, confronted Gargano and Ciampa before their match and said they deserved the opportunity Gargano and Ciampa got.
Aleister Black was the last to make his debut, interrupting Elias who was about to perform. He picked up the win with the Black Mass.
