War Machine have made their NXT debut at tonight's house show in Sebring, Florida.
While they didn't compete in a match, they did come out wearing familiar garb from their independent run and came out to heavy metal music. They were not called War Machine and weren't referred to by name. They cut a promo following the Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner vs. Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch bout.
It was announced back on January 18th that they had signed with WWE, along with other independent names like Ricochet and Candice LeRae. They later appeared in the crowd at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia and were referred to as War Machine.
Here are full results from tonight's NXT event in Sebring. The crowd was estimated at around 150 people:
- Heavy Machinery defeated Dan Matha and Kona Reeves
- Babatunde defeated Raul Mendoza.
- Candice LeRae defeated Aliyah
LeRae defeated Aliyah by pinfall.
- SAnitY (Alexander Wolfe and Eric Young) defeated Adrian Jaoude and Cezar Bononi
Taynara Conti managed Jaoude and Bononi at ringside.
- Aleister Black defeated Dijak.
Black pinned Dijak after hitting the Fade to Black.
- Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner defeated Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch
- Killian Dain defeated Wolfgang
- EC3 defeated Trent Seven
- NXT Women's Champion Ember Moon vs. Shayna Baszler went to a double DQ
They brawled after the match as the women's locker room emptied for the pull apart.
