WWE NXT video highlights: Ciampa and Balor return


Two former NXT Champions returned to the brand as the "Wednesday Night War" began last night.

Nearly seven months after undergoing neck surgery, Tommaso Ciampa returned at the end of last night's NXT episode. He confronted Adam Cole and took a long look at Cole's NXT Championship as the show went off the air.

Ciampa was forced to vacate the NXT Championship after undergoing anterior cervical fusion surgery this March.

Cole had retained his title against Matt Riddle earlier in the episode. After the match, Finn Balor confronted Cole and said that he's back in NXT.

Two other title matches took place last night. Shayna Baszler defended her NXT Women's Championship against Candice LeRae, and Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish defended their NXT Tag Team titles against The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford).
