Scott Armstrong returns to WWE following furlough

Scott Armstrong is back in WWE after being furloughed earlier this year.

Armstrong posted a picture of himself backstage at tonight’s NXT TakeOver 31 event. 

“Back in the saddle and definitely happy to be a part of the @WWENXT Family!!!” he wrote on Twitter.

Armstrong, the brother of NXT producer Brian Armstrong (Road Dogg) was furloughed in April among wide-ranging cutbacks. At the time, WWE cited the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason for the cuts.

Billy Kidman, who was also furloughed, recently returned to work. Pat Buck was also brought back after initially being furloughed. 

Other producers that were furloughed during this period but have not returned to the company include Lance Storm, Mike Rotunda, Fit Finlay, and Shane Helms, among others.

A number of wrestlers were also released in April, who have since gone on to work in other promotions including Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (Impact) Rusev (Miro in AEW), EC3 (Impact), Zack Ryder (Matt Cardona in AEW), Heath Slater (Impact), Eric Young (Impact), Deonna Purrazzo (Impact),
