SmackDown Superstar Tye Dillinger made his surprise return to NXT during the recent Live Event from Rochester and faced Kona Reeves in the opening match.
The WWE Star was said to be very over with the crowd and he won his match on the show. Below is the video of his entrance on the Live Event posted through NXT’s official twitter account:

His surprise appearance has started many rumors about what the company has planned for the future of the former ECW Star.
Prior to SummerSlam, it was reported that WWE may send back some stars to NXT which are not being used on the main roster and Dillinger looks to a perfect candidate for it.
While he was very over with the crowd in NXT, The Perfect Ten hasn’t done much on the main roster since he was called up back in April this year.
Though it’s worth noting here that AJ Styles has announced that Tye Dillinger will get a shot at the US title next week on SmackDown.
Whether this surprise return is a call back to NXT for Dillinger or just a casual appearance should be revealed in upcoming time.
