Possible reason for Tyler Breeze going back to NXT

Tyler Breeze was a mainstay on NXT before being called up to the main roster. However, his time on the main roster was not good at all for him. Thankfully, he is back in NXT again.

His match against Velveteen Dream at NXT TakeOver: XXV showed that he still has the skills to make it in WWE’s developmental brand.

Triple H talked about Breeze following NXT TakeOver: XXV and said that Tyler Breeze earned quite a lot of respect due to this move. This move is not a demotion whatsoever, according to Triple H.

“I think it cemented his legacy, but I think it also earned Tyler Breeze the respect of a young man called Velveteen Dream he looked at [Tyler Breeze] and said: ‘You’re not walking back in here, this is a different place now, this is my house. You are not taking my spot.’ Tyler said, ‘I’m coming back and going to take what I want.’ In the end, they earned each other’s respect.”

“It was a lateral move for Tyler Breeze. It wasn’t calling him up or sending him down. It was him going to a place where he can do his thing as good as anyone else in the world. I think they both earned each other’s respect and realized that this is the place to be.”

“People have asked if this was a one-off for Tyler Breeze? It is not. I think Tyler Breeze took the first step back to being gorgeous and this was just the beginning.”

It will be interesting to see how Tyler Breeze fares in NXT. Hopefully, he will get to compete in more solid matches.

    Smackdown and Raw are the new NXT.

    Or because he was devoured & forgotten about on main roster other then the side show tag gimmick

  • oppa

    Too bad they didn’t let Tye Dillinger do this when he offered to months ago.

    Eh? What was the possible reason then?
    This was just HHH giving a speech about what happened, there was no “why” answered in this, and as this came direct from HHH himself, the word “possible” makes no sense either.

    And considering all the stories we have been hearing for months with the rumours of certain WWE main roster guys moving to NXT, we pretty much knew Breeze would head back there seeing as he made a guest appearance not long ago.

    Here is the reason why he moved back. He was doing nothing on the main roster since Fandango went out injured, he was either offered or asked for the the opportunity to go back to NXT where he will possibly have the chance to be a player once again, and he obviously felt he would not only be treated better there, but he would actually get the chance to be on TV again, and is probably getting paid the same money as he was on the main roster, or maybe more.
