At tonight’s NXT Live Event in Largo, Florida, the internet was abuzz with the news that WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Bayley were in attendance, watching the Sky Pirates (Io Shirai & Kairi Sane) face Vanessa Borne & Aliyah, but the biggest news of the night was former Ring of Honor and indie star ACH making his NXT Live Event debut. He appeared in the opening contest, where he defeated Raul Mendoza.

ACH was announced as part of the February class of recruits to the WWE Performance Center, but so far only Karen Q had begun work on the live circuit since the announcement. ACH’s last indie match was with All American Wrestling (AAW) on January 26, 2019, in a loss to AR Fox, after spending the previous year tearing it up with AAW, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), NJPW and Major League Wrestling (MLW) to name a few.
