It seems like everyone wants to wrestle in NXT.
It doesn’t matter if the sports entertainment company called up a star from there or placed them on the main roster right away after signing that said talent. NXT is truly a special place for both wrestlers and fans.
Although Tyler Breeze was in NXT for some time, he missed it and decided to go back for at least one night. Breeze, real name Mattias Clement, got his start in the pro wrestling business back in 2007 and worked on the indy scenes until the sports entertainment company decided to sign him in 2010 where he worked in both NXT and before the rebranding, FCW.
He never won any titles while in NXT but he did win the FCW Heavyweight Championship and FCW Tag Team Championship.
Moving along to 2015, the WWE and its Chairman Vince McMahon decided to call him up to the main roster.
After having a singles run for about a year, WWE officials decided to pair him up with Fandango and form a tag team in May of 2016 that has gone by since then as Breezango.
They worked on SmackDown Live until the 2018 Superstar Shake-Up where Breezango was drafted to Monday Night Raw, which is the flagship show of the sports entertainment company.
Now, let’s get to the interesting part of the story. WWE held an NXT live event on Friday night in Jacksonville, FL at the Maxwell Snyder Armory and at the show, Breeze made a surprise appearance where he defeated Marcel Barthel in a singles match.
Post-match, he decided to take the microphone where he would cut a promo about how he hadn't been around in awhile and they pulled his merchandise off the table.
Thus, he decided to appear at the show and start selling merch again after the show. He thanked the fans for their support.
It appears that this was a one-off appearance but it was quite the surprise for those who made the decision to attend this event.
Brian Fritz of SportingNews.com did an interview with Breeze a few years ago where Breeze reflected on the atmosphere of NXT. Here is what he had to say to give you an idea of how much NXT means to this star.
"It's so underground. It's such a cool atmosphere. There's such a cool feeling to it. We've really been branching NXT out so far that everybody is excited about it. The fact that you can feel it. Like, if you come to the shows we're having in Philadelphia and Albany, the atmosphere is so cool. You can't capture it on TV. You have to actually be in there and feel it."
