With the NXT roster having arrived in Winter Haven, Florida, the show rolled on and with the main event came the re-emergence of Itami.
Itami was involved in the main event where he partnered with the new team TM-61 to take on Samoa Joe, Blake and Tino Sabbatelli.
Itami was able to get his hands on the current NXT Champion throughout the match and his return was clearly very popular with the former champion.
With Balor and Itami posing together with the caption that he's back, it looks like the NXT title picture is about to get an injection of new life.
Itami hasn't been seen since prior to Takeover: Unstoppable a year ago so his return will be a very welcomed sight to the NXT crowd.
After tonight's match however, you have wonder if the future of the NXT Championship can be seen in the below pictures?
