Tyler Breeze appeared at tonight’s NXT television tapings at Full Sail Live in Winter Park, Florida.

It was announced that a mystery opponent would challenge Ricochet for the NXT North American Championship later in the show. That mystery opponent ended up being Breeze. Ricochet ended up retaining the title successfully.

This isn’t the first time that the Raw Superstar has popped up in NXT this year. Breeze worked a number of NXT house shows in September, facing the likes of Ricochet, Dan Matha and Marcel Barthel. He also did a tour in July and a one-off in May, also facing Barthel.

Breeze was part of the original NXT roster when WWE rebranded it from Florida Championship Wrestling in 2012. Originally known as Mike Dalton, he transitioned to the Breeze character in 2013 and competed in high profile matches before being promoted to the main roster in 2015.

Breeze’s tag team partner, Fandango, has been sidelined with a torn labrum in his left shoulder since July. He is expected to be out of action until at least next month.
