WWE announced during last night's episode of NXT that Bronson Reed is returning to the black and gold brand next week. His return was confirmed during a short graphic.
The Auszilla has been off WWE TV since October 21. On that edition of NXT, he twice defeated Austin Theory and Seth Rollins' former disciple quit NXT in embarrassment. Before this, Reed was involved in the NXT Title and North American Title pictures. He battled Kyle O'Reilly, Cameron Grimes, Kushida and Timothy Thatcher in a Gauntlet Eliminator to determine who would face Finn Balor at NXT TakeOver: 31, but the Undisputed ERA member ultimately walked away with the victory.
Also announced for next week's NXT is "A Very Gargano Christmas" which will feature The Way members Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae, Austin Theory and Indi Hartwell. Isaiah "Swerve" Scott will be in action as well against Jake Atlas. Scott was defeated by Atlas a couple of weeks ago and refused to shake his hand after the bell. The former Killshot later admitted he was frustrated and William Regal granted him a rematch on last night's show.
