Former WWE NXT Talents Debut In AEW At Dark Tapings

Full spoilers from AEW Dark tapings

Two former WWE NXT talents made their debuts in All Elite Wrestling at the promotion's Dark tapings from Universal Studios on Saturday, January 28.

First to make their debut was EJ Nduka, who lost to Konosuke Takeshita. Nduka was formerly a WWE development talent from August 2019 until May 2021, although he never appeared on WWE TV. He joined MLW following his WWE release and he and Calvin Tankman had one reign as the MLW World Tag Team Champions. He exited MLW in late 2022. Nduka is 6'8" and 285 lbs. 

Brady Booker, who performed as Chase U's Bodhi Hayward on WWE NXT, also debuted, picking up a win over Dak Draper. He was a part of WWE developmental from August 2021 until his release in late 2022. Booker was let go as WWE felt he wasn't maximising his potential. 

If either talent has been signed by All Elite Wrestling is currently unknown.

Other wrestlers on the tapings included Blake Christian, Dalton Castle, Gravity, Willie Mack, and Shane Taylor.
