Former WWE NXT Talents Debut In AEW At September 11 Dark Tapings
Former NXT talents will be on Dark in the coming weeks
Several former WWE NXT Superstars made their All Elite Wrestling debuts on Saturday, September 11 during the promotion's first set of Dark tapings from Universal Studios.
Major cuts have been made to WWE's developmental brand since April and many of the released wrestlers have started to pop up in other promotions since their 30-day non-compete clauses have expired.
Four of those released talents in Anthony Greene, Stallion Rogers, Santana Garrett and Anthony Henry were booked by AEW for the last set of Dark tapings, where they were used to put over more established AEW wrestlers.
Adrian Jaoude (FKA Arturo Ruas) was the only former NXT talent to pick up a win at the tapings. He and Cezar Bononi defeated Ryzin and Jake St. Patrick.
