Shane Thorne Moves Back To WWE NXT

After a short-lived stint on Raw...

Back on the March 23 episode of Monday Night Raw, Shane Thorne debuted on the red brand alongside Brendan Vink in a losing effort against The Street Profits. Thorne and Vink quickly established a partnership with MVP and they traded wins with Ricochet and Cedric Alexander throughout April until the new faction was defeated by The One And Only, Alexander and R-Truth on May 11. Vink and Thorne's alliance with The Franchise Playa was dropped soon after and the tag team hasn't appeared on the red brand since. 

Vink and Thorne's time as a tag team has seemingly come to an end as Shane has been moved back to NXT on WWE.com and the wrestling behemoth announced over the weekend that the Aussie will go one on one with Bronson Reed on this week's edition of the black and gold brand. 

Where this leaves Vink is currently unknown, but reports have previously noted that WWE sees the former EVOLVE star as a "long-term project" and he has been someone the company has kept an eye on in developmental for some time.
