Alex Shelley surprised fans in attendance at a recent house show by making his in-ring debut under the WWE NXT banner.
WWE held an NXT live event on Friday in Pittsburgh, PA at the Stage AE. In the opening contest, Shelley reunited The Time Splitters with Kushida by teaming up to take on The Forgotten Sons in a tag team match, which saw the babyfaces go over.

This comes days before Shelley reunites Kushida on next Wednesday’s episode of NXT on the USA Network Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University to face The Grizzled Young Veterans.
The BroserWeights (Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne) vs. Andrews and Flash will also air next week as both matches are part of the first round of the Dusty Classic
As of this writing, there’s no word yet on if Shelley has signed a full-time contract with WWE. It should be noted that the former Impact/ROH/NJPW did work as a Guest Coach at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando last October.
