A main roster member made a surprise appearance at the NXT TV tapings from Full Sail University this Wednesday night.
Ricochet was set to defend his NXT North American Championship that night as it was announced that he would be challenged by a mystery opponent on the show.
Tyler Breeze returned to NXT and took on Ricochet in a title match in a losing effort.

Breeze has also made some appearances on NXT house shows before but this is the first time that he has appeared on NXT television in three years.
Breeze joined WWE’s developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) where he performed under the ring name Mike Dalton.
He would later work in NXT after the rebranding of FCW, and would début his heel selfie-taking pretty boy persona under the Tyler Breeze name. He made his main roster début in October of 2015.
Breeze’s partner Fandango of “Breezango” is injured and that has left Breeze out of the tag team division.
Currently directionless on the main roster, Tyler Breeze could have a fresh start once again on NXT as a singles wrestler.
