Solomon Crowe made his official NXT debut at last night's live event during an angle where Kalisto was in the ring and suddenly, the lights went out after some computer language was heard. When they returned, Crowe was in the ring with Kalisto laid out as Crowe promised that his reign had just begun. He pressed something on a tablet he was holding and the lights went out again, allowing him to disappear. I was told it's something of an evil hacker gimmick for the former Sami Callihan.
NXT star Alexander Rusev, who has a great throwback foreigner strongman gimmick, is working the house show loop this weekend in California.
