Former TNA World champion Eric Young appeared in NXT briefly after leaving Impact Wrestling earlier this year. Since a one-off feud with Samoa Joe, the Canadian’s been rumored as having signed with WWE full-time, but hasn’t appeared on our screens since May.
At TakeOver: Brooklyn II, the brand began promoting a new… something… called SAnitY. The arrival of SAnitY has been teased for more than a month with images of discord and protest.
What turned out to be a faction bearing that name made their debut on the latest episode of NXT, when Alexander Wolfe & Sawyer Fulton – a duo who’ve been tagging on house shows for most of the year – entered to face Tye Dillinger & another ex-TNA champ, Bobby Roode.
Accompanying Wolfe & Fulton were two masked individuals. After Bobby Roode bailed in fear and the new team advanced, the hooded members attacked Dillinger… eventually revealing themselves to be Young, and Scottish women’s standout Nikki Cross (fka Nikki Storm on the independents).
It was a pretty cool visual to see the the new faction standing tall, and let’s hope NXT go all jn with the group. This also set up a likely showdown between the Perfect 10 and Bobby Roode, potentially at the next Takeover event in Toronto.
What did you think of Sanity’s debut? Are you excited for a potential Roode vs Dillinger feud?
