Alex Shelley has commented on making his in-ring debut under the WWE NXT banner at a live event on Friday in Pittsburgh, PA at the Stage AE.
He did so when he reunited The Time Splitters with Kushida to beat The Forgotten Sons in a tag team match.
WWE has already confirmed that Shelley reunites Kushida to face The Grizzled Young Veterans on next Wednesday’s episode of NXT on the USA Network Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University.
As of this writing, there’s no word yet on if Shelley has signed a full-time contract with WWE.
The Impact/ROH/NJPW talent took to his official Twitter account where he commented on making it to WWE NXT by writing the following:
“I’ve more to say, but wrestling for @WWE and @WWENXT specifically has been a dream of mine for awhile. I have had to do a lot of hard things in life, especially the last few years. But so have you. If a single person can draw some inspiration and strength from this? Win. Thanks.
“Broke down on the highway post @WWENXT in Warren, OH, studying for my CSCS exam, looking up chords to @TogetherPangea songs, reading Scott Pilgrim books. Not even mad. The high I experienced this weekend was immeasurable. Thank you, NXT, Kushi, everyone.
“In short, I am the most punk rock wrestler currently active. No gimmick. Bet.”
