Former Impact Wrestling star Robbie E made his WWE NXT debut at the live event in Sanford, Florida on Thursday night.
Robbie was not there to wrestle. He walked out in a tight-fitting suit and glasses (see below) and managed Saurav Gurjar and Rinku Singh.
Robbie noted on Twitter that he is building a BRAND so it looks like, at least for now, like he will be used solely as a manger…or an advocate since Vince McMahon is not a fan of the word “manager.”
