SPOILER: Former WWE NXT star returns to join the NXT broadcast team



Former WWE NXT talent Percy Watson will be joining Tom Phillips and Corey Graves at the NXT announce booth. He was re-introduced to the crowd at Wednesday night's TV tapings.

Watson, 35, was signed to WWE's FCW developmental system back in in 2009 and was featured in the second season of NXT when it aired on the SyFy network. He was released in 2013 during a round of company talent cuts.

His return is somewhat of a surprise because I hadn't heard anything from him in at least a couple of years. The last I heard was that he did a few independent shows after his release in 2013. There were people in WWE that were high on him because of his personality so that could be why he was brought back.
