Less than two weeks after his war with Adam Cole in an Unsanctioned Match at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, Kyle O'Reilly was back on television on Tuesday's NXT.
O'Reilly came out in a denim jacket and wearing sunglasses, earned the nickname "Cool" Kyle with his laid back persona coming off one of the most brutal matches in NXT history.
Fans may have been split on O'Reilly's new look and persona, but Kyle has a simple message for everyone. Just LOVE wrestling.
O'Reilly wrote the following post on Instagram:
Thank-you internet for informing me nobody else on planet Earth is allowed to wear a denim jacket ever again. My goal in wrestling has always been to be my authentic quirky self maintaining my artistic integrity and originality. Can we all at least appreciate the cute vintage T-shirt I had on? My dear friend @johnmfg found this gem in a St. Louis thrift shop in 2015 and I’ve been waiting years to finally wear it on TV. My focus is on being the one and only Kyle O’Reilly and guess what... you don’t HAVE to love me! All I ask is that you LOVE Wrestling!
Not only did O'Reilly return to the Capitol Wrestling Center on Tuesday, he returned to the ring as he was cleared for competition. O'Reilly scored a victory over Cameron Grimes in the main event of the show.
