A trio of debuts at NXT live in Sanford.
Robert Strauss (Robbie E in IMPACT Wrestling) and tag team 3.0 (Scott Parker & Big Magic) made their debuts at the Mar. 21 NXT live event in Sanford, Florida.
A sharply dressed Strauss accompanied Saurav Gurjar & Rinku Singh to the ring and cut a promo. Gurjar would go on to defeat Jonah Rock in singles competition. On social media, Strauss posted that he was planning to "build a brand" in NXT.

It would appear as if Strauss will be used as a manager/advocate instead of a wrestler in NXT. As for 3.0, they lost to Adrian Jaoude & Cezar Bononi in tag team competition.
