With WWE taping at the Performance Center, a couple of rarely used NXT talents got a chance to compete on WWE Raw.
Shane Thorne & Brendan Vink made their WWE Raw debut, taking on the Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) in tag team action. Despite putting up a good effort, Thorne and Vink were defeated in the bout.
Thorne hasn't been used on NXT television since November 2019 when he lost to Mansoor. Meanwhile, Vink, known to some fans as Elliot Sexton, has yet to make his NXT television debut. Both men are regulars at NXT live events.
Later in the night, Leon Ruff made his WWE Raw debut, quickly losing to Aleister Black. Ruff has worked NXT television and faced Black on WWE Main Event. He is a regular with EVOLVE.
