– As noted, Tommaso Ciampa returned to action and turned heel on this week’s NXT show. He easily defeated Jake Atlas and then attacked Atlas after the match. @LocalCompWWE noted on Twitter that the two medics who stretchered Atlas out of the arena were played by indie wrestlers Justin Blax and Ace Radic.
