Former WWE NXT star debuted at AEW Dark tapings in Orlando


As noted earlier, a former Impact Wrestling star debuted at today’s AEW Dark tapings in Orlando, Florida. Click here for spoiler news on that person’s debut.

Also at the tapings, former WWE NXT star Leon Ruff wrestled. Ruff is a former NXT North American Champion. In November of 2020, Ruff won the North American Title when he defeated Johnny Gargano. He dropped the title back to Gargano a month later in a Triple Threat Match that also included Damian Priest.

Ruff was a Triple H hire and was let go last August as part of company budget cuts. The 26-year-old from Detroit, Michigan previously wrestled in Evolve from 2018 until 2020. Ruff’s match at today’s tapings was likely just a tryout.
