Shawn Spears is back in WWE

Shawn Spears has made his return to WWE last night on NXT, as he attacked Ridge Holland from behind with a steel chair. Indeed, as Ridge Holland was about to speak about his actions on Gallus these last weeks, the lights went out and the following message appeared on the screen: “Truth will ultimately prevail, but there is pain bringing it to light”. A man appeared in the ring to hit Holland in the back and revealed his face, letting everyone see Shawn Spears in the center of the squarred circle.

The last WWE match of Shawn Spears was back in February 2019, before he signed to AEW where he performed between May 2019 and September 2023. Last night, he returned to the place where he was called Tye Dillinger before, and said he was going to be at NXT Roadblock next Tuesday.
