The referee then begins the count but is interrupted at 2.99 by the intervention of Hayes. Nathan Frazer made his WWE NXT debut against one of the biggest heels of the brand, Grayson Waller. Frazer went on the offense early and locked in a sleeper hold on Waller.
The heel avoided a dive from Frazer before hitting a few thunderous blows to weaken the newcomer. He tore up a beachball and kept the pressure on Seth Rollins’ former student.
