Former WWE superstar Tyler Breeze has emerged from a two-year hiatus to grapple his way to championship glory in a remarkable return. Stepping back into the wrestling ring for the first time since his last appearance on "WWE NXT", Breeze claimed victory in his first match for Next Generation Wrestling: Tennessee (NGW: TN), triumphing over the erstwhile champion Matt Cross.
Wrestling enthusiasts will recall Breeze's previous match just over two years ago on "WWE NXT", where he and his partner, now Impact Wrestling's Dirty Dango (formerly known as Fandango), secured a win over Giovanni Vinci and Ludwig Kaiser.
Barely a fortnight after that match, Breeze was released from WWE, yet continued to associate with the company in various roles.

Despite his departure from active wrestling, Breeze reportedly remains on the WWE's payroll, albeit in a different capacity.
The contract stipulates his appearances on the popular UpUpDownDown YouTube channel, where he collaborates with Xavier Woods, also recognized as Austin Creed in the YouTube circle. Interestingly, the agreement does not impose any wrestling-specific restrictions on Breeze, save for a potential constraint precluding him from appearing on AEW.
Since his release from WWE, Breeze's focus has been primarily on nurturing budding talent at Flatbacks Wrestling School, a venture he co-owns with AEW's Shawn Spears. However, Breeze's wrestling career is far from over. His fans are elated with the news of his return to the ring as he is scheduled for another match in September.
Back in May, it was publicized that Breeze would make his debut with Prestige Wrestling at Roseland 6 on September 1st. The identity of his opponent remains undisclosed, but anticipation is high among his followers, thrilled at the prospect of their favorite wrestler resuming his in-ring career.
Breeze's victorious comeback signals a promising future, indicating he's far from done with wrestling and is ready to grapple his way to more accolades.
