TNA Names Working For NXT, Return Of Blue Pants, More Spoiler News From Tapings

James Storm - NXT Debut

SPOILER WARNING: The following post contains information that will SPOIL upcoming episodes of WWE NXT. If you do not want to be SPOILED, please stop reading now...

- While Gunner and Austin Aries were spotted at Thursday’s WWE NXT tapings in Winter Park, Florida, neither worked the show. There were a lot of rumors throughout the day, with the name of Jeff Hardy coming up. It’s certainly interesting seeing some of these TNA guys coming in and working for NXT, essentially replacing what was once Impact.

- Jesse Sorensen was featured in a squash match against Apollo Crews that was taped for next week’s NXT. This isn’t the first time he’s worked down in NXT but our correspondent, Scott Brooks, noted Sorensen didn’t hit any offense at all.

- Blue Pants ended up returning to NXT, getting squashed by Nia Jax in a bout taped for the December 2, 2015 episode. This comes on the heels of our report that TNAwas interested. It’s more notable that WWE brought her back because they were reportedly “over her” after they soured on her attitude and an incident over SummerSlam weekend in Brooklyn involving public intoxication. Very few people knew a TNA offer was on the table, so it’s possible that report got her brought back.

- The next WWE NXT taping in Florida will be January 22, 2016 from the CFE Arena on the campus of University of Central Florida.
