Poor Cameron Grimes did not expect to get...well, sort of decimated on tonight's NXT, courtesy of Ridge Holland. That's why it's understandable that Grimes was in pretty bad shape backstage after the thrashing, and thus he started searching everywhere for William Regal. He didn't end up finding the NXT General Manager, but he did come face to face with another surprising face, which happened to be Dexter Lumis, and we're glad to see the star back on television.
Lumis has been recovering from an injury, which took place shortly before he was supposed to be featured in the North American Championship Ladder match. Lumis was actually the first person to cement his spot in the tournament, and his exit let a few other stars who had not been pinned get another opportunity.
Now Lumis is back, which would suggest he will be back in action soon, and after all the momentum he was building before the injury, we're hoping he can just pick up and keep the train moving forward.
