Former TNA X-Division Champion Robbie E, going by his real name Robert Strauss, made his NXT debut last night at a house show in Sanford, Florida.
Strauss played the role of a manager for the tag team of Rinku Singh and Saurav Gurjar. Strauss managed Gurjar in a singles match against Jonah Rock, helping Gurjar win when Strauss got on the apron to distract Rock.
Strauss’ NXT signing was announced earlier this month.
