In the past number of weeks several NXT Superstars have been appearing backstage during RAW and SmackDown to take part in either dark matches or Main Event matches. Names such as Scarlett, Shotzi Blackheart, and Toni Storm have previously been reported.
So far the matches that have taken place for the women have been noted as dark matches unlike the men such as NXT Champion Karrion Kross and former NXT North American Champion Bronson Reed who have had matches air on Main Event. The purpose of these matches is said to be checking out the talent as potential call-ups.
Nox has been sidelined for the third time in her career due to an ACL tear. This last injury had Nox written off in a kayfabe storyline by her being attacked by Candice LeRae backstage. She hasn’t been in a match since August.
Speculation has been swirling about Nox’s return to NXT since the “charging battery” vignettes have been airing on the brand. Each week an image of a charging battery heading towards 100% has been shown. It isn’t confirmed just yet that this is Nox but her appearing for this dark match does show that her return is just around the corner.
