Kona Reeves Debuts on NXT, Ellsworth on Jericho Cruise, XFL News

WWE is constantly pushing the best talent and athletes that it can find on their NXT brand, and it looks like a Performance Center standout has arrived on NXT for good. After weeks of vignettes hyping up the arrival of “The Finest” Kona Reeves, the Samoan superstar made his in-ring debut under his new character on NXT last night. He defeated an enhancement talent by the name of Patrick Scott in a short and decisive fashion after pinning him with a Samoan Drop. Now that Kona Reeves has arrived in NXT, he will certainly have plenty of competition eager to meet him, but perhaps the young wrestler will be able to emerge as a future champion in NXT and WWE one day.

Very few could have predicted or have been prepared for Vince McMahon’s major announcement earlier this year wherein he declared the the XFL would be returning in 2020. Work on the revival of the football league has been underway ever since, and it looks like the location for one of the teams may have been selected. According to the Orlando Sentinel, McMahon has proposed placing an XFL team in the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. McMahon’s rivaling football league, Charlie Ebersol’s Alliance of American Football, also just announced that they will be coaching their own Florida team in the University of Central Florida’s Spectrum Stadium.
