Our initial excitement about his (very pro wrestling) WWE name notwithstanding, we’re trying not to set our expectations too high for NXT’s Tank Ledger.
But it’s not easy when, in just his second match on the NXT brand’s flagship show, he does stuff like this.

Ledger had just taken a Josh Briggs boot to the face before he spit out a loose tooth, tucked it in his singlet, and used that to fire himself up. Sure, the comeback was short-lived. And, no, we can’t be sure this wasn’t something they planned so folks like me would share the clip. But that’s not going to stop the momentum on this Tank.
