NXT North American Champion Dragon Lee linked up with the LWO on NXT television last week in setting up a six-man tag team match against the No Quarter Catch Crew for this week’s show. However, visa issues prevented him from leaving Mexico and he had to miss the “New Year’s Evil” special.
He did promise a surprise in his place. Speculation quickly turned to a big name like Andrade making his return to the company for a special appearance but WWE went in another direction.
And did something cool.
Indeed, Carlito made a special appearance to team with Joaquin Wilde and Cruz Del Toro in what turned out to be an incredibly fun match against Drew Gulak, Damon Kemp, and Myles Borne. In the end, Del Toro pinned Kemp after Carlito hit the back cracker.
