WWE’s developmental organization (and one of the best things in wrestling right now) NXT is off on their first international tour in history this week, a trip through the United Kingdom which will culminate in a live TakeOver special from London, England on Wednesday. During the tour, Sami Zayn, who was last seen challenging John Cena during the US Open Challenge on Raw, a match in which he severely injured his shoulder, made his in-ring return after being sidelined for several months. WWE has posted a short video of the crowd reaction to his return, and a picture of Zayn’s new, much shorter haircut.

Zayn faced NXT Champion Finn Balor in his return match, and lost. There are currently no plans for him to wrestle on the live TakeOver special, but he is expected to wrestle in a match that will be taped for the weekly NXT program that will air the following Wednesday.
