• RAW Wrestler Going Back To NXT Under A New Name
Back in May this year, Shane Thorne and Brendan Vink debuted on RAW as a team managed by MVP. They defeated Ricochet and Cedric Alexander in their first match and then disappeared from TV.
Thorne got sent back to NXT and then returned to RAW as SLAPJACK of RETRIBUTION.
On the other hand, Vink hasn’t worked any show since then.
Vink is now returning to NXT under a new name, “Tony Modra”.

FOX Sports Australia noted that this name may be a tribute to Vink’s childhood hero, Tommy Modra, who was an icon in the Australian Football League (AFL) and was a respected figure in Vink’s hometown of Adelaide, Australia.
