Pleasant surprise for WWE fans ahead of Poppy’s NXT return


Poppy returns to NXT with special surprise for fans

Poppy made her return to NXT before “Takeover: In Your House” event this Sunday.

WWE collaborated with the Grammy Award nominee to release a new Poppy x Triple H collection of merchandise. The first release features two t-shirts, namely – The Poppy x Triple H Gold Skull NXT t-shirt and the Poppy x Triple H White Skull NXT t-shirt

WWE Shop commented saying:

“Poppy has joined forces with NXT once again! Commemorate her appearance on June 8, 2021 at the Capitol Wrestling Center with this LIMITED EDITION T-Shirt.”

The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter has featured numerous times for NXT, most recently at NXT : Stand and Deliver in April. Her “Say Cheese” single is the current NXT theme song, which she performed during WrestleMania.

She was rumoured to have a small feud with Tag Team Champions Candic LeRae and Indi Hartwell.

Meanwhile, the company took to social media to alert the WWE Universe about the return of the singer.

Triple H also shared the news and wrote, “You can hear her sound on each episode and next week you can see her.”

Io Shirai Makes long awaited return to NXT

Former NXT champion Io Shirai made her long awaited return to NXT. This is her first appearance after her unfortunate loss at NXT Takeover Stand & Deliver to Raquel Gonzales.

Shirai made her return after Poppy made a return to NXT, much to the dismay of Candice LeRae. LeRae mocked Poppy’s taste in music and wanted her to leave. Poppy retaliated by stating that she isn’t trained to wrestle but has an ally in her who can. Shirai made her swift return after ages, and took LeRae down with her moves.

Shirai’s return could be a good sign for the Tag Team division. The current champs could face a tough defence of their titles if Shirai teams up with one of the best in the roster.

Shirai will also be looking to avenge her loss to Gonzales and getting a shot at her. The likely feuds are in abundance to make a mark in NXT, after a lengthy absence.
