After losing to AEW in the Wednesday Night War, WWE’s “third brand”, NXT, underwent a revamp, and on Tuesday, they debuted NXT 2.0. The rebranding saw WWE update NXT’s logo, colors, and set. The show also went younger and many new wrestlers debuted.

The wrestler is an Italian wannabe with apparent family connections to the mob. His name is Tony D’Angelo. And you guys, he’s kind of an ass.
