Unmasked Reggie Sheds Scrypts Persona In Return To WWE NXT

Scrypts is no more and Reggie is officially back after the latest episode of "WWE NXT." During the episode, Dabba-Kato defeated Axiom, but after the match, he kept attacking him. An unmasked Reggie helped out Axiom, though Axiom didn't seem to trust him much, since he refused to shake Reggie's hand.


Scrypts and Axiom had been feuding and it was on the May 2 episode of "NXT," when Axiom unmasked Scrypts, revealing what many suspected: that it was the former 24/7 Champion behind the Scrypts' persona. It happened after Axiom defeated him in a match. Reggie first donned the Scrypts gimmick back in October 2022. A month later, he made his "NXT" in-ring debut, where he defeated Guru Raaj.

Reggie debuted in WWE on the main roster as an assistant to former "SmackDown" Women's Champion Carmella. He later moved into storylines with Dana Brooke and went as far as to "marry" her for the now-defunct 24/7 Championship.

Also, during "NXT's" go-home show for Battleground, Lyra Valkyria advanced in the "NXT" Women's Championship tournament after defeating Cora Jade, while Tiffany Stratton advanced in the tournament by defeating former "NXT" Women's Champion Roxanne Perez. The final to decide who will become the new women's champion will happen at Battleground on May 28. The title is currently vacant due to Indi Hartwell's move to the main roster. The show ended with Ilja Dragunov and Dijak signing a contract for their Last Man Standing Match At Battleground. Sunday's event will also see "NXT" Champion Carmelo Hayes defend his title against Bron Breakker.
