WWE NXT

What's the story?

WWE NXT star Dominik Dijakovic made a quick impact on the Wednesday night brand when he made his television debut, but shortly into his run, he suffered an injury which sidelined him from in-ring action.

According to F4WOnline.com, Dijakovic made his return to the ring at the WWE NXT live event on Saturday night in Cocoa, FL and picked up a singles match win.

In case you didn't know...

Back in April of this year, Dijakovic suffered a torn meniscus and in early May underwent surgery to repair the injury. Before the injury, Dijakovic had been gaining momentum in NXT and was in contention for a shot at the NXT North American Title.

The heart of the matter

Dominik Dijakovic returned to the ring at Saturday night's NXT live event in Cocoa, FL and scored a singles match win over Cezar Bononi.

Also at Saturday night's NXT live event, Tyler Breeze defeated Dexter Lumis, Bronson Reed defeated Cal Bloom, Bianca Belair defeated Kavita Devi, Killian Dain defeated Babatunde, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch defeated Dorian Mak and Riddick Moss, and Shane Thorne and Brendan Vink defeated Team 3.0.

Team 3.0 is the team squashed by NXT newcomer Jordan Omogbehin, a 7'3" former college basketball player who made his in-ring debut earlier this week.

The NXT live event on Saturday night also featured Mia Yim and Karen Q vs Aliyah and Vanessa Borne vs Marina Shafir and Taynara Conti vs Rachael Evers and Deonna Purrazzo. The team of Yim and Karen Q won the Fatal Four Way tag team bout.
