Former WCW star and current NXT coach Norman Smiley made an appearance during a recent altercation involving Bron Breakker and Grayson Waller at the WWE Performance Center.
Smiley has been with WWE since 2007, which was the same year he wrestled his final match on an episode of Sunday Night Heat. A former two-time WCW Hardcore Champion, Smiley began making on-screen appearances for FCW in 2010, a promotion that would serve as the company's developmental before NXT.
In the video, Smiley can be seen berating Grayson Waller for throwing a water bottle at Breakker, a move that fell on deaf ears. Despite his best efforts, he was unable to stop the two men from clashing and joined several NXT recruits in trying to break up the brawl.
