Go Backstage AT Kushida’s NXT Debut

The WWE Performance Center YouTube has posted a behind the scenes clip that documents Kushida’s NXT debut from behind the curtain. Kushida meets with several other NXT superstars that he met on the independent circuit. In particular, he talks with the War Raiders, who tell a story about Kushida welcoming them to Japan during their first tour of the country. Now, the Viking duo gets to return the favor before they set sail to the main roster.
