During tonight’s episode of NXT, Jordan Devlin appeared in a taped segment to reveal that he would be making his return to the world of NXT next week, and will be showing Santos Escobar who the real NXT Cruiserweight Champion is. 

In a video message that appeared during tonight’s episode, Devlin said that he thinks it’s time for a change of scenery, and said that with the biggest TakeOver set to take place next month, it wouldn’t be right if the real Cruiserweight Champion wasn’t there. Devlin then mentioned that his travel ban was lifted today, so next week he’ll be at NXT in order to pay Santos Escobar a visit, with the camera panning away to reveal that Devlin was already at the airport. 

Devlin initially won the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at World Collide, and has held the title for 411 days. Escobar won the interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament after Devlin was forced to stay in the UK during the COVID-19 pandemic, and has held onto his belt for 288 days.
