After being out of action since late 2020, Ridge Holland returned to NXT TV.
Kicking off the 7/27 episode of NXT on Syfy was a tag match between the duos of Pete Dunne and Oney Lorcan along with Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher. As Thatcher and Ciampa were gaining control of the match, Ridge Holland made his return and took out Thatcher on the outside.
This led to Ciampa being rolled up by Pete Dunne for the three count. Holland then joined Dunne and Lorcan for a post-match attack of Ciampa and Thatcher.

This past October, Ridge suffered an ankle dislocation and patellar tendon rupture. Holland also dislocated his knee but his knee was put back in place at the ringside area and his ankle was put back in place once he arrived at the hospital.
The injury occurred when Oney Lorcan attempted to hit a crossbody onto Holland and Holland’s weight shifted back and his foot was horizontal as Lorcan’s weight came down on him.
