That, and all the highlights from the Feb. 7 episode of Fallout of Vengeance.

When WWE announced that its NXT UK brand was on hiatus last summer, members of that London-based roster who had been kept on the payroll began showing up in Florida and working for the developmental program’s flagship show on Tuesday nights.

In the months following the unification of the two brands’ titles in September Worlds collide It happened, however, that a number of those talents stopped appearing on NXT. But over the past several weeks, many have returned — like new crown champion Gallus.

Reportedly, many of these absences were due to visa issues. It seems like those issues have mostly been dealt with now, and the February 7 edition of NXT proved that. Recently returned Tyler Bate threw a challenge to the “suspended” Grayson Waller. Ilja Dragunov made his first appearance since Halloween Havoc to start a new chapter in his rivalry with JD McDonagh. And although she didn’t appear on camera this week, legend Meiko Satomura will be on hand next week to connect with NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez.

All of this makes for a very crowded list as we head into April 1st Stand and delivery Happened – and this is before another international superstar emerged once his visa status cleared. Will the former NXT UK Superstars head to NXT Europe when that happens? Should we expect recalls or releases?

Maybe questions for another day. For now, enjoy this playlist of Dragunov’s comeback, Perez’s announcement, and all the video highlights and fallout from last night’s show:
