The first NXT Breakout Tournament took place in 2019 and consisted of Dexter Lumis, current North American Champion Bronson Reed, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Cameron Grimes, Angel Garza, Joaquin Wilde, ACH and Boa.
ACH, the former “Jordan Myles” was the winner of the tournament and he went to challenge Adam Cole for the NXT Championship.
When they reminded viewers of the previous Breakout Tournament on last night’s show, they obviously didn’t mention Jordan Myles (poor guy), but they didn’t mention Boa either, and he very much has a role on the show.
Not sure who the participants could be in this, as there have been so many recent signees that haven’t debuted yet. I know Joe Gacy is there, and I believe they still have Josh Briggs and Harlem Bravado under contract. That Parker Boudroux (sp?) dude may be too early to be featured.
I just read that the Breakout Tournament is starting tomorrow night on 205 Live. Joe Gacy and Harlem Bravado are indeed in it, with Gacy taking on Desmond Troy, and Bravado, now going by Andre Chase, taking on Guru Raaj, an Indian signee who wrestled Finn Balor on that Superstar Spectacle special.
