Sha Samuels was in action on the 1/14 episode of NXT UK on the WWE Network. His first TV match for the brand was against Joe Coffey and Samuels donned the name “Ed Harvey”. Joe Coffey emerged victorious from the match but during their bout, Samuels grabbed the microphone and stated that he’s not “Ed Harvey” and everyone knows that he’s Sha Samuels.
Following the airing of NXT UK, Samuels took to Twitter and announced that he has officially signed with WWE. Samuels returned to wrestling during the pandemic in November for Revolution Pro Wrestling. He has been a part of ICW’s Fight Club tapings as well.
