This week’s episode of WWE NXT had a big debut in Harland who was also touted as a Brock Lesnar-lookalike for the past few months. This was a squash match against Guru Raaj that also appeared to be Harland’s first pro wrestling match. Previously, he used to be known as Parker Bordreaux who used to play college football.

During the match on WWE NXT, Raaj put up some offense but Harland dominated the bout, as Joe Gacy watched from ringside. Harland unloaded with strikes and then delivered a huge back suplex into a powerslam for the pin to get an easy win.

After the match, Gacy asked Harland if he was feeling better, but Harland shook his head signaling a no. Harland then went back into the ring and slammed Raaj’s face into the mat a few more times. Officials rushed the ring to stop Harland but only Harland only listened to Gacy before making his exit.

Rapper and a pro wrestling fan Westside Gunn was sitting at ringside for the Harland vs. Raaj match. The announcers noted how Gunn came to WWE NXT just to witness the in-ring debut of Harland.

A few moments later on WWE NXT, another backstage segment aired where officials and security were trying to get Harland to leave the show. Harland then grabbed WWE Coach/Producer and the former Cruiserweight Champion Brian Kendrick and tossed him down a flight of steps.

Officials tended to Kendrick while Gacy and Harland watched from the stairs. Vic Joseph later informed on commentary that the veteran Kendrick was taken to a local hospital who could possibly have a possible cervical fracture.
