Two Long Awaited Main Roster Debuts
The post-WrestleMania excitement continued on this week’s SmackDown LIVE when NXT superstars Shinsuke Nakamura and Tye Dillinger made their long awaited main roster debuts.
Dillinger who has been trying to catch a break since 2002, responded to an open challenge from Curt Hawkins and quickly put him away. In an emotional Fallout video he said the past 15 years of hard work were worth it for a few minutes on SmackDown.

A slightly more composed Dillinger later appeared on Talking Smack with Renee Young and Shane McMahon.
Shinsuke Nakamura made his debut by interrupting The Miz and Maryse who were continuing their parody of John Cena and Nikki Bella.
The former NXT Champion never got physical on camera, but he did wrestle a dark match against Dolph Ziggler after the show went off air.
