Hank Walker, an NXT security guard who has been butting heads with Big Body Javi over the past few weeks, had his in-ring debut on NXT 2.0 this week. Walker got an impressive win and the NXT crowd was ecstatic. Now he was offered an NXT contract.
WWE released a behind-a-scenes video of Walker and friends on the security team celebrating his big win. Meanwhile, Shawn Michaels rewarded that by offering Hank an official NXT contract.
“Congratulations, big win. I’d like to take the time to offer you an official NXT contract. Of course, sign it whenever you want,” Michaels said to Walker.
Bernal then interrupted and said, “You know what, Hank? Tonight was a fluke, alright? Consider yourself lucky.”
Michaels then looked at Bernal and laughed, “What a prick!”

He made his in-ring debut against Von Wagner with a loss at the June 11 NXT live event in Largo, then lost against Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo on the July 1 NXT Level Up episode, and took another loss to Giovanni Vinci at the July 9 live event in Orlando, following another defeat to Duke Hudson on the July 22 NXT Level Up episode and failed to defeat Carmelo Hayes at the August 29 live event in Venice.
