WWE SmackDown Drafts NXT Star Ridge Holland

Ridge Holland joined the likes of NXT stars Xia Li and the members of Hit Row when he heard his name called during the WWE Draft.

WWE SmackDown selected Holland, who has been working alongside Pete Dunne in recent weeks on NXT, on the second night of the WWE Draft.

Holland missed nine months when he suffered several injuries in a freak accident on the October 7, 2020 episode of WWE NXT; a dislocated ankle and fracture in his left leg and a dislocated knee patellar dislocation and ruptured patellar tendon in his right leg put him on the shelf, but he returned on the July 27, 2021 episode. Since then, he has been featured on the show, so his call-up through the draft isn’t all that surprising.
