WWE is on the verge of repackaging another NXT 2.0 wrestler, with the former A-Kid seemingly the subject of a vignette during last night's Great American Bash special.

Although A-Kid's face wasn't revealed, NXT 2.0's latest gimmick, Axiom, likely belongs to the Spaniard, given his build and voice. It looks like he is being given a character built around mathematics, which he claims to have used to solve problems throughout his life, using his mind to prevail when his body fails him.

The former A-Kid, 25, debuted for NXT's American imprint on 2.0's 15 March episode, where he defeated Kushida. A three-show run concluded in a failed attempt at re-entering North American Championship contention on 29 March, with A-Kid returning to Europe to face Charlie Dempsey in an NXT UK match taped on 21 April. Now, it appears he is heading back to the United States on a full-time basis.

A-Kid becoming Axiom is likely down to the wrestler's use of his old ring name on the independent scene prior to signing with WWE. The promotion has been making a habit of this in recent months, renaming wrestlers so that it may own the relevant trademarks.
