WWE went all out for its recent Premium Live Event, Money in the Bank, delivering an exciting spectacle followed by NXT Heatwave. To add to the excitement, a TNA star was spotted backstage during NXT Heatwave.

The NXT Heatwave Premium Live Event took place on July 7 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. There were a variety of things to do throughout the night to keep fans entertained.

TNA Wrestling and WWE have a history of working together and this partnership has been revived since May. Notable appearances include Jordynne Grace on NXT television, Tatum Paxley on Against All Odds and Charlie Dempsey on TNA television.

CM Punk took to his Instagram today and uploaded several photos of himself out and about in Toronto for Money in the Bank and NXT Heatwave. Among the photos was one of him with TNA star Santino Marella, who was also a WWE veteran for several years. His daughter Arianna Grace had a match at Heatwave, so he was likely there to support her. Punk also included photos of Roxanne Perez backstage at Heatwave.

“Photo dump from Toronto. Friends and family edition. Take your ass to Mars.”

In case you didn’t know, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Josh Alexander was also present backstage at Money in the Bank. Either way, NXT Heatwave will be remembered as a memorable event for all the right reasons and that’s all that matters.
