Shane Thorne has come a long way — from Perth, Western Australia, to be precise — to make it to NXT, and the path was anything but easy. Thankfully for the hard-hitting, quick-witted Superstar, he didn’t come alone.

Alongside trusted ally and fellow Aussie Nick Miller, Thorne spent years competing in tag ranks around the world, from Down Under to The Land of the Rising Sun, with the goal of one day becoming a WWE Superstar. Together, he and Miller captured tag titles wherever they went, and their natural talent earned praise from even the most hard-to-please critics. (When WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race goes knocking on the doors of WWE officials advocating on your behalf, you know you’ve done something right.)

In May 2016, under the name TM61, Thorne & Miller stormed NXT to much fanfare, and it didn’t take long for the NXT Universe to see what the hype was all about. Within months, they rose up the black-and-yellow brand’s Tag Team division, and they even advanced to the finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Memorial in their first year in NXT.

Though a devastating leg injury sidelined Thorne for much of 2017, he and Miller returned with a bang in 2018. More aggressive and, dare we say, mightier than before, TM61 are once again poised to take over NXT’s Tag Team division.
