NXT Stars Will Continue To Be Called Up To Main Roster



Given as WWE NXT is now moving from the network to being its own two-hour show on the USA Network, there has been some speculation that superstars on the yellow-and-black brand will no longer be subject to “call-ups” to the main roster.

NXT tends to still be regarded as WWE’s developmental show where new and upcoming superstars are trained and groomed for the main roster. Among other current main roster superstars who developed their characters and a fan following are the current RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins, and Intercontinental Champions Shinsuke Nakamura.

There has been some talk that the move to USA Network would mean that the NXT roster would be more on an even footing with Raw and SmackDown – meaning that there would be more interest in keeping talent on NXT instead of calling them up. However, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, that won’t be the case.

WWE still plans to call up NXT talent to eventually work on Raw and SmackDown even after NXT premiers on television, states a report from Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

While there is no word on when the next round of call-ups will be, and who they might be, it’s probably safe to speculate that at least a few NXT talent will move to either Raw or SmackDown on October.

As we previously reported, a WWE Draft is set to take place in October. The draft, which usually results in a few established superstars moving from Raw to SmackDown and vice versa, also usually sees a few NXT talent called up and announced for either of the main rosters.
