Last week’s WWE NXT Live Events featured a couple of main roster talents, an initiative by WWE which was well received by fans in attendance.

Monday Night RAW’s Tyler Breeze, who is one half of Breezango, defeated Marcel Barthel at the show in Jacksonville, Florida while The Revival appeared on the Live Events to wrestle The Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly Roderick Strong) in Oklahoma City on Thursday. Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson returned on Friday Night to square off against The Forgotten Sons (Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake) in Dallas and again faced The Undisputed Era in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday night.

Although there is no particular word on why WWE sent main roster talent to NXT Live Events, it is speculated that the lack of plans/storylines on part of the Creative for the European Tour allowed the company to make such move. It is to be noted that the Locker Room on both Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live is over-saturated and it is impossible for the Creative to have every talent appear on the show every week.

Since the switch to dual-branded Pay-Per-Views, it has become even harder for WWE to feature the entire main roster talent on Pay-Per-View events. The WWE Universe prefers compact Pay-Per-Views that stretch to a maximum of 3 hours (except big events like WrestleMania, Royal Rumble) and making lengthy PPVs will be a gamble that the company is afraid to step on.

With over 110 Superstars on the main roster, WWE plans to do whatever possible, via multi-person matches and house shows to at least have a major portion of its talent featured without comprising the matches on the upper card. The Elias segment at WWE Backlash has turned out to be an ideal example for the company to get some names on the show and allow them to be a part of the Pay-Per-View payday.
