WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins just dropped the ball on which NXT stars, according to him, would steal the spotlight on the main roster.
Rollins cemented himself as the first-ever NXT Champion and was later on discovered alongside Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose in the early stages of WWE’s developmental system. The trio then went on to make their main roster debut, establishing one the hottest faction in WWE history, The Shield.
In a recent interview with Al Arabiya English, The Kingslayer discussed several professional wrestling topics, NXT being one of them. The former WWE Champion was asked about which star(s) on the current NXT roster has/have the potential to make it big on the main roster.
Rollins said, “There’s a ton of guys down there with absolutely incredible potential. Shayna Baszler is one of those people who I never got a chance to watch that much, but I saw her on the NXT show last Sunday and I was blown away. I think she’s fantastic.”
“I think Velveteen Dream is really good—he’s got something wacky about him. I’ve always been a fan of Ricochet. I’ve known him since he was a 17-year-old kid from Paducah, Kentucky. I’ve always thought the world of him and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does in the future
“The whole Undisputed Era, I think those guys are fantastic. I think there’s a lot of talent down in NXT that has the chance to make waves when they move up to the main roster.”
It’s no secret that Rollins is one of the biggest stars with NXT origin. So is Reigns and Ambrose.
Rollins and Ambrose renewed their feud, this time with greater intensity and depth, two weeks ago on Monday Night RAW. The Lunatic Fringe turned heel and assaulted The Kingslayer after winning the RAW Tag Team Championship in the main event.
