WWE NXT Stars Set to Appear on This Week’s SmackDown

This week’s episode of SmackDown has a lot to live up to after Monday Night Raw set the bar last night, and according to Fightful, there could be two interesting debuts.

The site reports that NXT stars Danny Burch and Killian Dain could be set to be called up to the main roster on this week’s episode of the show.

The two stars were originally part of a storyline involving King Corbin and Shorty G who have seemingly teamed together as of late in their feud with Matt Riddle.

Danny Burch has already made a number of appearances on the main roster but has never officially been called up, while Killian Dain was part of Sanity a few years ago but was sent back down to NXT after the group went their separate ways with only Nikki Cross remaining on the main roster.

The report goes on to note that the original plan was to film more than one episode of the show, but it was only one episode of SmackDown and one episode of 205 Live that was pre-recorded at that time.

This means that while Dain and Burch were set to be part of the show, Burch could have been relegated to an appearance on 205 Live instead and their debut may be delayed until next week.
