NXT Stars Headed To WWE Main Roster
During last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW an announcement was made that several NXT stars will be called up t to the main roster soon.
The WWE aired a promo graphic indicating that Lars Sullivan, Lacey Evans, Heavy Machinery, and Nikki Cross will be arriving soon. According to Bryan Alvarez on this afternoon’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, the call-up announcement was simply pushed forward from original plans.
Alvarez states that the original plan was to have these call ups around Royal Rumble. Lars Sullivan was already announced, and Nikki Cross has been tested on live events, but reportedly it was something already in the works for the remaining NXT stars.
There has been some speculation that additional names may be listed tonight on Smackdown LIVE, but according To John Pollock of POST Wrestling the six names announced last night are the only names being called up.
The WWE wanted to keep a lot of top stars around in NXT to continue to draw on live events.
