This is only a rumor, so take it for what its worth. It’s no secret that ever since NXT started going live on the USA Network on Wednesday evenings, they have been featured more prominently on WWE programming.
However, they may get an opportunity to be featured on the biggest stage of them all.
According to a Tweet from Wrestlevotes, NXT will have a role on the actual WrestleMania card and not just a Takeover event that weekend. It is unknown at this time what exactly the role will be.
Heard from a well placed source, as of now, NXT will have a role at WrestleMania. Not talking about TakeOver, but on the actual Mania card. No details as to who or what, but an NXT presence will be felt at Raymond James Stadium.

If we get more of this, I’m all about it:
Finn Balor will challenge Adam Cole for the NXT Championship on next week’s show, after winning a No. 1 Contenders match this week.
This doesn’t surprise me at all, and I would love to see an NXT match on the WrestleMania card. That said, you could also make the argument that putting a match on the main show diminishes the concept of the Takeover events. Either way, I would love to see it!
