Enjoy your stay. With WWE having so many talented wrestlers on its roster, it can be difficult to give them all something to do. In some cases it is rather easy as the bigger stars will always be busy, but there are several names who might have issues getting a storyline going. That is where the size of WWE can be helpful, as they have another place to send some of those wrestlers, which was on display this week.
There were five guest stars from Monday Night Raw this week on NXT. The main event of this week’s show saw NXT Champion Dolph Ziggler, with Robert Roode in his corner, successfully defend his title against Robert Roode. This match was set up by the Miz on a special edition of MizTV. Also on the show, the Mysterios ran into Legado del Fantasma in the back, setting up a Dominik Mysterio victory over Joaquin Wilde. There is nothing to suggest that anyone but Roode or Ziggler will be regulars of any kind on NXT going forward.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can make NXT that much more interesting while also giving the Monday Night Raw stars something to do. The good thing is that these are former World Champions coming down to NXT rather than someone who might get on TV every few weeks. It feels like a big deal rather than someone there because they have nothing else to do. Ziggler and Roode as semi-regulars is a good idea and I’m liking the guest star deal, at least so far.
