Come on up. WWE has a unique situation with NXT, as it allows the company to have its own in-house developmental territory. That means they can develop and then bring up stars to the main roster without having to sign new wrestlers. It can be interesting to see someone come up and now we might be seeing someone do just that, albeit in a different role.
According to Fightful Select, LA Knight is officially done with NXT and is now part of the main roster. This comes after Knight has been working as a manager in dark segments before SmackDown and has since signed Mansoor and Mace to his stable. There is no word on when the team will make its television debut. Knight last wrestled in NXT at Stand & Deliver on April 1 in a loss to Gunther.
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise but it is nice to see that Knight’s tryout seemed to go well. Knight is someone who could be a big star on the main roster and the good thing is that he could be switched into a wrestling role if necessary. I’m not sure when he is going to move up to the main roster but he has a good chance of being a success and that would be nice to see.
What do you think of Knight? Who else would you like to see join his stable? Let us know in the comments below.
