Plans change? We’re less than a month away from NXT’s big move over to the USA Network. With the move comes a lot of changes to NXT, which will include the show expanding to two hours and running live every single week. The changes are likely to switch up a few things around NXT, and it turns out that this includes a specific call up to the main roster.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Shayna Baszler’s call up may be in jeopardy. Baszler, the reigning NXT Women’s Champion, has been rumored for a call up for a long time now and was scheduled to move up in the near future. At the moment, there is no word on if Baszler will still be called up to the main roster, or when that will be the case should she still be called up.

Baszler has faced some competition. Check out her title defense against Ember Moon:

Opinion: This is one of those call ups where I won’t believe it until I see it. Baszler has seemed ready to move up to the main roster for well over a year now and for some reason it just never happens. She is more than ready for the call up but maybe NXT would like to have an established star on its roster for the first show on USA, as they can always use the star power.

Do you think Baszler will be called up? Who takes the title from her? Let us know in the comments below.
