Hurry up and slow down. NXT has become one of the most well received wrestling shows in all of the world today as they do all kinds of things that fans seem to enjoy. With so much that they have going on, it is clear that NXT has a lot of talent and can present some exciting television. A lot of this comes from their wrestlers, but sometimes those wrestlers get called up to the main roster. However, you might not have noticed this time around.
Over the last few months, WWE has had to change all kinds of things about the way their content has been presented. The Coronavirus pandemic has caused a series of adjustments that need to be made, primarily with regards to available talent. Some wrestlers are not exactly thrilled with coming down to Orlando, Florida for television shows, and it turns out that someone’s big break has been heavily delayed.
According to Fightful Select, NXT star Vanessa Borne was called up to the main roster in either late January or early February but has yet to actually appear on either show. Borne has since moved and has not come to Orlando for any television tapings. Her situation is said to be the same as that of Riddick Moss, who was called up but was forced onto the sidelines due to a combination of the Coronavirus and Paul Heyman being removed as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw. It is not clear when Borne will debut on either Monday Night Raw or SmackDown.
Borne has done some good work in NXT. Check out what the main roster is getting:
Opinion: This is one of those callups that seems a little confusing on the surface as Borne was never quite a top star in NXT. However, she has been around for a long time now and if she is never going to be a top star in NXT, they might as well move her up to the main roster for the sake of some fresh blood on the lower half of the card. I’m not sure if Borne is ever going to break through to the top of the card, but at least she would be something new, which is a necessary thing.
Has Borne impressed you? Where should she go? Let us know in the comments below.
