Oh my. Over the last two months, WWE has hyped up the debut of Lars Sullivan. The monster from NXT was first announced all the way back at Survivor Series but as we approach the Royal Rumble, there has been no sign of him. It’s certainly common for WWE to change their mind about a debut and delay things, but it seems that there’s something a little different this time.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, Sullivan never showed up to last week’s Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live tapings in Florida despite being scheduled to be there. At the moment, there is no reason for Sullivan’s absence. Last week, it was reported that Sullivan may have been John Cena’s WrestleMania 35 opponent. With this new development, those plans may be up in the air.
Following up on this story with new details;, source tells us Lars Sullivan did not go home from TV this week, he was never in either Orlando or Jacksonville. Was scheduled to be, and just didn’t arrive. No word on what the reaction was just yet. https://t.co/07WLmvjWHt

This is what the main roster might be missing. Check out what seems to be Sullivan’s last NXT match:
Opinion: I’m not sure what’s up with Sullivan but no showing the tapings is a hard thing to shake off. I’m not saying Sullivan is at fault of course because we don’t know what happened, but that’s not the best thing in the world to do. There’s a good chance that this is going to cost him his chance, which is a shame as he could be a heck of a monster with the right push.
What do you think of Sullivan? Will he ever debut on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
