Maybe not. We are less than forty days away from WrestleMania 37 and that means it is time to start getting the card together. Things are a little out of the ordinary this year though as, just like last year, the show is going to be held over two nights instead of just one. That is a good thing as the show gets to breathe a bit, though now we have an idea of what not to expect.
Part of the problem with having a two night event like this is filling in all of the time. With so much air time, it can be a bit difficult to get everything filled in, but that is where the company’s huge roster can be such an asset. WWE has more than enough talent to fill things in, which means a few people will not be needed. Now we know who some of those unnecessary people are.
According to Wrestling Daily by way of WrestleTalk, there will be no NXT stars or matches taking place at WrestleMania 37. NXT matches had been hinted at for the show but nothing has ever been announced. This comes after Rhea Ripley lost the NXT Women’s Title to Charlotte at WrestleMania 36. There is no word on NXT running a Takeover event over WrestleMania weekend, which did not take place last year either.
NXT has been around on the main rosters before. Check out some of their cameos:
Opinion: I’m not sure what to think about this, as the idea of NXT being a featured match on WrestleMania makes sense but I would also like to see them getting their own place to shine rather than being guest stars. Granted that is easier said than done when there is no Takeover planned, but I’m sure NXT will have their own chance one day. Just make it happen sooner rather than later.
