A new triple threat? One of the most fascinating parts about NXT is seeing who will be called up to the main roster. There are so many wrestlers in the developmental system that occasionally some names need to make a move up. That can present a few complications as WWE has to figure out how to use these NXT talents. Now, they might need to keep track of three at once.
There have been a few names either confirmed or rumored to be coming up to the main roster in recent weeks, with Matt Riddle confirmed to SmackDown and Dominik Dijakovic rumored for Monday Night Raw. Those are two big names in the first place, but they aren’t the only people who might be making the jump. Three more are rumored to go up, and one might surprise you.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, WWE has discussed bringing both Io Shirai and Velveteen Dream up to the main rosters. Both are scheduled for title matches on Sunday at Takeover: In Your House, with Dream’s match being a Last Chance match. This comes a day after WrestleTalk reported that Chelsea Green may be called up as well. There is no word on where the three will wind up on the main roster.
They’re all very talented. Check out the three in action:
Opinion: That’s quite the collection of talent but I’m not sure how well the three of them would do on the main roster. Shirai is an incredible performer but I’m not sure how strong she would be pushed. Green has amazing presence and would get over on charisma alone but she might get caught in the pack of either women’s division. Finally there’s Dream, who is one of the most unique stars in a long time, but how much could WWE screw him up?
Which of these three would be the most successful? Who is in the most danger on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
