Come on up? NXT is in a weird place in the wrestling world as they have to find a way to balance out being its own show and WWE developmental. In some way is a good thing to see wrestlers leaving NXT for greener pastures but that can be a big hit to NXT every time. Now that might be the case again but even worse than usual as WWE might be calling up two names.
According to Fightful Select, WWE is considering calling up LA Knight and Raquel Gonzalez. Knight is considered less of a likelihood, though there is a chance that he could be called up as a manager due to his talking abilities. Gonzalez has been expected to be called up for several months now. She and Dakota Kai lost the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles to Toxic Attraction earlier this week. Knight did not appear on the show.
Opinion: I don’t think either of these is a surprise as Gonzalez and Knight both seem to have been ready for the main roster for a LONG time now. They both look like main roster stars and aren’t going to get much more out of being in NXT. Let them come up and showcase themselves, as the main roster could use some new hands. Knight is older in the first place so get what you can out of him in the limited time available.
What do you think of the possible callups? Which of the two would have more success? Let us know in the comments below.
