The monster among us. On Sunday at Survivor Series, a video aired showing that Lars Sullivan was coming up to the main roster from NXT. It wasn’t clear whether Sullivan would be appearing on either Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live, though either way it was obvious that he was going to wreck havoc. Now, we might know just how much havoc that might include.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Sullivan is in line for a big push when he reaches the main roster. At the moment, it isn’t known which brand Sullivan will appear on or who he will be feuding with first, but he was pushed as a nearly unstoppable monster in NXT and a similar push should be expected on the main roster. Sullivan is scheduled to face Keith Lee on this week’s NXT in what could be his last match on the brand.

That monster is scary.

Roderick Strong vs. Lars Sullivan: WWE NXT, Dec. 20, 2017

Opinion: Sullivan may not be one of a kind, but he’s a few of a kind at worst. He’s got an incredible look and is crazy strong, but can also give a very well read promo. I’m not sure how long he’ll be able to survive as a top star, though there’s certainly enough potential there for at least a short term push. Just let him do what he did in NXT and everything should be fine.

What do you think of Sullivan? What could he do on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
