You have to keep the shelved stocked. With so many places to wrestle under the WWE umbrella today, the company has to keep things moving. You can’t leave the same wrestlers having the same matches over and over again, meaning some things need to change from time to time. That means occasionally bringing in some new wrestlers, which is what WWE has done.
WWE has a lot of different television shows with a lot of different rosters at various times. Some of these are a lot more successful than others, but one of the newer ones is doing rather well. That would be NXT UK, which recently went to a tie with NXT at the Worlds Collide special. It is clear that things are picking up for the show and now they have some fresh blood.
As announced on WWE.com, five new talents have been signed to NXT UK. These names include the tag team of Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker and Lewis Howley), Candy Floss, Dani Luna and Levi Muir. Stoker, Howley and Floss have all appeared on NXT UK before, though mainly as enhancement talents. There is no word on when they will be making the debuts as regular wrestlers on the show.
You might have seen them before. Check out some of the new names in action:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that WWE has to do every so often and it helps to keep the shows feeling fresh. These names might not be the biggest stars in the world at the moment, though you never know where they might wind up in the end. That’s one of the things that makes wrestling so much fun and hopefully we get to see them showcase themselves on the big stage sooner rather than later.
