That’s a big turn. WWE has a lot of wrestlers under its banner, to the point where many of them wrestle on different unique brands. It keeps things from getting a bit too hectic, but sometimes changes do need to be made. Wrestlers do occasionally move to and from a roster and now we might be getting ready to see that again, as a new stipulation has been set for a big match.
This week on NXT UK, a contract signing took place for the May 12 United Kingdom Title match between champion Ilja Dragunov and challenger Jordan Devlin. During the signing, a new stipulation was announced, saying that the loser of the match would lose NXT UK. There is no word on what will happen to the loser or where they will be heading next, either in or out of WWE.
Opinion: That is quite the change of pace and I’m not sure how this is going to go. While I can’t imagine Dragunov losing the title, I can’t imagine either of them leaving NXT UK. What worries me is that one of them would head over to regular NXT, which is a hit or miss prospect at best. It would be nice to see either of them move up, but I’m almost scared to know what that could mean.
What do you think of the stipulation? Who do you see going where? Let us know in the comments below.
