They have their eye on her. With so many wrestlers on the WWE roster, it can be difficult to figure out a way to make themselves stand out. There are a few ways to get such attention in a good way and sometimes it can be quite the success. That seems to be the case again with a relatively new NXT star and now the higher ups in the company are seeing something in them too.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, WWE may be high on NXT’s Nikkita Lyons. This comes after Lyons has been presented as a star in the women’s division, including being featured both in the ring and in backstage segments. She is also set to work with Natalya, who is in NXT to help build up women who WWE sees as future stars on the main roster.

Opinion: This is something that should not be the biggest surprise and that is not a bad thing. At the end of the day, Lyons is a very unique looking star and someone who has all of the potential you could ask for. I could see Lyons becoming a star sooner rather than later and that is a good sign for her future. That is of course assuming WWE doesn’t change their minds all over again.

What do you think of Lyons? How well will she do on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
