With WrestleMania here, one of the things every year that fans have come to expect from the WWE is the eventual call up of NXT talent to join the main WWE rosters on RAW and SmackDown, and now 205 Live. The dates and shows after WrestleMania are sometimes just as exciting and shocking as the main event itself and the people called up to the main roster are usually some of the fan favorites from NXT. And this year I am super excited to see which NXT Superstars will be called up to the roster. I have my suspicions about who may be called up to the main roster but I also have some personal favorites that I would like to see called up as well. And while I would love to see Aleister Black, I still think that he has a lot of potential down in NXT and I think that he could carry that brand for quite a while. So, the following six entries are the most likely that I believe will get called up and as well as the ones that I would like to see.
Caution!!! Spoilers Ahead!!! You Have Been Warned!!!
Andrade “Cien” Almas
Now that Andrade “Cien” Almas has lost the NXT Championship, I believe that he is going to get called up to the main roster and become a new and exciting addition to either RAW or SmackDown. He has the charisma, he has the talent, and he will also be bringing with him his business manager Zelina Vega with him to complete the package.
Authors of Pain
Akam & Rezar have dominated the tag team division down in NXT for a long while now and I would like to see them come up and start messing with the other tag teams on the main roster. To have them come up and immediately run like hell through the tag teams on RAW and SmackDown is something I have been looking forward to for a long time now.
The Iconic Duo
Billie Kay & Peyton Royce have been ready for the main roster for some time now. And with their return as imminent as can be, I think it would be wiser for them to return to the WWE on RAW or SmackDown than head back down to NXT. They’re both capable wrestlers, beautiful women, and fun on the microphone… pretty much everything they need to rise up to the occasion.
I thought it was a mistake when Drew McIntyre was released from the WWE back in 2014. But then I saw what he did on the independents and on TNA and watching him grow as a performer was amazing. Then he returned to the WWE on NXT and showed off even more talent before getting hurt… oh man, now I just want to see him return to the main roster once again.
With her recent loss of the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, Ember Moon is ready to move up to the main roster. She’s been ready for a while, but she was there to carry the women’s division after Asuka was called up to the main roster. Now it’s time for her to move up to RAW or SmackDown and show the whole WWE Universe what she is capable of.
Eric Young, Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe & Nikki Cross are the kind of stable that the WWE main roster needs to bring some added excitement and variety to RAW and SmackDown. For that reason alone, I would like to see them come up to the main roster. But their unique look and talent in the ring and on the mic are the main reasons why these four competitors need to get called up and need to get called up now.
