NXT stars set to be called up following WrestleMania XXXI

Published Add your comment

The Raw after WrestleMania has become famous as one of the best Raw's of the year and this is mainly because NXT talents make their debut following the ending of WrestleMania season.

Last year, Paige headlined the transitions with the most successful debut as she pinned AJ Lee for the Divas Championship.

It seems this year will see much of the same with superstars like Sami Zayn, Charlotte, Adrian Neville and shockingly Finn Balor topping the list. 

Sami Zayn is currently embroiled in a bitter rivalry with long time friend Kevin Owens after Owens defeated him for the NXT Championship at NXT Takeover: Rival. It is thought that this feud could continue for the next few weeks before Zayn receives the call up. 

Charlotte dropped her title to Sasha Banks at the same event and it seems that the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is ready for her main roster debut as she looks set to redefine the divas division.

The man the gravity forgot also lost his match at NXT Takeover as he was defeated by Fnn Balor for the number one contender-ship to Kevin Owen's title. It has been in the pipeline for Adrian Neville to be called up to the main roster for a while, but the problem seems to be deciding on a gimmick for the Newcastle native. 

The one shock to come out of these findings is Finn Balor, formerly known as Prince Devitt on the independent scene, Balor has only been with WWE since the Summer and didn't make his NXT debut until the fall, but it seems he has caught the eye of someone in a powerful position. 

Vince McMahon seems really keen to see Balor brought up to the main roster, but the biggest reason for the sudden call up seems to be the fact that the painted superstar is currently 33-years-old and WWE know that the time is now with him, because they cannot afford to wait. 

Hideo Itami is also a name floating around right now because he found fame under the name of Kenta and also has limited time much like Balor, but the issue right now is that WWE don't know where the Japanese superstar will fit in on the main roster.
