Neville compares NXT to the main roster

Published Add your comment

NXT and the WWE main roster have arguably never been closer with stars like Kevin Owens, Neville and several of the diva's working on both simultaneously.

2015 has seen the NXT Champion take on the United States Champion and the Diva's Champion take on the NXT Women's Champion and each has been an great match.

The step up

One man who made the step up following WrestleMania XXXI was the formerly known Adrian Neville who has been on the main roster now for several months.

During his time here, Neville has taken on WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins on more than one occasion.

Neville is still the longest reigning NXT Champion and he can be considered to be a great inside voice on the difference between the brand in Orlando and the main roster.

Speaking with WWE.com, Neville has talked about the differences between the main roster and developmental down on NXT.

"Up here I'd say the main difference is the size of the competitors, guys are much bigger and they hit much harder up here and that's something that I'm trying to adjust to."

Neville can probably be forgiven for overlooking NXT superstars like Rhyno, Baron Corbin and Samoa Joe since he wasn't there when two of them debuted.

With the likes of John Cena, Brock Lesnar and former NXT Champion Big E on the main roster however, they do appear to have the edge in the battle of the big men.

Despite giving the bigger hits and superstars to the main roster, Neville did however insist that the difference between NXT and the main roster isn't that big.

Neville is currently preparing for his first ever appearance at Summer Slam as he teams up  with Stephen Amell to take on Stardust and King Barrett.

A big week ahead

It is a big week for both NXT and the WWE as Summer Slam takes place in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday night while NXT Takeover Brooklyn happens the night before on Saturday.

Each has a huge match as it's main event with Kevin Owens challenging Finn Balor for the NXT Championship in a ladder match and The Undertaker returning to face Brock Lesnar.

It is set to be a big weekend for the fans and for the company and who knows how it will all transpire and what will be left once the dust has settled.
