NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III is officially in the books, and it provided a lot of talking points for fans to discuss before SummerSlam later tonight, and WWE's programming of shows next week including the NXT tapings at Full Sail University.

WWE fans at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night and those watching the event at home got to witness some incredible moments and matches including SAnitY winning the NXT Tag Team titles, Drew McIntyre defeating Bobby Roode to win the NXT Championship, and the debuts of Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, and Bobby Fish at the end of the show.

However, fans would have noticed as well the surprise attendants at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III last night, including former NXT superstars who are now on the main roster, as well as Monday Night RAW's general manager Kurt Angle, and SmackDown Live's general manager Daniel Bryan.

With no direct relation to NXT, many fans wondered why the two main roster general managers were at the show in Brooklyn last night. They were both shown sitting in a booth talking to several current NXT superstars.

Smarter fans would have put two and two together to work out that WWE is teasing a possible call up of NXT superstars to the main roster over the next couple of weeks, and according to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, that is the direction which the company is going in.

Satin tweeted out that he has heard from sources that the reason why they were shown at the event is that there will be some big main roster debuts just around the corner, with the main one likely to be the superstar who lost the NXT Championship in the main event last night, Bobby Roode.

During the segment, Angle can be seen talking to Roderick Strong with No Way Jose in the background, while Bryan can be seen talking to Billie Kay & Peyton Royce, suggesting Strong and Jose could be on their way to RAW, while Kay and Royce could be going to SmackDown.

A Superstar Shake-Up is rumored to be in the works in the weeks following SummerSlam tonight, so expect several superstars to switch brands and NXT call-ups to happen with Roode likely to be the biggest star to get a call up to either Monday Night RAW or SmackDown Live.
