WWE News: Sheamus tips Jordan Devlin for a main roster WWE call-up in future


WWE have recently signed a broadcast deal with BT Sport which will bring UK fans closer to the action than ever before. 

Not only will they show every RAW, SmackDown and pay-per-view, but BT also have rights to NXT and NXT UK, too. 

Therefore, casual fans have every opportunity to check out WWE's developmental brands - and that can only be good news for everyone. 

The new deal also proves just how much wrestling is still growing outside of the United States and that's something Kurt Angle and Sheamus have been talking about recently. 

"It’s great. It shows how big WWE is and it’s growing. From the time I first watched it in Dublin to now, it’s crazy," the Celtic warrior exclusively told GIVEMESPORT. 

"It just goes to show that this company is growing so fast. I still look forward to the days where I’m spending less time in the states and more time on the road.

"The more time we get in the UK and Ireland the better and there’s now more opportunity for us to do it. So I’m all for it."

Angle also added that he thinks partnering with BT Sport will also deliver WWE bigger ratings.

"BT Sport is top level. To be affiliated with them is huge, it will only help our product. We’ll get higher ratings because of it," the American Hero said. 

While talking to us about the move to BT, Sheamus also suggested that more people will be able to see NXT UK's impressive talent - and he reserved special praise for Jordan Devlin. 

"Jordan’s great, a lovely fella," the main roster star said. 

"He’s busting his ass and making a name for himself in the UK. But people all over the world and in the states are going to see his match [vs Tyler Bate at TakeOver]. 

Devlin is currently performing on NXT UK

"He’s trained by Finn Balor [Fergal Devitt]. He’s got a great background, great fundamentals. As long as he takes care of his body he’ll have a long career.

"He’s still very young. Stay the course, stay injury-free and there’s no reason he can’t be in the states full-time."
