WWE news: Jeff Jarrett says NXT UK talent will be on main roster PPVs 'without question'

NXT UK boasts some of the top young wrestling talent in the world.

Just look at the likes of Tyler Bate, Jordan Devlin, Toni Storm and Ilja Dragunov, for example. 

The British brand is seen as a stepping stone for superstars outside of the United States to work towards WWE’s main developmental territory – NXT. 

We’ve already seen Pete Dunne and Rhea Ripley added to the roster Stateside and we can expect many more to follow them in the coming years. 

As it stands, barring the annual Worlds Collide event, NXT UK is kept very separate from all of the other brands. 

But according to Jeff Jarrett, that could change in the future. 

The Hall of Famer turned backstage producer believes that NXT UK stars will one day appear on the main roster pay-per-views ‘without question’.  

“When you have a different brand – NXT UK – especially in 2020 when we can click and see them, RAW and SmackDown instantly [it makes sense],” Jarrett exclusively told GIVEMESPORT. 

“Look at Survivor Series in 2019. I thought it was one of the best in years. When you drill it down, it’s not hard to see why it was so good – NXT.

“It’s fresh. Just look at Rhea Ripley and Keith lee – I could go on and on. It’s just a matter of time [until NXT UK can feature too].

My man WALTER – the sky is the limit for him. I can see NXT UK on the main roster pay per views – without question.

The UK brand is only going to grow in the next few years, so it makes sense to start integrating their talent with the main roster. 

As a standalone product, NXT UK is fantastic. But just imagine the potential dream matches we could see if every single brand comes together. 

We saw NXT (and WALTER) at Survivor Series last year, so perhaps there’s a chance we’ll see more NXT UK superstars later this year? Only time will tell, but it sounds promising.
