Finn Balor isn't eager to move to the main roster

NXT really is taking the WWE Universe by storm as the interest for the brand simply grows and the quality of the show gets better and better.

We are just several days away from NXT's next live special as Takeover Unstoppable is set to air on the WWE Network on Wednesday night.

The show is being headlined by an NXT Championship rematch between Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens in what will now be a very personal match.

One of the fastest rising stars in NXT is Finn Balor who is set to compete in a triple threat match at Unstoppable to determine the #1 contender for the NXT Championship.

Balor will take on Hideo Itami and Tyler Breeze on Wednesday night in what should prove to be an explosive match.

Any superstars on NXT are instantly judged by the fans and with the programme being the WWE's developmental program, everyone asks one question.

When will they make it to the main roster?

It is the natural assumption that the NXT superstars are aiming for the main roster but in a recent interview, Balor has proven that isn't the case.

"I’m not in any rush to make a move to Raw or SmackDown. I’m very content at NXT and there’s a lot of challenges and a lot of milestones still to be achieved in NXT before I make any move." - Balor on moving to the main roster.

Claiming to be content on NXT is one thing, but it is worth noting that when Balor referred to the main roster, he used quotation marks.

Is it possible that Balor sees the main roster as inferior to the NXT? Well he wouldn't be the only one as many fans would agree with him.

NXT superstars have reached the main roster and why some like Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have risen to the very top, others like Bo Dallas and the Ascension have languished in mediocrity.

Joe coming through?

This Wednesday's show is set to have a few shocks in store for the fans but the biggest rumour surrounding the event is that many are expecting a big name to arrive.

For months, the former TNA superstar Samoa Joe has been rumoured to be coming to NXT and it now appears that he could be set to arrive this Wednesday.

Who knows what match, if any Samoa Joe will impact and who he could be set to target but his arrival on the show will surely be yet another step forward for the developmental program.
