Despite the worldwide success of NXT and the stars, they manage to produce, not every single graduate is able to live up to the same expectations on the main roster.
Some superstars and Diva’s will exceed expectations such as Seth Rollins, whilst others will fall well below expectations, such as Bo Dallas.
Not every NXT superstar is going to win a championship title on the main roster, but there are superstars and Diva’s on NXT who do have the potential to go all the way and actually carve an extremely successful main roster career.

It’s not guaranteed, though, some stars may be very talented – such as Neville – but bad booking and a lack of direction can really take its toll on the development of a superstar.
Looking at the NXT roster right now I think it’s clear to many fans that certain stars stand out who can be successful. Here are the superstars and Diva’s I believe could capture championships on the main roster.
WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
NXT fans will be quick to say that a number of NXT superstars should go on to hold the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Now whilst the talent is clearly there for all to see I don’t think the most popular superstars will go on to become WWE World Heavyweight Champions as things stand, of course, that can change in the future.
Apollo Crews is probably one of the favourites to go on to capture the ultimate prize as things look to be going great for him right now. He has a fantastic look, he’s one of the best in the ring and he excites fans which is key.
He’s going to challenge Finn Balor for the NXT Championship which he’s definitely capable of winning. A good stint on NXT would set him up for huge success on the main roster and it’s clear the likes of Triple H are fully invested in him.
WWE DIVA’S CHAMPIONSHIP
NXT Diva’s have had a lot of success on the main roster when it comes to championship titles. Paige has held the title on two occasions and now Charlotte is the current holder.
The WWE are in a fortunate position right now that they have some of the finest female athletes in their possession who are able to hold the championship, such as Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks. On NXT, you can’t look further than Bayley.
She’s played a huge role in making the Diva’s division so successful on NXT and it’s clear she could a play a Daniel Bryan role on the main roster. Aside from her, Alexa Bliss also looks like somebody who has what it takes to succeed.
She’s clearly talented, she has a great look and she’s still so young and has time to improve.
WWE INTERCONTINENTAL/UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP
This is where it opens up a little more as there are plenty of superstars on NXT who have the ability to not only hold the titles but make the divisions a lot more exciting.
Finn Balor is definitely someone who will add value here if he can’t get to the top level, he’s 34 now and we still don’t know when he’ll make that jump to the main roster. Tyler Breeze is another who can actually go to the top if booked correctly but these are titles he would excel in holding.
Then you have Sami Zayn and Hideo Itami who are very popular with the NXT fans and I can see them being similar to Kevin Owens, although Owens is probably more likely to become World Champion.
WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
There are already a number of tag teams on the main roster who are entertaining – spearheaded by The New Day – but there are even more on NXT who could add so much more.
Enzo Amore and Big Cass are the obvious names and a feud with The New Day would be the most entertaining segments you’d see on a weekly basis. They connect with the fans, they’re fresh and always exceed expectations.
Jason Jordan and Chad Gable are the new, exciting tag team on NXT and they look like the traditional tag team you want to see succeed and do well. If they’re able to show continue on NXT and potentially become champions then we should expect to see them being dominant on the main roster also.
