In a huge bit of news, there is a lot of talk regarding WWE NXT being involved in WrestleMania 31. It is already confirmed that WWE will have NXT matches taking place at WrestleMania Axxess. Triple H didn't exactly want that to occur, but Vince McMahon was insistent. However, fans who want to see NXT represented at the show of shows might get to see it.
WWE has been noticing how huge WWE NXT has gotten and consider it like another brand for them. They realize that it is a huge draw for people to subscribe to the WWE Network. With another "Takeover" live special coming up next week for it during free WWE Network month, WWE knows that NXT will continue to grow fans. So there has been talk in trying to get many of them involved in some sort of multi-man match.
According to Daily Wrestling News, multiple ideas have been pitched regarding NXT Superstars being involved in WrestleMania. One that stood out the most currently is a multi-man ladder match similar to Money in the Bank. While not confirmed, there is a big chance it could be for Sami Zayn's NXT Championship. That would mean he, along with other huge NXT stars like Kevin Owens, Finn Balor, Hideo Itami, and Adrian Neville, could all take part in WrestleMania.
Due to the amount of matches currently rumored, this match would most likely take place during the pre-show if it takes place at all. WWE could simply have a one-on-one match take place instead. WWE does want to get the crowd hot before the major part of WrestleMania takes place. So what better way to do that than to have NXT open to get the crowd going?
WWE is considering just that, but we'll have to wait and see what type of match they plan to do. It is almost confirmed that we'll see NXT involved in some way, it's just how and when that is up in the air. WWE could always change their minds and not add NXT to the show so that they can make room for main roster talent to have matches. Due to the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal taking place, a lot of Superstars will have a chance to shine in a mult-man match. We could see NXT involved there if WWE cannot figure out a way to add them into their own match.
Many fans would probably really enjoy seeing a ladder match with the top NXT talent. WWE would be smart to add this type of match as it would only bring more exposure to NXT and of course kick the show off with a bang on the WWE Network. Let us wait and see if WWE pulls such a trigger.
