Each year, we see new WWE Superstars and Divas added to the main roster. Some spend very little time in developmental, like Daniel Bryan. Then you have others who have been in developmental and never once were offered a chance to move up as of yet, such as Tyler Breeze. Breeze has spent four years there in fact. Due to the major success of WWE NXT, it is not shocking that WWE is considering the idea of moving some talent up soon.
According to Cageside Seats, WWE plans to bring up quite a number of NXT talent right after WrestleMania 31. A few in mind are of course Sami Zayn, Charlotte, and Adrian Neville. In a bit of a twist, WWE is also considering the idea of bringing up Finn Balor. Balor has only been in developmental since around the summer time. He didn’t appear on an NXT broadcast until the Fall period.
In his time with NXT, he has been impressive to say the very least. The main reason for Finn Balor being called up is mainly due to his age. WWE knows they have a blue chip talent in Balor who could connect to fans in a very unique way. The issue is, he’s 33 years old. Despite how good he may appear and how young he may come across, WWE knows that the time has to be now with Balor. They cannot wait with him.
He has shown that he is more than ready to be on the main roster. On top of this, he has wrestled for large audiences in places like New Japan Pro-Wrestling. So he knows how to connect with big crowds as much as small ones. Age is the reason someone like Alberto Del Rio also spent very little time in developmental. Hideo Itami may also end up seeing the main roster soon for the exact same reason. Many believe Hideo is only in NXT because WWE has nothing for him on the main roster at the moment.
WWE has also considered bringing up Tyler Breeze who many find to be more than ready. Despite being in developmental for a very long time, he is still only 27 years old. So he has plenty of time to make an appearance.
A wildcard we might see is Baron Corbin. He is 30 years old and WWE may take a chance on him and bring him up with Zahra Schreiber as his manager. There is a plan to put the two together in NXT. If she can talk well enough, she could do the talking and the two could have a Rusev/Lana vibe. Although, Baron can speak English just fine he is not a great mic worker. His presence is big though and he is getting great reviews in NXT. So it might happen.
Despite all the thought, WWE may only bring up a couple people. We can almost guarantee Charlotte, Adrian Neville, Finn Balor, and Sami Zayn will be seen. However, any others might be up in the air unless they are coming up as a tag team.
