Rumours have surfaced online recently that the WWE are planning another Superstar Shakeup in the coming months, except this time, there will be a twist. Not only will stars be moving from Raw to Smackdown and vice versa, but wrestlers from NXT will also be able to move and main roster stars will also be given the opportunity to go the other way.
While some may say that being sent to NXT is a backwards step for anyone currently on the main roster, but if NXT has shown us anything over the last year- it’s that it can revitalise someone’s career and give them a chance to develop away from the spotlight.
Right now there are several main roster superstars who could benefit from a move to NXT, whether it be to refine their character and in-ring style, or whether it’s because they have achieved everything they can in the WWE and NXT could provide them with the chance to give newer stars a rub. Here’s a look at six superstars who could benefit from a move to NXT in the coming months.
6) Apollo Crews
Apollo Crews arrived on the WWE main roster last year and looked set for big things. Unfortunately, his character has failed to gain any momentum in the last 12 months and he has spent the last few months working as a sidekick for Titus O Neil.
While this may be the most interesting thing he has done, it is still not what people were expecting from him following his excellent performances in NXT. Sending Crews back would give the company the chance to change his character up and figure out a way to get him to reconnect with an audience that is becoming increasingly apathetic towards him.
