At this point going to NXT might not seem like that much of a demotion for some Superstars. After all, TakeOver specials are usually pretty great if not better than the actual main roster show that follows.
Triple H took part in a media call when he addressed the idea of Superstars moving over to NXT and how that might not be viewed as a bad thing.
“I think now when you look back at the roster over the last few years and you look at the main roster. I think the number is something like 80% or so of the main roster came out of NXT. So there are a lot of talent there that wouldn’t even be a stretch to come into NXT if they were on the main roster and came back to NXT.”
“It wouldn’t be a big stretch — and I think when you’ve seen, you know the last few weeks every now and then in an effort to give people surprises and constantly keep things fresh we’ve had live events where we brought The Revival on and we’ve had live events where we brought Tyler Breeze on.”
“Those kinds of surprises and shocks — people love it — it’s like going home in a way. So I do think you could see that happen very easily and I don’t think it would be a stretch for people to consider that being a possibility.”
Only time will tell if WWE eventually starts sending people over to NXT instead of trading them between Raw and SmackDown. But a refresher in NXT might be just what some wrestlers need in order to have a fresh start.
