The WWE Universe saw four big additions to the main roster last night on RAW. Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black, and Ricochet all made main roster debuts and won their respective matches in impressive fashion.
We previously reported that virtually nobody backstage knew about these call-ups. In fact, it goes a little bit deeper as well because some Superstars were actually worried about their place in the company.
We have been told that certain Superstars who received main roster call-ups from NXT recently were blindsided by the news of these four top NXT Superstars’ call-ups as well. However, the worry isn’t limited to just the recently called-up crop of talent because some existing mid-card Superstars are also concerned. Some expressed worry that they will be passed up and have someone coming for their spot.
There wasn’t a sense of resentment about the situation, but there was a fair amount of trepidation for certain Superstars who are paying close attention to their position on the roster.
