WWE called up four of NXT’s top Superstars not too long ago and suddenly Ricochet, Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano, and Tommaso Ciampa were up on the main roster. This was done without Triple H being made aware of it, but as he explained during a media conference today that is just the way things are.
Triple H explained that Vince McMahon has the final say-so when it comes to calling up an NXT Superstar to the main roster. There is no discussion of whether NXT needs a Superstar for a certain angle because when WWE needs someone there are no questions asked.
They knew about Tommaso Ciampa’s injury and that he needed some time off, but his main roster call-up happened anyway. Further injuring him could have been avoided, but it obviously wasn’t. They had at least hoped to get him some exposure on the main roster before he had to take time off, but his surgery was unavoidable.
Only time will tell who Vince McMahon will say that WWE needs next on the main roster, but it doesn’t look like he is going to check with NXT to make sure it’s okay before making the decision.
