WWE just axed a number of main roster Superstars, but more NXT call-ups could be on the way. Vince McMahon has something he is looking for when it comes to calling up a Superstar to Raw or SmackDown.

The company sent higher-ups such as Bruce Prichard, Canyon Ceman and others to the WWE Performance Center to scout talent. That gave lot of fans a huge clue that more call-ups are on the way. WWE is reportedly bringing “several” people up soon enough.

Ringside News asked around about the impending NXT call-ups and who Vince McMahon is looking for. We were told straight-up that McMahon is “not looking for wrestlers.” He is looking for a different type of quality in a Superstar.

We were told that Vince McMahon is “looking for personalities.” He will ask who they have, and “if the character is very real, or if the character is outlandish, doesn’t matter.” Vince McMahon always asks: “What’s the character?”


We’ll have to see who Vince McMahon decides to call up from NXT next. He won’t make that decision based on just wrestling ability. He is looking for personalities and characters to freshen up the main roster. That could explain the call-ups he has pulled the trigger on so far like Rick Boogs. We will have to wait and see who else gets called up to the main roster next.

What’s your take on Vince McMahon’s criteria for WWE main roster Superstars? Sound off in the comments!

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
