WWE is going through some changes in NXT and the brand will soon have much different look. They are also elevating a few new wrestlers to the top of the heel side of things.

According to a report from PW Insider, with Karrion Kross and Adam Cole gone, NXT is bringing Johnny Gargano, Pete Dunne, and Roderick Strong up as the top bad guys for the black and gold brand.

With Adam Cole and Karrion Kross gone, we are told the current plan is for Johnny Gargano to be positioned as the top heel for the brand. We are told Pete Dunne and Roderick Strong will also be main players on the heel side of things.

We will have to see how things pan out in the months to come. The NXT brand is due for some significant changes, but Johnny Gargano, Pete Dunne, and Roderick Strong are apparently in the company’s plan. This is also very interesting considering the recent report that Dunne’s NXT deal was running up.

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.
