Roderick Strong recently lost a title unification match with Carmelo Hayes that brought an end to the NXT Cruiserweight Championship. Roddy is one of a declining number of wrestling veterans left in NXT. The WWE Universe has speculated about Strong’s future with the company ever since.

Roddy has been with WWE since 2016. Strong was a member of the Undisputed Era with Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly. All three of them have since signed with AEW. Strong re-signed with WWE in 2021.

Strong is scheduled to face WALTER on tonight’s episode of NXT. He recently opened his own store on Pro Wrestling Tees. Bryan Alvarez broached the subject on today’s Wrestling Observer Live. Alvarez thinks the writing is on the wall.

“WALTER will be facing Roderick Strong on Tuesday night. God, I hope they give this match time. I don’t know what the future is for Roderick strong, because, you know, Roderick Strong was the Cruiserweight Champion. They’re getting rid of the cruiserweight belt. Clearly, they don’t want cruiserweights. And I believe Roderick Strong just opened up a PW Tees store, so I don’t know what the future is for this guy…

I don’t know if we’ll know more tonight, but I expected him to be destroyed by WALTER… Who knows what his future is from there, but my guess is Roderick Strong will also not be in the Royal Rumble.”

Roderick Strong is the last of a dying breed in NXT. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for him. With this latest tidbit along with his PW Tees store, fans will be speculating left and right about Roddy’s next move.
