WWE will sometimes bring in NXT superstars to work dark matches before television. This can be done for several reasons. The Royal Rumble is also coming up on Saturday so you never know who might show up in St. Louis.

According to PW Insider, several NXT Superstars are booked to be at SmackDown this week. That includes a couple women and men on the roster.

Dakota Kai, Io Shirai, LA Knight and Roderick Strong are all slated to be at this Friday’s WWE Smackdown taping in Kansas City, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

It seems that LA Knight already has a feud brewing on the main roster. We’ll have to see if the former Eli Drake makes his main roster debut as part of this dark match spot.

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.
