The WWE Draft took place on this past Friday, resulting in a number of top stars moving to new shows. In addition to big names like Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Bianca Belair changing shows, several NXT stars were also granted call-ups to the main roster.

While fans were anticipating names like Bron Breakker, Cameron Grimes, and Zoey Stark to be on the move, it was actually NXT Women’s Champion Indi Hartwell and NXT Women’s Tag Champions Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn who were drafted to Raw and Smackdown, respectively.

NXT boss Shawn Michaels was on hand to deliver the news, and although he seemed perplexed to see all three of his female champions moved elsewhere, he later took to Twitter to offer his support to the three stars.

“What an amazing night for the #WWEDraft and the #WWENXT roster! I’m so excited for our #WWENXT superstars as they move forward and forge their own path on #WWERAW & #SmackDown


Congratulations to our champs @indi_hartwell ,@wwe_alba, and @IslaDawn!”

Following SmackDown, there has been much speculation about potential main roster call-ups that could be announced when the draft continues on Monday. Along with the previously mentioned names, other reported stars potentially on the verge of a move include Pretty Deadly, Tyler Bate, and Cora Jade.
