NXT call-ups have been a tradition over the last few years and there is speculation surrounding the names which might get called up after one of WWE’s big four pay-per-views, Survivor Series.
Joe Peisich mentioned on the Barnburner’s No Holds Barred podcast that the WWE is considering calling up some big names over to the main roster. He said:
“Two of the guys from what I hear, two of the guys from what I hear of all the matches we’re going to talk about [during NXT TakeOver: WarGames] are gonna be called up to the main roster the following Monday or Tuesday for SmackDown. Could be Aleister Black, could be Johnny Gargano or it could be one Tommaso Ciampa (I don’t think if he’s going to retain the title) or the Velveteen Dream.”
Tomasso Ciampa managed to retain his title at NXT TakeOver: WarGames. All of the other names have established their names in the NXT circuit over the course of the last year and it would be interesting to see how the switch up to the main roster works out if the WWE decides to pull the switch.
