WWE Hall of Famer Edge recently spoke with WZ Radio about various topics. During the interview, he was asked about former NXT Champion Finn Balor, who is rumored to be called up to the main roster in a few months. According to Edge, Balor, Samoa Joe Sami Zayn could’ve been called up to the main roster right away and not sent to NXT.
Here is what Edge had to say:
“Pretty much everybody in NXT is ready to be on the main roster,” he said. “When is the right time? I don’t know. You see AJ go straight from New Japan to the main roster. Finn could have done the same thing. Joe could have done the same thing. Sami could have done the same thing. NXT is great, but you need those guys there in a developmental system like that to be able to lead and show the way forward for some of the younger guys that don’t have that New Japan experience. That don’t have some of that international cred under their belts already. It’s really important to have Finn, Samoa Joe and Sami there to say, “Well, this is where we need to get to make it to the top tier.” To then springboard past that to the main roster. But, yes, he’s totally ready and some of the match ups you can think of already have fans like, “Ooooooooh aaaaaahhhhhhhh.”
