Lars Sullivan will be making his debut on the main roster soon enough, and big things are in store for him. Despite some controversy surrounding him lately, WWE will go ahead as planned.
On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez spoke about Sullivan and would explain what WWE thinks about Lars. He said NXT is a money loser but there’s a way to make up for that.
He mentioned Lars being brought up to the main roster and would get a monster push. The video packages of him on both Raw and Smackdown, with announcers salivating over him. All these indicate how much they are betting on him.
In WWE’s mind, if Lars gets called up and runs roughshod over the next year and in 2020 if he headlines Wrestlemania, then that would more than make up the losses for developing him on NXT.
WWE doesn’t really have a great track record with NXT champions, seeing as some of them are struggling on the main roster. But perhaps Lars’ case will be different, as he has a lot of things to look forward to in the future. Only in good time will we know just how well he does on the main roster.
