Several NXT Stars Being Considered For Main Roster During WWE Draft
There are several NXT stars that are being considered for WWE main roster spots when the upcoming WWE Draft takes place starting on April 28th.
The WWE Draft is set to begin next week on the April 28th edition of Smackdown in Corpus Christi, Texas, and continues the next Monday on the May 1st edition of Raw in Fort Worth, Texas.
When WWE’s Chief Operating Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque announced that the 2023 WWE Draft was coming on the first Smackdown after WrestleMania, Triple H said that every single superstar was eligible for it while adding that it will “truly change the game.”
Since Triple H said that “every single superstar was eligible” for the WWE Draft, it led to fans speculating that some NXT stars would find permanent homes on either Raw or Smackdown after the WWE Draft.
In an update on what NXT stars are being considered for the WWE Draft, PWInsider Elite’s Mike Johnson mentioned some superstars being discussed while noting it’s always subject to change. The names mentioned are:
* Cameron Grimes – He has been off TV for several months and the main roster call-up has been expected for a long time.
* Pretty Deadly (Kit Wilson & Elton Prince) – They are former NXT Tag Team Champions that have wrestled on WWE main roster live events as well. YES BOY!
* Ilja Dragunov – A former NXT UK Champion that has had some legendary matches with current Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER.
* Zoey Stark – She lost clean to Roxanne Perez on this week’s April 18th edition of NXT, so that could be one of her last NXT matches.
Another name mentioned previously for the main WWE roster by WRKD Wrestling on Twitter is Tyler Bate. There will likely be other rumors over the next week. Of course, none of them are official until WWE announces them when the WWE Draft begins next Friday on Smackdown.
