15 NXT Stars Who Will Thrive If Promoted For The Brand Split

This upcoming summer, beginning with a fantastic Money in the Bank PPV this past weekend, could prove to be the most important in the future of this great company, with many fantastic and innovative events to look forward too, such as Battleground & SummerSlam, the always brilliant next instalment of NXT Takeover, the first ever Cruiserweight Classic, Brock Lesnar’s UFC return while still under WWE contract, and of course, most important of all, the impending brand split. On this topic, Dave Meltzer has recently been reporting that WWE has reached out to several former stars to help boost this split, including Goldberg, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Carlito and MVP, and while these would all be welcome additions to the roster, especially to help bring much needed star power to both brands, there is another well of talent that Vince and the rest of management can dip into to help make this as successful as possible, the ‘developmental’ brand of WWE, NXT.

While there may be criticism of Vince’s misuse of several NXT stars to date, such as Bo Dallas, Neville and the Ascension, there is no doubt the talent level of several performers on the yellow brand, and with the rosters being stretched as thing as possible, McMahon and managements hand may be forced to utilize these stars in a greater role. With all that being said, the following 15 NXT stars are no doubt worthy of promotion to assist in the brand split, but they would thrive in making WWE once again the best wrestling product in the world.

For months on end, since the arrival of AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, fans and industry experts alike have been speculating on the main roster debut of Finn Balor, which has got to the point where every event WWE puts on, fans wait anxiously for the surprise arrival of ‘the Demon.’ Due to his charisma, amazing wrestling & story telling ability, and his likeability both on screen and off, when Finn eventually does reach the main roster, whether its to join The Club or fly solo, there is no doubt he will be a main event star for many, many years to come, and with the help of his incredible popularity as the face of NXT, he should be able to slot right in to the top of the card immediately. The top of each brand will no doubt be given to Seth Rollins, John Cena, Roman Reigns & AJ Styles, but due to his incredible run in NXT and his backstage popularity, Balor should work his way to the top of either card before next year's WrestleMania, and who knows, maybe the rumored (at least from many fan’s perspectives) match with the Deadman or a Championship match could solidify him as the future of wrestling.
