Up And Down For NXT: 8 WWE Superstars That Need To Be Sent Down And 8 That Need To Be Called Up

The world of the WWE is ready to change with the brand split coming up. Raw and SmackDown will both need full rosters to create a unique brand for each show. Every Superstar in NXT is likely giddy with excitement following the news about the brand split. The current main roster will need more talent to make up the depth to have both shows develop as credible entities going forward. NXT’s success has been documented over the past year with extraordinary growth. The smaller brand has been bringing in fans at every venue and creating new stars that people want to see.

NXT’s original intent was to get promising talent ready for the main roster and the call-up should be most important. They will need talent to continue to thrive as a touring brand, so there has to be a middle ground. The main roster should also see some talents floundering or failing to make an impact get sent down to NXT to revamp their reputations. Tyson Kidd and Emma were two of the success stories of how this game plan could benefit the performer. Both talented performers were failing to get television time and a trip to NXT helped give them confidence again.

There are enough performers to have rotating rosters for Raw, SmackDown and NXT. The two national television brands will have to dip into the NXT talent pool to form rosters deep enough for the brand split. That’s a very safe bet at this point but some of the stars on the main roster should also be sent down to NXT for the betterment on the product. WWE benefits most at the end of the day if everyone is utilized effectively in the overall landscape. We’ll look at eight specific wrestlers that should be called up to the main roster and another eight should be sent down to NXT in a way where it helps everyone involved especially the Superstar involved.

1 Call Up: Shinsuke Nakamura

via youtube.com

There are very few talents in pro wrestling that can captivate a crowd by just walking to the ring and Shinsuke Nakamura is one of them. Everything about the Japanese import screams star power from the pageantry of his entrance to his matches in the ring. Nakamura’s limitations with English don’t matter as much as it did with other foreign wrestlers due to how inherently charismatic he is. WWE can’t waste too much time with a potential game-changing talent and he has to be on the main roster with the brand split coming. Nakamura has the possibility to be in the main event right away thanks to his ability to connect with any crowd he wrestles in front of.
