In recent days, there has been a lot of talk about athletes who could soon switch from the NXT roster to that of Monday Night Raw or Friday Night Smackdown, with numerous athletes from the WWE color show who are in fact about to make their big leap.
of quality in his career, like Tommaso Ciampa, now at the end of his journey to NXT. Already during the two-year period 2020-2021, several athletes have moved into the WWE main brand to give a jolt to their career in the McMahon-owned rings, such as the NXT archer, Damian Priest, currently alongside the WWE Hall of Famer, Edge, or the current Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair, fresh from triumph in Wrestlemania 38, against the former champion Becky Lynch, who had beaten her on her return to Summerslam.
In the last few hours, several names have already been moved from the NXT roster to that of the main brand, such as Raquel Gonzalez, an athlete who for a very short period had returned to being the pair champion of the WWE third roster, Gunther and Marcel Barthel, with the names of such athletes who have also been changed with this passage.
Many veterans are currently helping round out the NXT roster. Some are there because they choose to be; and others because they were simply demoted. But perhaps the most perplexing name of all is LA Knight, who despite two stints with WWE has never received a real shot at the main roster.
According to what was reported in the last few hours, from the well-known Fightful Select podcast, it seems that WWE has still different ideas for its NXT athlete, former TNA champion, LA Knight.
What's next for LA Knight?
Apparently, the idea of the WWE management would be to move Knight to the main roster, to have him act as manager, as the boy turns out to be one of the best speakers in the whole federation.
Apparently, therefore, the current idea of WWE is to move LA Knight to Monday Night Raw or Friday Night Smacdown, and then have him join some other Superstar who doesn't know how to do much with the microphone, with the boy who could instead go to fill these gaps, with its great capabilities.
Prior to his departure, WWE had a similar idea for Adam Cole as well, although the former NXT Champion ultimately chose to go and work at AEW, never renewing his contract with the McMahons.
