News On Two More Top NXT Stars Being Called Up


As we reported earlier today here on eWn, there have been internal discussions within WWE to bring NXT 2.0’s Imperium up to the main roster.

In an additional report, Fightful Select have revealed that both LA Knight and Raquel Gonzalez have also been pitched as potential call-ups.

The report notes that in the case of Gonzalez, her call up is reportedly expected by most within NXT. This comes after there have previously been several pitches made for her to head to the main roster before now. Additionally, Gonzalez has worked multiple dark matches on main roster shows already.

In the case of LA Knight, the report notes that his situation does not seem as certain as of the time of this writing. There have reportedly been pitches for Knight to come up, with Knight’s stellar mic work being praised in particular. However, as a result of this particular part of Knight’s skillset drawing a great deal of praise, his role may well change if he heads to the main roster. One pitch that has been made was for LA Knight to head to the main roster as a manager.

Much like fellow potential NXT call up Gonzalez, Knight has also wrestled a main roster dark match. Knight would defeat Roderick Strong ahead of the January 21st episode of Friday Night SmackDown.

Would you like to see either Knight or Gonzalez move up from NXT? And would you want to see Knight used primarily as a manager? Let us know in the comments below!
