New NXT Call-Ups A Sign That WWE Still Doesn’t Get It

This week’s RAW introduced a few changes, including six NXT superstars getting called up to the main roster. 

  On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said WWE are bringing up NXT talents who aren’t top draws from the brand. 

“It’s like you wanna shake things up with people because they’re good looking? You know? We’re gonna bring them up because they can be stars. That’s the same problem we’ve had all along. [WWE is] narrow-casting, [they’re] doing TV for the masses so you know they have to be a certain way. Even though everyone [they’ve] handpicked for the most part haven’t worked and guys we thought could never get over in the masses whether it be CM Punk or Daniel Bryan or whatever did get over.”

“It’s like can you learn that lesson?”

Being a top draw in NXT isn’t necessary to be successful on the main roster, as Braun Strowman has proven. However, there are also instances of NXT call-ups failing as well. We will have to wait and see what WWE does.
