It looks like more main roster stars could be set to appear in NXT.
Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that Nick Khan wants to include main roster talent on NXT in order to get a better deal with the USA Network:
“I mean the deal is, that this is a Nick Khan thing you know bring…like they had Dana Brooke, which is no big deal but still. Corbin, bring more main roster stars to NXT every week, boost the ratings and try to boost the price for a renewal from USA Network because the ratings are higher. So that’s the strategy that they’re going with. That’s why you’re going to be seeing more main roster stars and he said it a couple of weeks ago that the plan is to put more main roster stars on NXT and make it a third brand and not a developmental brand. Which is funny because [Paul “Triple H” Leveque wanted to be a third brand and they nixed him and made it a developmental brand. But that’s not a surprise. Things like they say in WWE, if there’s a new rule and it’s stupid, don’t worry because it’s all going to change. If there’s a new thing that’s good, don’t worry because it’s all going to change anyway and that’s just the nature of the beast there”.
