Meltzer noted that Kurt Angle and Daniel Bryan being in attendance looks to be part of a storyline that will lead to more NXT stars being called up to the main roster in the near future. Meltzer also mentioned that the company is “super high” on Roode right now and he might be pushed as one of the top five guys on whichever brand he joins. With Adam Cole expected to feud with Drew McIntyre, the only thing left for Roode to do in NXT at this point would be to finish his program with Roderick Strong.
