Top WWE NXT Stars Booked For Next Week’s Main Roster TV Tapings, More Cross-Promotion?

Several top WWE NXT talents are booked for the next few weeks of WWE TV tapings for the main roster. NXT Champion Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze are all booked for next week’s RAW in Lafayette and next week’s SmackDown tapings in Biloxi.

Triple H noted earlier this week in a conference call that they are open to doing a lot more cross-promotion between NXT and the main roster. With NXT stars booked for upcoming main roster tapings, this could be the start of more cross-promotion.

    Personally, I think NXT is something that should be kept for the network. Sure putting them on tv is a good idea to get them some exposure and make some people buy the network. But why every week? Not saying they are going to go that route and put nxt talent on tv every week. But if they do, then people will say oh Ill just watch raw, I don’t need the network to see them. So basically what I’m saying is I hope they don’t over expose them

      That’s one advantage of NXT being available on network TV in the UK. With the exception of the live shows (which are shown a few days later) we have it on our screens a few hours before it is shown on the WWE Network. It’s the same with Smackdown on fridays.

    NXT could become the cruiserweight division of the new WWE

    Eugh, as soon as the main WWe creative get their hands on NXT they’ll ruin it. The reason why NXT is so brilliant is because it operates without the handicap of WWE’s creative team. It allows characters to develop and doesn’t suffer from stop start pushes like the main roster. Characters like Big E Langston and Rusev have regressed since moving up to the main roster.

      I think it is because they only have one person doing all the scripting/planning/etc. It is amazing what a difference that makes. Consistency is key.

        Exactly, the turnover on the main tv shows is so high they can’t afford to let 1 person do everything. As with most committees, too many c ooks spoil the broth, which is why we regularly get 3 hours of Raw which is unwatchable, because it’s a dozen different creative minds each trying to get their ideas recognised so they can get a job in Hollywood and leave WWE.

        The whole system is so broken they need to wipe the slate clean and start again.

    Just my luck I cannot take a day off work to travel to Biloxi to see this….. #Dammit

    Nxt stars used once in a while on raw and SmackDown is great exposure for thr wrestlers and great for the network. They get to showcase their work on national TV and the network can possibly gain new subscribers just to watch these guys on nxt. I personally love the idea. Gives Raw the breath of fresh air it needs

    I want to see Divas from NXT on the main roster . But, I think is a good idea of making some cross-promotion but not every single week.

    It’s about time! Can’t wait to see what these guys bring to the main roster.
