Lars Sullivan Isn’t Happy With NXT Superstars Joining The WWE Main Roster At The Same Time As Him

Multiple NXT Superstars are making their WWE debuts soon on either Raw or SmackDown LIVE and Lars Sullivan isn’t happy about it.

When Vince McMahon appears, he tends to leave Raw looking much different than he found it. And on a night when he promised to “shake things up” on the red brand, The Chairman made his most sweeping change to the WWE landscape in years, announcing that the McMahon family — himself, Stephanie, Shane and Triple H — would collectively oversee both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown LIVE.

The move, as Stephanie explained, was a corrective to recent weeks where they had failed to listen to their audience and instead allowed petty grievances to take over. Shane’s SmackDown LIVE was included as part of the family’s plan to “empower” the Superstars and the audience. Triple H followed up with a promise to the audience that “as of now, you are The Authority,” with an additional vow to introduce new matchups and new Superstars.

Those new faces were later confirmed to be NXT Superstars Lacey Evans, Heavy Machinery (Otis Dozovic and Tucker Knight), Nikki Cross, EC3 and the previously-announced Lars Sullivan, though it was not clear which brand they would be competing on.

WWE later aired this video package highlighting all six competitors.

Reacting to the news on Twitter, Sullivan said to spare any “congratulations” for his “wonderful NXT colleagues.”

“Please spare me any “congratulations”. Please, give it all to my wonderful NXT colleagues. They are each so talented, and most importantly wonderful human beings. May you all have a blessed day. And a blessed holiday season too!” Sullivan wrote.

Sullivan then admitted to his tweet being insincere.

“In regards to this tweet, I’m admittedly being insincere. Everyone in NXT can kiss my ass, especially the 5 who stole my thunder. And all of you can kiss my ass. I hope your holidays are as miserable as mine. See you soon, WWE,” Sullivan wrote.

As is often the case with Sullivan, he deleted both tweets.
