• Identity Of NXT Wrestler Rumored To Debut On SmackDown
As we noted before, a report from WrestleVotes stated that a wrestler from NXT was supposed to debut in the main event of SmackDown last week, and he was slated be a part of the ongoing storyline between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens.
Fightful Select is now reporting that the wrestler who’s getting the call up to SmackDown is former NXT North American Champion Damian Priest.
“The Archer Of Infamy” lost to Karrion Kross on this week’s NXT New Year’s Evil episode, and it’s likely that he’ll now get the call up to the blue brand.

No word on what role he’s going to play in the storyline between Reigns and Owens, but him teaming up with Owens against Reigns and Uso seems like a good possibility.
