• NXT To Be A Major Part Of Post-WrestleMania 36 Storyline

According to Tom Colohue, NXT is set to play a major part in the post-WrestleMania 36 storylines.

A “Super ShakeUp” is set to take place after WrestleMania 36 and NXT will be the third brand in that, along with RAW and SmackDown.

Below is what Colohue said regarding the possible trades from NXT:

“The Superstar Shake-up is planned to have NXT Stars involved. This is becoming more clear as to who it might be based on current storylines and current championships.

[NXT Women’s Champion] Rhea Ripley is now getting challenged by Charlotte Flair, a victory for Charlotte surely means a trade of some sort there, a victory of Shayna Baszler challenging Becky Lynch surely means some trade there.

But also when you look at Gargano/Ciampa going one last time, hopefully, one last time, when you look at Undisputed Era losing a lot of their championships recently, only the actual NXT Championship remains. It seems highly likely that Adam Cole will be defending the title against Finn Balor in the coming weeks leading up to WrestleMania at TakeOver: Tampa.

Undisputed Era and Shayna Baszler are the most likely candidates to get the call-up, of course now it’s a call sideways, but there are believed to be a number of changes planned.

When it comes to moves to NXT, it will maintain the NXT spirit that the fans have come to expect, that is a direct quote from a source.”
