• Plan For WWE’s Newest Main Roster Star Revealed
As seen during promos that aired this week at Survivor Series 2018, RAW & SmackDown, NXT Superstar Lars Sullivan will be making his WWE main roster debut soon.
According to Brad Shepard, WWE officials are planning to have Lars debut on SmackDown Live because RAW already has a monster in Braun Strowman (who is basically a bigger Lars Sullivan).
Lars is expected to squash smaller opponents to get successful on SmackDown Live before moving on to bigger feuds, similar to what WWE did with Strowman back in 2016 when he went solo after the brand split.
We’ll keep you updated regarding Sullivan’s WWE debut date.
