• Possible WWE Main Roster Call-Up From NXT After SummerSlam 2018
SummerSlam 2018 promises to be a huge event this year, particularly with the prospect of Brock Lesnar finally dropping the Universal Championship and the possibility of a monstrous cash-in.
Many other questions remain unanswered going into the summer extravaganza, including the precarious nature of Daniel Bryan’s future with the company, and whether we might see Ronda Rousey get her first taste of gold inside a WWE ring.
All of these will be answered at the event itself, but for now, let’s focus on who might be wrestling an NXT show for the last time at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV.
According to Slice Wrestling, WWE officials are planning to call up Velveteen Dream to the main roster after SummerSlam 2018. The possibility of him joining the main roster looks high as WWE had his name in the main roster debut list after WrestleMania this year as well.

If Dream is promoted soon, he’ll be the first of a new generation of NXT stars to make the main roster – and when the rest eventually follow, it’s going to be brilliant.
Velveteen Dream will face EC3 this Saturday night at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV.
