– Was Top NXT Star Scheduled To Get Called-Up To The WWE Main Roster?
During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Live, Dave Meltzer commented on Drew McIntyre losing the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: War Games, getting injured & possibly being called-up to the WWE main roster. Below is what he said:
“It’s funny because I don’t know that he was being called up. As soon as I saw him get pinned, the first thing in my mind was he’s getting called up because I didn’t expect him to lose. I expected him to do a program with Adam Cole.
And because Adam Cole was definitely earmarked for that, I mean really Adam Cole was gonna be the challenger before they came up with War Games idea. Adam Cole was actually gonna be the challenger on this show.
I don’t think that they’ll go with Adam Cole. I guess they could. I mean if Drew McIntyre is hurt and he was gonna get called up, that really sucks for him because he was on a roll. And I thought that, you know, just watching like the TV on Wednesday and then watching the match and in just the reports and seeing them live a couple months ago, I mean he could be one of the better guys on the main roster. He can talk. He’s got the size that they like. Good body. Very good worker. Really good look.
So I mean either way he’s gonna be on the main roster soon enough. But hopefully no surgery because bicep surgery could be a bad deal. Bicep surgery is usually a six-month deal.”
