• Top NXT Wrestler Getting Called Up To The WWE Main Roster Soon
Former NXT Tag Team Champion Matt Riddle could be moving to RAW or SmackDown anytime now. His Cage Fight against Timothy Thatcher this week on NXT could be his last one on the black and gold brand.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Riddle making the jump to the WWE main roster is imminent, and it could happen anytime now.
Riddle has heat with several wrestlers in NXT, so this could be a reason for him joining the main roster. In addition, his NXT Tag Team Championship run with Pete Dunne got ruined due to the Coronavirus pandemic. He cannot be inserted into the main event scene right now as it’s already too stacked.
It is expected that Riddle will debut on RAW next week in a match against a Performance Center talent.
