This is a question I’ve been pondering for the past few weeks. When will Finn Balor finally make it to the WWE main roster? Neville has definitely begun his official push in the main event side of things after his great showing in NXT.
It’s anyone’s guess who may be next to follow him. If I were to bet money on it, I’d assume that Hideo Itami is next after his appearance at Wrestlemania. I thought they would be giving Finn Balor a run at the NXT title. However, they seem to have dropped him from the title scene again, which is a shame. However, at the same time, I think they’re trying to push Kevin Owens as a sort of NXT version of Brock Lesnar. He’s just dominating everyone. However, if anyone’s going to beat him, I feel it should either be Finn Balor or Sami Zayn.
Let me know who you’d like to beat Kevin Owens for the NXT title!
However, I’m going to assume that they will make sure that Neville is fully settled in the main roster before they bring someone else up.
Another possibility is bringing Hideo Itami and Finn Balor up together as a team. Seeing as they’ve had history in the past of working together. I’m not sure how creative would connect them together, however, this is the WWE…where linking Big Show with Rey Mysterio isn’t “weird”.
Who do you think will be the next person to be brought from NXT into the main event spotlight? I haven’t even mentioned the Divas of NXT. Perhaps one or two will be implemented into Smackdown soon to replace AJ Lee since her departure.
I for sure cannot wait until Finn Balor gets introduced. As I feel his gimmick will bring a new lease of life to the brand. There isn’t really anything ‘mysterious’ in the WWE except Bray Wyatt. I feel like Finn Balor could be a sort of modern day Undertaker. Perhaps not as dominating or ‘scary’. But he has that really unique entrance. Then again, I suppose they’re pushing Bray Wyatt as the new Undertaker.
