Over the past few years, NXT has been the breeding ground for a lot of WWE superstars, and has produced guys and women who have both been multiple time world champion’s at this stage in their career. Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, just to name a few, are all born and bred in the NXT brand.
Current NXT Champion, Bobby Roode, won the NXT Championship from Shinsuke Nakamura at NXT TakeOver: San Antonio, and has been having a great run ever since winning the title.
It’s being reported that officials would like Bobby Roode to be up and running on the main roster by the end of the year, and possibly even sooner rather than later.
There’s no word on which brand he may join yet, but it looks like we won’t have to wait until post-WrestleMania shows to see the Glorious one on WWE Television.
Bobby Roode is set to defend the NXT Championship against Drew Mcintyre at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III.
