Multiple NXT 2.0 Stars Reportedly Could Be About To To Receive Main Roster Call Ups


Since returning to WWE and assuming the roles of Head of Talent Relations and Head of Creative, Triple H has made numerous efforts to freshen up both the Raw and Smackdown rosters, having called up IYO SKY (FKA Io Shirai), as well as re-signing Karrion Kross and Scarlett, Dexter Lumis, Dakota Kai, Hit Row, and Johnny Gargano.

It now appears as though in addition to Io Shirai, multiple NXT stars may be in line for a main roster call up following a recent report from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“The entire Legado group, with Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, Cruz Del Toro and Elektra Lopez, is going to the main roster. Other names that have been talked about in that regard are Solo Sikoa and Indi Hartwell, although no time frame for either.”


Legado Del Fantasma’s main roster call up will likely come as a surprise to few, as due to losing to Tony D’Angelo during the recent NXT Heatwave show, Santos Escobar has been forced to leave NXT 2.0. Last Tuesday’s NXT 2.0 saw Escobar reuniting with his stablemates, thus setting up the faction for an eventual main roster call up together.

Additionally, PWInsider recently reported that there has been “a lot of talk” regarding a potential Solo Sikoa call up as soon as next month, and thus a main roster move for “The Street Champion of the Island” seems inevitable.

Time will tell as to where the above names will land on the main roster, as well as whether any other unmentioned NXT 2.0 will also be joining them.
