RUMOR: Top Independent Stars May Be Headed to NXT

Candice LaRae has been spotted backstage in Orlando at the NXT tapings this evening.  Dave Meltzer reported earlier that WWE had expressed interest in her and is doing due diligence before she’s officially signed to the NXT roster.  As she’s the wife of NXT star Johnny Gargano, this would work out quite well for both of them.

Also of note is the presence backstage of Ring of Honor television champ, Silas Young.  Here’s a screen cap of the tweet from Silas not even a day ago:

The NXT tapings tonight will go through to the Royal Rumble.  It’s possible both could be involved in “NXT TakeOver:  Philadelphia” as well.  We’ll have more information on these stories as it becomes available.
