Four Top NXT Names Backstage

It has been reported that four of the top names currently in NXT have been seen arriving and are backstage for tonight’s Raw.  This is spoiler info so we separated it in case you don’t wish to be spoiled…




NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, Ricochet, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano and Aleister Black have been spotted backstage and according to PWInsider, there are plans to use them tonight. Obviously, script changes happen so they could be there for a dark match or they could be making their main roster debuts tonight or they could just be backstage for some other reason.


S.A.M.’s Spiel: This is certainly interesting to say the least. These four men are arguably the top guys in NXT, so I would not understand them being used on the main roster this close to Wrestlemania. I would gather that if one or all of them are used that it would be for a possible Intercontinental Open Challenge since Finn Balor is the new champion and the open challenges have been primarily used by babyfaces.
