Despite the label of 'developmental', many believe that NXT is the best program the WWE has to offer, but no matter what, everyone's goal down there is to reach RAW or Smackdown Live, and ultimately, the WrestleMania pinnacle. For some, that's obviously going to happen. Others have to continue working on their game if they wish to get over on the biggest stages in the WWE, and today, we are going to look at one side of that.

So without further ado, read along as we take a look to the brilliant NXT brand, and analyse 5 performers that we think are ready for the main roster already (even if they aren't going to be promoted in the immediate future).

#5 Matt Riddle

The King of Bros has been one of the most highly touted performers in the wrestling business over the past few years, and in his time in NXT, he's clearly proven that he's a future World Champion all throughout the WWE. Riddle just had a classic with Velveteen Dream in New York, and despite the loss, he looks more and more like the star we all know he can be, and despite being quite young in his WWE career, he's arguably the most main roster ready performer in NXT.

Combining his laid back charisma and charm with his legitimate MMA background and devastating striking arsenal, the former UFC star can wrestle any style of match imaginable, and that's perhaps why he is so ready for the biggest stage the WWE has to offer.

Riddle has made no secret of the fact that he wants to be the one to retire Brock Lesnar, and with the depth of talent in NXT, he may be pushed quickly through the ranks, and let's just say that it's quite possible WrestleMania 36 will pit The Beast against The Bro with Lesnar's career on the line.
