5 main roster Superstars who could appear on WWE NXT's USA Network premiere
This week, NXT moves to USA Network, with the 18th September show the first to air on television rather than the WWE Network. We could be in for quite a few surprises on the premiere of the show, including a few main roster Superstars making an appearance.
We saw Finn Balor and Cesaro wrestle at NXT UK shows recently, and WWE could spring a surprise by adding a few Superstars from RAW and SmackDown on the show.
Let's take a look at 5 main roster Superstars who could appear on WWE NXT's USA Network premiere:
#5 Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens was fired by Shane McMahon last week on SmackDown, and put out a cryptic tweet which fans believe is a sign that he will head back to NXT this coming week.
NXT founder Triple H was asked about Owens moving to NXT, to which he said that he would love to have The Prizefighter in NXT.
While speaking to Alex McCarthy of Talksport, Triple H had this to say about Owens: "I think Kevin Owens is one of the best, most talented guys in the industry today. If there was a chance at him being in NXT today, I would jump all over that... if he was legitimately fired [laughs]."
PWInsider also reported the same a few days ago, revealing that Owens will be in Orlando and at the NXT show: “The expectation is that Kevin Owens will be in Orlando this week on September 18th and he will appear for the NXT brand. Whether he’s there for a short period of time or it’s a long-term thing I don’t know, but the expectation is that Owens will be part of the Wednesday NXT episode on September 18th.”
The former NXT Champion will certainly make the show a memorable one, and his star power could keep those that haven't watched NXT before hooked onto the show.
