5 NXT Superstars who are destined to be World Champions in the main roster
NXT is a revolutionary concept brought forward by the WWE. What started off as a reality show featuring rookies from WWE's previous developmental territory FCW, has now evolved into a separate brand with a unique roster of its own.
The reality TV aspect of the show was dropped in early 2012 and the reins were handed over to Triple H who has successfully made NXT into the third major brand of the WWE complementing Raw and SmackDown Live.
With the emergence of NXT and the WWE Performance Center, aspiring professional wrestlers from all over the world are given an opportunity to shine in the big leagues.
Many superstars coming out from the NXT brand have successfully become world champions on the main roster. Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Finn Balor & Kevin Owens are living testimonies that NXT is capable of creating the future superstars of the WWE.
A plethora of talented performers are in the WWE's development brand right now and are waiting for their opportunity to make an impact when they are called up to the main roster.
Let's take a look at 5 NXT superstars who are destined to be world champions on the main roster when they are called up.
#5 Andrade "Cien" Almas
We'll start this list with the current reigning NXT Champion Andrade "Cien" Almas. After his stint on the independent circuit performing as " La Sombra", Almas made his NXT debut in November 2015.
The 28-year-old superstar now holds all the momentum in his hands after becoming the NXT Heavyweight Champion after defeating Drew McIntyre at NXT Take Over War Games in November 2017.
With Zelena Vega by his side, Almas has all it takes to be one of the best heels on the main roster when he is eventually called up and there is no denying that he will become the WWE Champion in the near future.
