As mentioned in my previous post, NXT is shaping the future of the WWE by creating new superstars who will carry the company in the next decade. NXT was the home of some of the biggest WWE Superstars today, they include Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Drew McIntyre, Sasha Banks, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens.

Triple H has done a wonderful job of signing new talent on a regular basis, with new recruits like Matt Riddle, Keith Lee, Punishment Martinez, Dominik Dijakovic, Chelsea Green, and Io Shirai.

However, the WWE main roster is sometimes too overwhelming for some NXT talents called up. For every Reigns, Rollins, McIntyre, Zayn, or Owens, who do good on the main roster, there are superstars like Bo Dallas, Apollo Crews, Tyler Breeze, Tye Dillinger, and No Way Jose, who have not made a huge impact.

Here are five NXT Superstars who might not succeed on the main roster. It should be noted that this list only features male NXT talent.


#5 Ricochet

Many hardcore WWE fans do not want to hear this, but there is a chance Ricochet might not succeed on the main roster. Don't get me wrong, Ricochet is arguably the most talented superstar on NXT today.

His athleticism is unmatched, but he needs to work on his mic skills first. He also has to bulk up due to a preference of bigger performers on the main roster.

There is real fear that Vince might take one look at Ricochet and move him to 205 Live. That won't be bad since he's going to carry the cruiserweight division, but he might grow unsatisfied like Neville.

The second worst case scenario for Ricochet is for him to have the career trajectory of Finn Balor, who started super hot, but faded after suffering an injury.

Nevertheless, there is no denying Ricochet's star power and wrestling ability. All-time WWE great, The Rock, even endorsed him as a future WWE Champion.
