5 predictions for the main roster brand each new NXT call-up will debut on
After hitting the lowest points in the company's history of television ratings, WWE had to improve the product. The Chairman of the company, Vince McMahon, was then advertised to make an appearance on RAW in order to shake things up.
Among the changes promised by the chairman and his family was the arrival of new faces on the main roster: four singles competitors, and a tag team unit from NXT.
These new signings are Nikki Cross, Lacey Evans, EC3, Lars Sullivan, and the tag team of Otis Dozovic and Tucker Knight, Heavy Machinery. Each of them are exciting prospects, regardless of whichever brand they go to.
But considering the state of each brand, they must be carefully placed so they don't get lost in the shuffle, like numerous other NXT call-ups before them.
#5 Heavy Machinery (RAW)
Lets just look at the tag team division of SmackDown for a moment; we have The Bar as the champions, with major teams like The Usos and The New Day always in line for the top spot.
And after the changes promised by the McMahons, the tag division seems to have new life, with the Good Brothers and Sanity entering the fray. With these five teams competing on the brand, the SmackDown tag division is in safe hands.
Compare this to RAW.
Rhyno was fired, Matt Hardy retired, The B Team is again irrelevant, and Lucha House Party are heels in face skins (who haven't firmly set themselves on the main roster).
Despite the talents involved, the team of Roode and Gable are just place holders until one of them turns on the other, but that's just my opinion though. The Revival and Authors of Pain are the only hope for RAW's tag division.
Heavy Machinery's inclusion in the division would be mutually beneficial for both the team, as well as the brand.
On RAW, Heavy Machinery would get ample opportunity to cement themselves as the top team, at the same time, their fun in ring style gels well with RAW's entertainment factor.
