Several enhancement talents will be signed for NXT, as few top stars of the territory will be leaving for the main roster.

It is expected that most of them, may have to pull double-duties, until NXT Takeover : Brooklyn.

Regarding former employees, it is not specifically noted which superstars WWE wants to re-sign.

In the mean time WWE announced that, former Cruiserweight Champion Tajiri and former multi-time WWE Tag team Champion Brian Kendrick will be participating in the upcoming Global Cruiserweight Series.

Both of them being former employees of the company, reports, there is a possibilty that they may be used in the main roster as well.
