Before making his return to WWE’s main roster earlier this year, Drew McIntyre was a part of NXT. Throughout his time with the developmental brand, McIntyre got to work with several up-and-coming future World Champions. He even won the NXT World Title himself for a brief period of time, before dropping it to Andrade “Cien” Almas in Houston.
Now, McIntyre is one of the top stars on Monday Night Raw. He is expected to be making a push for the Universal Title in his near future. With that being said, “The Scottish Psychopath” was recently interviewed by “Planeta Wrestling” to talk about several professional wrestling topics.
He was asked who on NXT he thinks is ready for the main roster. McIntyre named The Velveteen Dream and Ricochet as his picks:
“When I came to NXT, I knew it was the right move because NXT was in a position like it always is. It’s up here [raises hand]. Then Raw and SmackDown get some of the talent. Talent move over and then it restarts again, and it was during a restart phase that I came in.
“We started building up the roster. We started building up the towns, the towns were down. We started getting more people in the shows and watched it go up and up and up. Then we got more talent in. People started finding themselves like the Velveteen Dream, and now, from top to bottom the roster is stacked.
“[NXT] is a really good place right now so it’s hard to choose, there’s so many talented people. Everyone talks about Velveteen Dream, that’s an obvious one. Ricochet is an obvious one. It’s just everybody.”
