Interesting name backstage at WWE SmackDown



PWInsider reported today that a WWE NXT star is backstage at SmackDown.

Roderick Strong, who lost last Tuesday to Gunther (WALTER), is said to be backstage to wrestle a dark match tonight. Strong is a former NXT North American Champion and Cruiserweight Champion. He is the last member of The Undisputed Era to still be with the company.

Strong is 38 years old so his days at NXT 2.0 are likely numbered since there is a push to feature younger talent. The dark match tonight is likely happening so that Vince McMahon can get a look at him before he decides on if he wants to move him to the main roster.
