WWE is planning more NXT talent call-ups to main roster

Vince McMahon WWE Raw SmackDown NXT

WWE NXT Superstar Rick Boogs (Eric Bugenhagen) appeared on last week’s episode of SmackDown when he interrupted a pre-match promo by King Baron Corbin by playing his guitar. Boogs said he came to rock with the real King of SmackDown, which was a reference to Shinsuke Nakamura.

Boogs played along to Nakamura’s entrance on the guitar as the WWE star made his way out to the ring for a match where he beat Corbin via pinfall as Boogs watched from ringside and played the guitar at times.

Fightful Select reported today that they were told “there are plans for additional call-ups to Raw and SmackDown, including talent from both NXT and NXT UK.”

As it stands right now, there’s no word yet on exactly who or how many people will be called up to the main roster, but NXT talent has been speculating among themselves who will be called up in recent weeks.

It was added that "multiple" call-ups have been planned or at least in the works for a while for both Raw and SmackDown.
