“The Drifter” Elias Samson is likely headed to the main roster soon. My guess is that he will debut after WrestleMania since there really is no reason to debut a new character during WrestleMania season.
Dave Meltzer reports that Samson was originally supposed to debut on the main roster several months ago but that got delayed when he suffered a broken ankle.
Samson lost a “Loser Leaves NXT” match against Kassius Ohno at the recent set of NXT tapings but still wrestled at one of the live events over the weekend. He came out under a mask using the name El Vagabundo.
