Multiple NXT Stars Debut, Stars Off Live Events, Lesnar’s Plane

It was only a couple of weeks ago when four top NXT Superstars debuted on the main roster. Aleister Black, Ricochet, Tommaso Ciampa, and Johnny Gargano have been competing on Raw and SmackDown lately, and the belief is that they will likely be moving up permanently after NXT Takeover: New York. Their main roster call-ups came not long after NXT lost Heavy Machinery, Lacey Evans and more as well. Fortunately for NXT, four new stars made their debuts during last night’s live event in Venice, Florida. Fans witnessed the debuts of Brendan Vick, Eliot Sexton, and the 3.0 tag team (consisting of Matt Lee and and Jeff Parker.) It will be interesting to see what these individuals will be able to accomplish now that they have begun working NXT shows.

One of the top matches set for WrestleMania 35 is Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championshiip. WWE has been building towards this match ever since Rollins won the men’s Royal Rumble match since January, which may explain why the company is being extra cautious with Rollins right now. Cageside Seats has noted that WWE has gone back to keeping Epllims off of live events. He won’t be working any shows this weekend possibly as a safety measure to prevent him from receiving any potential injuries before WrestleMania 35. The report also adds that Rey Mysterio, Daniel Bryan, and The Miz are also being kept off of weekend live events for unknown reasons.
Brock Lesnar can be a bit of a polarizing figure in WWE, but no one can argue with the success that he has had. Who else on the WWE roster can afford to purchase their very own plane? During the latest edition of the Something to Wrestle With podcast, Bruce Prichard talked about the reaction backstage when he bought a plane back in 2004. Prichard confirmed the story and said that Lesnar did what he wanted to do because it made is life easier. As far as the reaction backstage goes, Prichard believes that there may have been some jealousy and the perception that Lesnar wasn’t a team player was there, but since Lesnar wasn’t costing the company money, he had no issue with Lesnar traveling on his own. Lesnar reportedly hated WWE’s travel schedule and ended up leaving the company after WrestleMania XX that year.
