Brandon Thurston of reported that the final segment with Rollins vs. Breakker drew 950,000 viewers. According to Dave Meltzer of, there are plans for more “major stars” to work NXT following the success of Rollins’ appearance…

“One name that was at least talked about was [Ronda] Rousey, or perhaps even having Rousey & Baszler defend the women’s tag titles there. But the goal is to use the main roster stars to increase the ratings, and the Rollins experiment was a huge success, so when something works in wrestling the idea is that you usually follow up on it.”
