As previously noted, WWE NXT star Eric Bugenhagen made his Smackdown debut on the May 21st 2021 episode as Rik Boogs.
Fightful Select is reporting that Boogs’ call-up to the main roster from NXT could be the first of several in the near future. It was noted that there are plans for talent from both NXT and NXT UK to debut on the main roster. Fightful stated that “multiple” call-ups “have been planned or at least in the works for a while, spanning across both RAW and Smackdown.”
At this point, it’s unknown how many stars will be called up or when exactly it will happen. People within NXT are reportedly speculating about who will be joining the main roster next.
With WWE set to resume live event touring in July, it remains to be seen if any NXT stars are written off television at the Takeover: In Your House PPV on Sunday, June 13th.
