The WWE NXT roster is as stacked as it’s ever been, but it may be getting even more loaded according to a new report from SB Nation’s Cageside Seats: Adam Cole, War Machine and Kyle O’Reilly could all be headed to the NXT brand in the not-too-distant future.
Via Cageside Seats:
“There’s renewed talk of ex-Ring of Honor talents Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and War Machine signing with WWE soon and being assigned to NXT.”
This is very interesting for a multitude of reasons.
Cole, the biggest name of the bunch, contract expired a few months ago, but after early reports that he was headed to WWE, it has been mostly silent on the Adam Cole To NXT front.
War Machine, one of the greatest tag teams in NJPW, would be a tremendous addition to the NXT tag team division that’s already loaded with two gigantic tag teams in Authors of Pain and Heavy Machinery. If WWE were to let them keep the War Machine nickname, it’s easy to see this duo take off in NXT.
O’Reilly may be the most interesting of this list, as he’s one of the most talent wrestlers in the world, but, by himself, it’s hard to see how he fairs in an already crowded NXT scene. Bobby Fish, his longtime tag team partner, just debuted in NXT, though, so perhaps that’s the line of thinking for the WWE officials to bring them together and run with reDRagon in NXT.
Either way, nothing is official as of yet, but these would all be gigantic additions to the NXT brand that is building something special.
