In recent weeks, WWE Superstars have been jumping across brands. Cesaro recently appeared on NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff; Kassius Ohno has become a mainstay on NXT UK, and both NXT UK’s Pete Dunne and Rhea Ripley have been featured on WWE’s NXT brand.
The first is ‘The Bruiserweight’ Pete Dunne. Dunne is apparently in the process of attaining the necessary visas that would allow him to live in the United States, becoming a full-time member of the black-and-gold brand in the process.
He recently came back to NXT and competed in a triple-threat matchup against The Velveteen Dream and Roderick Strong at NXT TakeOver: Toronto in August. Velveteen Dream would successfully defend his NXT North American Championship. Dunne holds the record as NXT UK’s longest-running NXT UK Champion.
The second name is the former NXT UK Women’s Champion, Toni Storm. There are reportedly big plans in place for Storm if and when she becomes a permanent fixture on NXT. Storm recently dropped the championship to Kay Lee Ray at NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff.
NXT moves to USA Network on September 18th, extending to a new two-hour time slot.
