A top WWE NXT star is slated to make his main roster debut soon and that’s Matt Riddle.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Daily Update on F4Wonline.com on Monday evening that “Riddle’s main roster debut right now is scheduled to be imminent.”
WWE has already confirmed that Riddle is slated to take on Timothy Thatcher in Cage Match on this Wednesday’s episode of NXT on the USA Network from Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University.
Meltzer speculated that this match could either be his blow-off feud to send him out of NXT due to him going to the main roster or lead to it. As of this writing, there’s no word yet on which brand he’ll be on – RAW or SmackDown.
Riddle has confirmed in the past through various interviews that he does have some backstage heat within WWE but downplayed WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon not liking him.
Previously announced for Wednesday’s NXT includes Charlotte Flair & mystery partner vs. Io Shirai & Rhea Ripley, Adam Cole to do a segment that is likely to set up the NXT Takeover: In Your House Title match, and Kushida vs. Drake Maverick vs. Jake Atlas in a three-way for the A block in the Interim Cruiserweight Classic Tournament.
