I’m wondering if there remains any motivation left for NXT stars to move to the main roster. I know there is a bump in pay, but is it really worth it? Is it the dream to be WWE champion? It was Jon Moxley’s dream and listen to how miserable he was.
Look at the most recent call ups. I mean Aleister Black is reduced to spitting out garbage in a broom closet with the lights out.
In NXT, wrestlers are truly appreciated for their skills. They get to truly dive in to their characters. The travel schedule isn’t as grueling.
So what’s the motivation? Johnny Gargano dodged a huge bullet. I’m sure Undisputed Era will become jobbers. Velveteen Dream will become the next Adam Rose. I bet they all dread when the Superstar Shake Up comes around.
Does anyone know how long the contracts are when they first sign on to NXT? Is it 5 years? I would just be content to do 5 years in NXT and then move on.
