Will the NXT UK guys ever come up to the main roster?

Id like to see Tyler Bate, Pete Dunne or some of the others come up. Especially Dunne who has a ton of talent IMO.

Depends on how the main roster trends. He’s technically a cruiserweights, but then again most of Undisputed Era, Ricochet, and Johnny Gargano are too. I still wonder if he would be considered too small for the main roster, but like Taz in ECW he has the persona to counter it.

Dunno. Most of them don't have full contracts in place, so they'd have to sign one before thinking about a main roster spot.

Re: Will the NXT UK guys ever come up to the main roster?

A few probably.

Pete Dunne is a guy I could see them throwing on 205 Live and then eventually Raw and SD. Toni Storm and Rhea Ripley are 2 women's prospects who will probably be on Raw or SD one day.

After that I'm not seeing anyone else really. Tyler Bate is really good in the ring, but that's about it. 205 Live is probably his ceiling. Trent Seven isn't going anywhere unless it's as a package deal with Dunne and Bate. Walter doesn't seem to have any interest in leaving the UK. And most everyone else doesn't feel like anyone would make them a priority.

One name that could make that jump is Zack Gibson with his promo ability.

I could see Dunne and Bates. Walter. Maybe the Coffey brothers, the main roster likes a big hard hitting tag team from time to time.

Rhea, Toni, maybe Pete. Nobody else even has a chance.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

IF they value their reputation they'll stay on NxTUK or go to a company that isnt run by a senile old man.

Why are people so eager to see people they like "promoted" to the main roster? I'd rather see them stay in NXT or NXTUK as they will be used better
