I’d 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.

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.

well if internet fans keep pushing for "muh in ring" as much as they are wwe will have to respond. unfortunately 80% of the audience doesn't care if you used a rare submission last seen in World of Sport in the 70s. they just want to watch big guys kick ass, which none of the vanilla midgets can do.

I have a feeling the NXT UK pool is more restricted when it comes to heading to the main roster because many are not even under full time contracts with the company.

If I had to guess
I think Pete Dunne may make it to a more sports centric Smackdown (if that even happens) he had a good showing in the Royal Rumble in January and I think that
sometimes gives a indication of how management view a talent.

I do see Moustache mountain possibly making it also to boost up the main roster tag team division in the near future, they are a damn good team and it is easy to imagine them in the mix against the likes of The Revival, The Uso's, New Day, Viking Raiders etc and they are good showmen which will help on a main roster product.

I think that is it for the guys, the rest are either not signed exclusively, do not want to leave the UK ie: WALTER or just do not have the look for the main roster.

I think a few of the women stand a chance most likely Toni Storm and Rhea Ripley.
Storm won the Mae Young classic which was again indicative of how management sees her value, Kairi Sane won it and she is now on the main roster plus Storm is a great talent that could be a top player in the division, a far better option at the top than mediocre green Lacey Evans.
I think Rhea Ripley will appeal due to her size and power as WWE are lacking a big bad in their women's division, Nia Jax was a flop and Tamina has been booked into irrelevency for years.
