10 Current NXT Stars Who Will Struggle On WWE's Main Roster

Into the fire.

From the moment of its establishment five years ago, NXT has become the place to go for a glimpse of the WWE stars of tomorrow.

And yet there's no guarantee that all those currently plying their trade down in Orlando will reach the heights of which they are expected when they step up to the main roster, where the demands and pressure are far greater than anything they have experienced so far.

From Bo Dallas and The Ascension to Emma and Tyler Breeze, there have been countless examples over recent years of NXT graduates who struggled - at least to match their accomplishments in the developmental ranks - after being moved to Raw and SmackDown.

Most of the time, this stems not from any lack of talent, but rather the absence of opportunity. The first few months a budding young wrestler spends on the main roster can be all-important in shaping their career - this is why Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura, for example, have done so well.
