There has never been anything quite like NXT in the world of wrestling.
What started as a cringeworthy talent show evolved into a chance for developmental talent to receive limited exposure through a one hour, online-only program. NXT's focus on traditional professional wrestling, incredibly high match quality and showcasing big-name talent from around the world found the brand's popularity grow at an exponential rate until, in September 2019, it became a two hour, nationally televised broadcast. Whether that was a good move for the show is up for debate but one thing has become clear - NXT is now every bit the brand that RAW and SmackDown are.
As such, returning to NXT is now a viable career path for any WWE superstar who has, for one reason or another, struggled to gain a foothold on either RAW or SmackDown. This list will show a group of wrestlers who would benefit from a return to NXT, either for practical or storyline purposes, as well as one veteran who would do well to make his debut for the black and yellow brand.
