Molly Holly Names WWE NXT Stars Who'll Thrive On The Main Roster
These NXT names could strike it big once they make it to the WWE main roster...
Nowadays serving as a producer in WWE, Hall of Famer Molly Holly has detailed the NXT stars who she expects to make a big splash on the WWE main roster in the coming years.
Speaking during a Captain's Corner virtual signing event (as per POST Wrestling), Molly had plentiful praise for Carmelo Hayes, Kiana James, Zoey Stark, Nathan Frazer and Dante Chen.
As the two-time WWE Women's Champion explained:
"Carmelo, I think if you're talking about men. I think Carmelo's doing a great job. And as far as the women, her name starts with a K and she was, like, a dancer and she's into gymnastics. She dresses like a businesswoman. Ah, I forgot. Kiana? I forgot her name, but I really liked her, and oh, Zoey is one of the most amazing athletes I've ever seen. So, I think they've got a ton of great talent there. It seems like anyone who comes up for a tryout... Nathan Frazer just did a match against Bronson, I think, and I was really impressed with his stuff too. Oh, and there was a kid who just came up and did a match... Dante. Dante was his name, and I liked him a lot."
With WWE famous for moving NXT stars to the main roster in the aftermath of WrestleMania, there's been plentiful speculation that some of the above names could well be set to head to Raw or SmackDown in the coming weeks. In particular, Zoey Stark seems a shoe-in for a main roster switch in the imminent future, whilst Carmelo Hayes could well be find himself on the move should he come up short against NXT Champion Bron Breakker at Stand & Deliver next weekend.
Taking place next Saturday afternoon, the current card for Stand & Deliver reads as follows:
- NXT Champion Bron Breakker vs. Carmelo Hayes
