Dominik Dijakovic looks set to become the next WWE NXT wrestler to move to what would formerly be classified as a "main roster" brand.
Following on from a WrestleTalk report that the 33-year-old was on his way out of the black-and-gold brand was Dave Meltzer, who confirmed that while there's no word on when, exactly, the big man will land, Dijakovic is on his way to Raw. The original story hadn't indicated which show the former NXT North American Championship contender was heading to.
Dijakovic hasn't wrestled on NXT television since losing to Johnny Gargano on the 29 April episode. This came following the conclusion of his long-running rivalry with Keith Lee in a Triple Threat that also included Damian Priest, in which the 6'7" former basketball player was once again unable to claim the North American Title.
Joining WWE in 2017, Dijakovic has always stood out for his size and freakish athleticism, though he has struggled to make the same kind of impact as Lee, whom he has a longstanding relationship with following their time on the independents. News of his "call-up" follows last week's Fightful story that more wrestlers would soon follow SmackDown-bound Matt Riddle out of NXT.
