A major NXT star and former champion is reportedly set to be called up to the main roster by shifting to the WWE SmackDoiwn brand soon.
The report notes that there have been talks of moving Riddle to SmackDown since before WrestleMania, but plans were put on hold through and after the event until a few weeks ago.
Riddle has a ‘cage fight’ match against Timothy Thatcher on this week’s episode of NXT, for which Kurt Angle will serve as special guest referee. It is unknown whether this will be Riddle’s yellow brand sendoff, but it’s definitely possible.
This comes after Riddle & Thatcher dropped the NXT Tag Team Championship to Imperium a couple of weeks ago. Thatcher was picked by Pete Dunne to be his temporary replacement in teaming with Riddle while he can’t travel in from the UK.
