A WWE NXT star and multiple-time champion has said that there’s no doubt the brand is part of the main roster along with Raw and SmackDown.
Adam Cole tweeted about how the Undisputed ERA will run NXT in 2021 just like they have every other year since they signed, but one reply suggested they could instead move to the main roster.
Cole responded by writing:
@WWENXT is main roster. No debate. End of story.
As much as Cole can say there’s “no debate”, there most definitely is one to be had. On one hand, NXT is a two-hour show on national television in its own right, just like Raw and SmackDown are.
However, it’s run by a completely different party in a completely different way, and is often ignored by Vince McMahon when roster switches do happen.
