NXT Stars Debut On WWE Raw

NXT Stars Debut On WWE Raw WWE

Two stars from WWE’ NXT made their WWE Raw debut on tonight’s show (May 29) including an unfamiliar face you may have never seen before!

Kevin Ventura-Cortes and Javier Bernal appeared on tonight’s episode of WWE Raw in a match against Indus Sher (Veer and Sanga) after being previously reported as being backstage at the show. 

Unfortunately for the pair, they had a rather crushing loss to Veer and Sanga although Corey Graves on commentary did say Javier Bernal’s name.

But however missed the mark with not revealing that he is actually a very captivating NXT star with a fun moniker so go on with your main roster television debut Big Body Javi!

The unfamiliar face in the duo was Kevin Ventura-Cortes, another performance center recruit although one without an established television character as of now.

Ventura-Cortes is a WWE NXT trainee who has not yet made his television debut having signed with WWE after the SummerSlam 2022 tryouts.

He reported to the WWE Performance Center in the fall of 2022 and shared a video of being accepted onto the WWE developmental program on social media.

Javier Bernal has consistently appeared on WWE television, appearing on NXT Level Up and WWE NXT after making his debut on WWE 205 Live in January 2022.

NXT Battleground took place over Memorial Day weekend with the next stop for the brand being WWE NXT Bash at the Beach on July 30 2023.

Full results from WWE NXT Battleground 2023 were as follows:

North American Championship – Wes Lee (c) def. Joe Gacy, Tyler Bate
