It appears the four NXT Superstars who appeared on last week’s Raw and SmackDown Live are heading to the main roster on a full-time basis.
Many believed that the appearances made by Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, and Ricochet were one time deals, similar to the appearances made by the likes of Sami Zayn and Charlotte Flair in years gone by.
However, at an NXT live event last night, The Dutch Destroyer himself gave a farewell speech to the fans in attendance.

Black defeated Elias on last week’s Raw, before seeing off long term NXT rival Andrade on SmackDown Live.
It has already been announced that Aleister will be teaming up with Ricochet to face the team of Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura on this week’s SmackDown Live.
Last week, it was reported that Vince McMahon asked Triple H for his four best guys from NXT due to a perceived lack of great wrestlers on Monday Night Raw. It’s said that Messrs Black, Ricochet, Gargano, and Ciampa will be pushed really strongly over the coming weeks to make bonafide stars out of them.
