Imperium has been one of the top factions on NXT and NXT UK since its formation but former member Alexander Wolfe believes the group would "fail miserably" on the main roster. Wolfe did note he thinks WALTER would enjoy a great amount of success, though.
"I think it would fail miserably on the main roster, but not for WALTER though. I think he would be fine because he's amazing. He's definitely a cash cow for WWE. I would say I would love to see those guys be successful on the main roster and run through all the divisions, the tag team divisions, the title divisions, and conquer everything and become freaking millionaires and everything, so I wish them all the best. But I'm not sure about it, because that one year of main roster experience just taught me a lot. [Mainly], that no matter what they tell you in the beginning, nothing is guaranteed in that business," Wolfe told The Angle Podcast.
Wolfe was a member of Imperium from June 2019 until May 18, 2021, when Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner turned on him following his loss to Killian Dain. The former NXT Tag Team Champion was then told by WWE they wouldn't be renewing his contract next month.
