Report: Major NXT Stars Backstage At Tonight’s WWE SmackDown Taping (Updated)

Two major NXT stars could be moving up to the main roster soon.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Scarlett are backstage for tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown.

He also notes that there has been “some talk” about the duo’s call-up this past week.

Kross, managed by Scarlett, debuted on NXT last June, and he quickly rose to the top of the black-and-gold brand. He won the NXT Championship in August, but he immediately relinquished the title due to an injury. He regained the gold by beating Finn Balor at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver

WrestleZone will provide more details as they become available.
