The possible additions of NXT superstars to the SmackDown Live roster have been leaked. WWE has published the preview of the show on its website and has hinted that tonight as happened on Monday Night Raw, NXT superstars could appear live on the blue brand show. We are talking about Iconic Duo (Peyton Royce and Billie Kay) and Tommaso Ciampa. The plans may change but none of them traveled back to Orlando after Wrestlemania unlike the rest of the expedition.
The Iconic Duo has had a minor role in NXT over the past few months but has gained a lot of fame and is waiting for his moment on the main roster for a long time. Peyton Royce debuted on the main roster at Wrestlemania 34 participating in the Women’s Battle Royal. Billie Kay returned to the action on March 9 at a live NXT event after being several months out due to an implant operation.
Tommaso Ciampa was away from the quadrilaterals for half a year due to rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. The fighter was subjected to an operation and did not return to television until the beginning of 2018. Ciampa has been involved in a rivalry with Johnny Gargano and Takeover: New Orleans lost to him. Gargano was supposed to go up the main roster because if he lost that fight he was not going to regain his position in NXT but the plans changed.
It should be noted that apart from Peyton Royce, Billie Kay and Tommaso Ciampa some other NXT talent could appear tonight. During the last few days, it has been speculated that Andrade “Cien” Almas, SAnitY or some talent from the United Kingdom was going to land in the ranks of SmackDown but none of them is in New Orleans.
