It’s noticeable that Superstars who move from NXT to Raw or SmackDown do not find immediate success. In fact, sometimes the pro-wrestlers have to put in more work than the main roster Superstars to find fame on the main roster.

Vince Russo and Dr. Chris Featherstone discussed this issue on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW. According to the former WWE write, Vince Russo, the internal problems between Triple H and Vince McMahon are becoming an obstacle for NXT Superstars to rise on Raw or SmackDown.

Russo said, “This is, I’m telling you, Chris, this is because you are never going to know about this. They are never going to show their hand. Bro, this is the Triple H-Vince thing.”

He continued, “I’m telling you because of what you just said. Listen, I will say this, Chris. I know these people are not stupid. I know these people are not inept. They are capable. I know they are capable. So I’m not saying they are morons, they are stupid, they don’t know what they are doing. No bro, they are capable.”

“They do know what they are doing. That’s why I know there is stuff going on here politically. God forbid if it’s Stephanie siding with Triple H against Vince. Like, forget it. If that is the case, Vince will ruin it. If one time, bro, Stephanie took Hunter’s side over Vince’s, bro, Vince could put the kibosh on this thing.” concluded Russo.

This discussion came after WWE was criticized for bringing Karrion Kross over to WWE Raw but taking away Scarlett from his corner and hampering the character he built while working with NXT.

Vince Russo is of the opinion that WWE and Vince McMahon want to bring the NXT Superstars to a breaking point. They want to test how long the pro-wrestlers can take being buried before they react.

“These guys, we build you, build you, build you, okay, bro. Now we’re going to take you down a few pegs to see if you can take it. It’s like, it’s so insane, man! They don’t care. It’s their ego. Like horses, they’re going to break them. We’re going to break you!” H/t Sportskeeda
