Quote It appears that WWE NXT star Lars Sullivan is headed to the main roster. The WWE aired a “coming soon” vignette for him during Sunday’s (November 18, 2018) Survivor Series pay-per-view event in Los Angeles, California at the Staples Center on the WWE Network.

Lars worked a match at Saturday’s NXT TV tapings before Takeover against an enhancement talent. As of this writing, there’s no word yet on when Lars is headed to Raw or SmackDown.

I have seen bits of him and would expect him to go to Smackdown? Raw has a monster type with Strowman and building up Mcintyre as a dominant heel. Plus Smackdown could do with the help after their booking last night.

Who would you want to see him against? If he ends up on Smackdown the babyface line up is low on numbers. Rey is a PORG (person of restricted growth), Jeff the Jobber hasn't done anything for a while and Bryan is now heel so that's not happening. Styles will be fueding with Bryan still. It doesn't leave a obvious candidate to have him up against.

I like these random call ups instead of the obvious of calling them up straight after Wrestlemania.

I don't like seeing Lars going up so soon. I would rather see him work a few more months in NXT, but whatever. Not interested in seeing him on the main roster. He's not bad, he's actually pretty good, but I think they need to develop more of a personality with him TBH.

Hes not good enough for the main roster - too generic for me - don't really care who he faces because he's not that interesting

I'm guessing he's going to be the next Braun Strowman where they've seen enough of his in-ring work to know he'll be ok on the main roster (because the main roster isn't nearly so technically demanding as NXT) and Vince has some idea for a crazy gimmick for the guy, and that's all that really matters. :/

Lars might be another Elias in the making someone who struggled on NXT but would be just fine on the main roster.

He has no real charisma and he sounds really bad on the Mic.

Best he can hope for is a Lesnar style booking with limited Mic time and then people may get behind him

That's what people said about Elias Samson in NXT, too. I'm willing to give the guy a shot because the Takeover matches I've seen him in especially were way better than people want to give him credit for. He's not at all bad. Given the right variables, he might surprise everyone. 

I would definitely say he is a better talent based off what we've seen so far versus where Braun Strowman was on day 1 on the main roster as the Black Sheep of the Wyatt family.

I think it’s a good call. Sullivan is better suited to the main roster than NXT, I would put him on Smackdown using the same monster heel gimmick he’s been using in NXT. He has a good power game and a unique look, he’s not the best promo so he may benefit from someone in his corner as a mouth-piece.

He’s not the first talent to have a character and ring style that doesn’t really fit NXT but should work pretty well on Raw and Smackdown, Elias, Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns are the first names that spring to mind that were very low key or unsuccessful in NXT but have found great success on the main roster. I like Lars Sullivan and I hope it works out the same way for him.

I wouldn't put him on Smackdown; they're already massively heel heavy and they've just transitioned two of their top babyfaces to the dark side. Who's left for him to feud with? You can't spend a whole year on Jeff Hardy.
