I won’t go into detail as I’ll only be repeating what others have said. I’m a bit out of touch with NXT so didn’t get as absorbed into the action as I did with Survivor Series but this was a enjoyable event with every match delivering, even the Ohno match which people seem to be crapping on I thought was pretty watchable.

Surprised to see Cien win, McIntyre main roster bound perhaps?

War Games was decent but too much of a clusterfuck for me.

Drew is a strange one, even more so to use him as this transitional Champion. I would assume he's main roster bound but i'm not sure if his injury is genuine or not.

Under his new dark babyface gimmick I think he could be a huge success on the main roster and even be a headliner. He has all the tools, the look, the size, charisma, mic skills and he’s still young. This character is much more effective than his previous chosen one heel gimmick.

definitely a much better gimmick now than he has ever had in the past. this is the kind of gimmick they should have given Miz when they turned him face, so that it didn't seem out of place him insulting other guys as openly as he did when a heel.

though i'd be surprised if he's called up rpior to Mania, I wouldn't be surprised to see him entered into te Rumble match.

Calling guys up prior to Wrestlemania is senseless unless they have a solid plan for the talent in question, they did it with Samoa Joe last year and he didn’t even feature at Mania.

Post-Wrestlemania when the part-time guys either vanish or go back to non-wrestling roles is the best time for a influx of new talent on to the main roster, this is when I would look to see any from McIntyre, Alistair Black, the Authors of Pain, Sanity and maybe even Velveteen Dream arrive.
