WWE NXT Standout Poised for Main Roster Call-Up

The 2024 WWE Draft began last month on Friday Night SmackDown and continued on Monday Night RAW, with more draft picks announced. Quite a few NXT stars were called up to the main roster and now another NXT name is set to get a call up as well.

Many viewed last Monday’s draft as the more significant of the two nights, with a greater number of stars being called up and assigned to different brands. Among the NXT talent chosen were top names like Ilja DragunovCarmelo HayesBlair Davenport, and others, making it clear that WWE has major plans for their future on the main roster.

As previously reported, Mike Rome is set to return to announcing for NXT, role he previously held from 2016 to 2019. This move has left fans curious about what this means for Alicia Taylor, who has been the ring announcer for NXT for several years and has also filled in on the main roster when needed.

According to Fightful Select’s Corey Brennan, Alicia Taylor is being called up to the main roster after Backlash, with Rome moving back to NXT. This transition indicates that WWE is shaking up its announcing teams across the brands.



”Fightful Select’s Corey Brennan has learned that Taylor is set for her own callup to the main roster post Backlash, with Rome going the other way.”

However, there’s actually still uncertainty about which main roster shows Alicia Taylor and Samantha Irvin will be assigned to as ring announcers. Since 2019, Taylor has been a consistent presence on NXT, and her move to the main roster could mean new opportunities and challenges.

With new roles for both Taylor and Rome, fans can look forward to seeing how these changes impact the dynamics and energy of both NXT and the main roster shows in the coming weeks.
