NXT Roster

NXT Men: Shinsuke Nakamura, Final Testament, Viking Raiders, Cedric & Adonis, O.C.

Shinsuke Nakamura has had an abysmal heel run on Raw due to a plethora of losses in matches, so he needs to regain his momentum in developmental territory and remind fans why he is main event material. Final Testament and O.C. already teased that they are targeting tag gold in NXT, so they're locks. Ivar is already targeting Oba Femi for the North American Title. Cedric Alexander and Ashanti Thee Adonis teased the idea of forming a tag team on the main roster. However, they never followed through with a debut match due to the competition in that division, so they're better off in NXT.

NXT Women: Shayna Baszler, Tegan Nox, Valhalla, Nikki Cross, Natalya

Shayna Baszler is already involved in an NXT storyline with Lola Vice, so she's a lock to go down to NXT and remind everyone why she was a former NXT World Champion. Tegan Nox needs some repackaging after a failed main roster run. Valhalla will be there with the Viking Raiders. Nikki Cross also needs some repackaging after a failed main roster run. Natalya is already involved in the same NXT storyline with Lola Vice and she would be a decent veteran to help put over young talent in NXT, as it is clear that her aspirations for world championships on the main roster are long and gone.
