Since her debut on WWE NXT 2.0 in February, there’s been a lot of talk about Nikkita Lyons becoming a big star when she eventually makes it onto the main roster.
Lyons is regularly featured on the shows. On the weeks when she’s not wrestling, she’s featured in video packages and backstage skits. The crowd at the Capitol Wrestling Center has been given her positive reactions during her matches and there’s been a lot of buzz about her on social media.
During his appearance on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Dave Meltzer said that he believes that management sees potential in her and they are taking advantage of the buzz she’s getting.
“Yea, I think that they like the reaction that she got,” Meltzer said. “I don’t see her as a Bron Breakker type of thing where they fast track her where as Bron Breakker and Gable Steveson are probably gonna get fast tracked up [to the main roster]. She’s over. I don’t even know if they knew how over she was gonna get at first. Yea, I can see taking advantage of something that’s there.”
Another sign that management sees potential in her is that she is now booked to work with Natalya. Natalya’s role in NXT is to work with the younger talent and to help them improve their in-ring work.
