In a candid interview with “TV Insider,” WWE’s reigning “NXT” Women’s Champion, Tiffany Stratton, shared her thoughts on the influx of main roster stars making appearances on “NXT” in recent times. While she believes that “NXT” should primarily focus on its own talent, she also acknowledged the invaluable contribution that veteran stars can make in shaping and guiding the rising “NXT” stars.
“I definitely feel like it’s not needed. I feel like ‘NXT’ should just be for the girls in ‘NXT’ and the ‘NXT’ division,” asserted the confident “NXT” Women’s Champion.
However, Stratton went on to highlight the positive impact that experienced wrestlers like Rhea Ripley, Dana Brooke, and Natalya can have on the young and aspiring talent of “NXT.”
“But it does help a lot to have someone like Rhea Ripley come down, Dana Brooke, Nattie Neidhart to help the NXT girls and guide them through things and help establish them better. I do think it’s a big help though,” she expressed, acknowledging the value of their presence.

In recent months, the “NXT” brand has witnessed an interesting mix of main roster stars, with some even transitioning to “NXT” on a permanent basis. Notably, the “NXT” Gold Rush event saw World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins take on Bron Breakker, adding an electrifying twist to the dynamic.
Meanwhile, the highly anticipated Judgment Day event saw Dominik Mysterio seize the “NXT” North American Championship from Wes Lee, further exemplifying the cross-brand interactions.
Even Baron Corbin made a strategic move to “NXT” after not being drafted in the WWE Draft, and he showcased his talents against “NXT” Champion Carmelo Hayes at Gold Rush, leaving fans intrigued.
As the “NXT” landscape continues to evolve, it appears that the mix of main roster stars and “NXT” talents will continue to be an intriguing aspect of the brand, with potential for further collaborations and explosive showdowns.
