It does but NXT has become its own successful brand and that's something that nobody really expected, at least not nearly to the level it's risen. As a result, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Vince has had Triple H make alterations to NXT's hiring policy. Sure, NXT works on building guys who're "homegrown" and hiring guys from the indie scene who may not be all that well known, but I'd say Trips is also told to hire major indie players if he can. Vince McMahon rarely interferes in NXT, but he does every so often and that means that Trips has to fall in line whenever Vince does decide to step in with something that he thinks should be implemented.

I'm not all that familiar with Strickland but I'm surprised Tessa Blanchard wasn't signed after the Mae Young Classic. She's got personality, a great look and she's more than solid in the ring.

Jeff Cobb has some things working against him in that he's something of a "nobody" compared to some of these others. He turns 36 in a few months and there's not a ton of buzz surrounding him unless you're a die hard indie fan. Plus, he's also signed with Lucha Underground and the way their contracts are structured can be a tricky thing. For instance, Ricochet wanted to sign with WWE nearly 2 years ago but LU wouldn't let him out of his contract until the 3rd season of their show aired, which it did but not until about a year or so of delays. Maybe it's the same thing with all the other LU wrestlers, but their 4th season is set to air in June.

Matt Riddle has gotten a lot of positive buzz and he's only been wrestling a total of maybe 3 years. He's someone I could see WWE being interested in bringing to NXT.

As for Joe Hendry, he's someone WWE could recruit for the upcoming UK Title tournament. I'm sure there'll be some new faces added rather than just going with all the same ones who were part of it last year.

I seriously hope we get to see Keith Lee in NXT in the near future. That guy has "it" on so many levels and just shits out charisma.

He already appeared in that NXT event against Kassius Ohno so I an holding my hopes up.

I think the next big stars they will sign are Eli Drake, John Morrison, Matt Riddle and Marty Scurll.
The top NJPW guys like Omega, Bucks, Ospreay etc... won't go to NXT as they are too committed to the NJPW, and they're global expension plans.
In terms of ROH, I just don't see veterans like Daniels, Kaz, Lethal, Briscoes etc... signing with WWE at that age, and I also don't see WWE signing them.

I'd say right now that there are three strong names that have a solid chance to be signed to NXT by year's end- those being Matt Riddle, Keith Lee, and Walter. All three have the combination of giant buzz, even bigger talent, and perhaps most importantly a lack of any real ties to the NJPW/ROH/CMLL/RevPro alliance(and to a lesser degree, but worth mentioning, also no ties to the new found buddy-buddy trend that is going on with LU and the new Impact team), that it takes to forecast, and qualify, as a sure major NXT signing.

With ROH doing its best business ever, NJPW committed to expanding in the states, and All-In on the near horizon; no one currently strongly tied into the New Japan/ROH/CMLL relationship is going to be jumping that ship any time soon(even if for some strange reason they aren't exclusively contracted through at least the first week of next January), so don't get your hopes up.

Sort of like with Adam Cole before, I feel like Riddle has been destined for WWE and earmarked as a sure future signing for a couple of years. He's past ready and should be signed sooner than later. Lee and Walter also seem like guys the WWE would love to add, and could again do so sooner than later, as Indy guys with their combo of size, buzz, and talent aren't the most common thing on the circuits, and they follow easy to predict signings that occurred for much the same reason- like Dain, Dijak, or War Machine.

Cobb is the other name that is interesting here, he's got more ties to other major promotions than the guys I previously predicted, as a LU performer, a guy on New Japan's radar who was in the tag league last year, and recently a recipient of a big offer from Impact. Also, while he definitely has the ability and some buzz, his age could possibly work against him. For the time being, I feel like Cobb's future may more likely be somewhere like NJPW or Impact than NXT.

Well it looks like this is the next guy they signed as WWE released a news report yesterday that he was signed. Don't know anything about him but NXT has been looking good and seems to handle these talents well. Wish I could say the same for when they all get to the main roster...
