Default Who will NXT sign in 2018?

Now that AOP, Ember Moon, Sanity (minus Nikki), Drew McIntyre, and Almas w/ Vega all were called up to the main roster; who will NXT sign in 2018 from outside the WWE? Of course they did already replenish with War Raiders taking AOP spot, Ricochet and EC3 coming in also. But as the months move on into later this year, who do you guys think NXT will bring in? I have to admit that I don't know many outside talents other than some guys from ROH (Briscoes, Daniels, Lethal), NJPW (Omega, Bucks, Scurl, Naito, Ibushi, Okada), and Lucha Underground (Matanza,PJ Black, Pentagon, Muertes) so I'm interested in learning about outside talent as many will eventually come through NXT.

Thoughts?...

All I'm hoping for is that they bring Marty Scurll, such a great talent with a lot of charisma he is just entertaining to watch.

As well as Kenny Omega, no need for an explanation here but I hope IF they bring him in that they would push him to the main roster immediately instead of NXT.

Jay Lethal is also needed.

I hope they bring in Ava Storie since she is not in impact wrestling anymore. If Allie leaves Ditto. Also Veda Scott- I'm actually surprised they haven't brought her in. I'm a big fan of all 3 and would love to see them in the women's division in NXT.

This is the big one. And you're right, he would be way above the NXT level and would go directly to the main roster like Styles. He's as big a star now as AJ Styles was, probably even bigger in Japan, and could easily adapt his style to the WWE in the same way AJ did. As successful as AJ's run has been in the WWE, he's a multi-time world champion and the face of the blue brand, Omega could be even bigger. I would aruge that at this moment in time, Omega is the hottest wrestler in any promotion. His matches with Okada last year raised his stock massively, and his reunion with Kota Ibushi has resulted in Japanese crowds reacting in ways I've literally never seen before. Omega will also be around 5 years younger than Styles when he came in, so there's a lot more longevity. Whether you like it or not, Omega is the epitome of the modern wrestler and if I was WWE I'd be looking to strap the rocket to him on the main roster. Stone Cold Steve Austin has said the same thing as well. He really could do massive business for them if marketed properly. He has all the tools to be a top star in the modern era.

That being said, Omega has a certin feeling of loyalty (and rightly so) to New Japan. NJPW is trying to expand globally, and as a billingual star that's super over with western audiences Kenny Omega is a huge part of that. New Japan is also the company that gave him his big break, and he understandably feels obligated to give back to the company now that he's in a position to do so. Plus, there's the dangling carrot of the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. The main differene between Styles and OMega is that Styles has held the IWGP Title (twice), I think before he's done in Japan Omega wants to hold it. The company probably also knows this. Depending on how big a mark Kenny is, that could be possible incentive to stay.

As far as NXT specifically, I remember reading somewhere that WWE was reportedly high on Dalton Castle. That would make sense since he's a pretty unique and interesting character, one of the few indy guys with an over-the-top gimmick that works. I actually think he's a poor choice to be ROH Champion right now, because he's still a bit rough around the edges, but he's perfect for NXT because he has a lot of room to grow and learn. Marty Scurll is another obvious chocie from ROH to step in to NXT. His gimmick is crazy over and would probably translate well to NXT. Hopefully if he wrestles Dalton in NXT it's better than their ROH Title match because holy fuck that was bad.

There's also Will Ospreay. He's the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion right now, and part of me sees him getting a run with that belt because down the line he's a guy that could step up to the heavyweight division. He's not Hiromu and Kushida who are probably too short to ever really step up and will be perennial Jr. Heavyweight wrestlers. Ospreay's a high flier (one of the best), but he has the height. He's over 6 feet and if he fills out more he could be a solid heavyweight in Japan. But if I'm WWE I'd be trying to scoop him for NXT instead. Ricochet came to NXT, Ospreay could easily as well.

That is what I'm afraid of, Kenny being too loyal to NJPW that he misses the opportunity to join the WWE, and I believe that he stated before that he will not go there anyway.

As far as I can remember, he was given an offer by WWE and he turned it down on the spot, which was a good move for him in my opinion and he became even a bigger star now, but he might regret turning that offer down if WWE is stupid enough to not keep trying to sign him in.

When the time comes and we see Omega and Ospreay in WWE, I just hope they make them even bigger stars than they already are now.

Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks.

Have Kenny Omega be a suprise entrance in the Money In the Bank Ladder match, which he wins. He later cashes in on AJ Styles, and becomes WWE Champion.

Young Bucks debuts RAW Post Summerslam, and first thing they do is attack Newly crowd RAW tag champions McIntyre and Ziggler, they have a long feud involving Hardy/Wyatt. Young Bucks wins the RAW Tag titles at TLC.

This is fantasy booking, not logical at all.
