WWE recently posted a backstage look at NXT’s top stars from the night of The Royal Rumble. Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano and Pete Dunne all appeared in The Men’s Royal Rumble Match on January 27.
The black and gold brand was well represented during the Rumble, as all three men impressed during their time in the match.
Black, Gargano and Dunne each got a great reaction when they entered the match and that reaction carried over through the entire time they worked in the ring. It’s not often that NXT’s best and brightest lock up with WWE’s main roster stars, so this was a great opportunity for fans to truly see something different.
Many of those fans believe that this trio in particular are indeed the future of Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live. Aleister Black specifically has the look and the charisma to truly become a breakout star on the main roster, though the same can be said of Gargano and Dunne as well.
Gargano is the new NXT North American champion and Dunne is still in the midst of his record-breaking 621 day plus reign as NXT UK champion. Black however is currently without a title, which means he may indeed debut on the main roster before his fellow NXT main event stars.
