Backstage News On NXT Star Debuting On WWE Main Roster

– As noted, Elias Samson appears to be leaving NXT for the main roster after his “Loser Leaves NXT” match to Kassius Ohno at last week’s NXT tapings.

That match will air on next week’s episode of NXT.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Samson was originally set to move to the main roster several months ago, but it was delayed after he suffered a broken ankle in June of last year.

It was noted that Samson has competed since the television tapings, working last Friday’s NXT live event in Miami under a mask as El Vagabondo.
