Nikki Cross, EC3 & more react to making it on WWE main roster
After the McMahon family shook things up on Raw with a game-changing announcement, the pieces started to fall into place when it was confirmed that six NXT standouts would be arriving to the Raw and SmackDown LIVE brands.
Among the fresh new faces are Nikki Cross, Lacey Evans, Heavy Machinery (Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic), EC3 and the previously-announced Lars Sullivan. Of course, it didn’t take long before the promising Superstars spilled their overpouring excitement on social media.
My brother @WWEDozovic and I have been living the #STEAKSandWEIGHTS life together for 2 and half years. We formed the unit #HeavyMachinery and the goal for us was always #Raw or #SmackDown.

What a beautiful family moment to kick off #raw. You think Shane sweats a lot? Wait until you see this FREAK of nature. LARS SULLIVAN is coming very soon. I look forward to introducing you all to my brand of belligerence. :)— LarsWWE (@LarsSWWE) December 18, 2018
Each of these Superstars have helped amplify the electricity within the black-and-gold roster, leaving behind a trove of highlights in their wake. Whether it’s EC3’s unforgettable showing at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans or Nikki Cross’ eclectic brand of in-ring chaos, not to mention Heavy Machinery’s journey to a six-month undefeated streak, they – individually and collectively – are lightning in a bottle that should add volume to those “This is awesome!” chants.
