Bálor, Bayley and American Alpha do their best Shinsuke Nakamura impression at last NXT Live Event before WWE Draft
Though the news that six NXT Superstars will be selected in tomorrow’s WWE Draft has changed everything, some of NXT’s brightest stars can still manage to smile in the face of the unknown that lies ahead.
At Saturday’s NXT Live Event in Louisville, Ky., Finn Bálor, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bayley and American Alpha joined forces for a 10-Superstar Mixed Tag Team Match. After the huge battle, the six Superstars gathered in the middle of the ring for a celebratory “too sweet,” then ran to the ropes to unleash their own version of The King of Strong Style’s trademark pose.
After the celebration, Bálor grabbed the microphone and asked the NXT Universe in attendance if a window or door was open, because he felt a “Draft.” The quip drew a big reaction from the crowd, who were excited at the prospect of seeing their favorite NXT stars on WWE’s biggest stages.
While the future is unknown right now for Bálor, Nakamura, Bayley, Jason Jordan and Chad Gable and the rest of NXT’s roster, the prospect of among the six Superstars called up doesn’t seem to be weighing them down. Will any of them be among those chosen to join Raw and SmackDown’s roster? Find out during the WWE Draft, tomorrow on the debut episode of SmackDown Live, at 8/7 C on USA Network!
