Triple H announced a surprising batch of NXT call ups at the top of Raw this evening.
The WWE exec kicked off the show talking about a variety topics in regard to the road to WrestleMania. He then announced Ricochet, Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa would debut on Raw later in the show.
Video packages were played to hype each competitor.
The footage WWE shared on social media was captioned “Triple H introduces WWE’s newest Superstars” and Michael Cole welcomed them to WWE, so it sounds like a permanent call up. No word on what this will mean for Ciampa’s current NXT Championship run.
NXT SPOILER WARNING:
Gargano lost his NXT North American Championship to Velveteen Dream at the last NXT taping, so that will soon be covered on their program.
