NXT Star Admits They Need Another Year In NXT

Tiffany Stratton in NXT Women's Championship tournament

While Tiffany Stratton might have a bright future ahead of her, the NXT star has admitted she wants another year on the developmental brand.

Stratton signed a developmental deal with the company in August 2021 and made her TV debut on the November 16th edition of 205 Live, defeating Amari Miller. That December, she joined NXT and has been working her way up the ranks ever since.

Ahead of her Women’s Championship match at Spring Breakin’ in April, Stratton told Busted Open Radio that she wasn’t quite ready for the main roster yet, saying she still lacked in the areas of selling and psychology.

“I think I have every single component that it takes to become a superstar. I think in the ring, I lack with my selling and my psychology. I think that’s where I need to improve, and quickly.”

Now, she has gone a step further, saying she wants to remain in NXT for at least another year.

Tiffany Stratton explains why she wants to stay in NXT for longer

During a new interview with Sam Roberts on his NotSam Wrestling podcast, the star discussed her hesitance at graduating from the developmental brand.

She explained that she wants to make sure she won’t be “pushed to the side” when she does get the call.

“I want to, when I get called up, I want to be a threat. I want to be someone that is like, ‘Oh crap, Tiffany is here, she is ready.’

“I don’t want to be called up and be pushed to the side for a little bit. I want to be called up and be a threat to everyone.”

She went on to say that she wants to make a name for herself and “hold some gold” before she makes the jump.

“If I have another year in NXT and make a name for myself and hold some gold, maybe, I feel like I can be at that level.”

Stratton might be able to capture gold sooner rather than later as she is currently part of a tournament to determine the next Women’s Champion. She has already made it to the second round after defeating Gigi Dolin.
