According to a new report, WWE Officials are eyeing two NXT stars for a move to the main roster, with one being described as “the total package”.
Since NXT was relaunched as NXT 2.0 in September 2021, the show has been focussed on developing new talent to get them ready for the Raw and SmackDown rosters.
Recent graduates of the developmental brand who have gone on to join the main roster include Theory, Ciampa, and Gunther. Now, according to a new report from Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the next Superstars to make the leap may already have been selected by WWE Officials.
According to Meltzer, both Sanga and Xyon Quinn could be main roster bound sooner rather than later with Quinn in particlar catching the eye of officials who believe him to be “the total package”.
“I’ll tell ya what, both of these guys [Sanga and Quinn] are being considered for the main roster right now. Yeah, they think he [Quinn] is the total package.”
Xyon Quinn is a former rugby player from Australia who has been with NXT since 2018. Following several years of competing at live events, he made his TV debut in September 2021, defeating Boa before going on an impressive undefeated streak for several months.

Sanga has also been in NXT since 2018 and was part of Indus Sher alongside Veer Mahaan. The two saw some success, but once Mahaan was called up to the main roster himself in 2021, the team was split up. More recently, he has achieved victories over Wes Lee and, interestingly, Xyon Quinn.
