Triple H rumored to be wanting NXT Superstar on main roster

WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H is rumored to want to have an NXT Superstar on the main roster in the very near future.

According to a recent report/rumor from Xero News, The Game wants to bring Ilja Dragunov up to RAW or SmackDown.

“There has been talk of bringing Ilja Dragunov up to the main roster in the not-so-distant future” the site claimed on Twitter.

“No set date on it, HHH is a huge fan and believes Dragunov will do very well on the main roster. There had been talk of putting Ilja on SmackDown” Xero concluded.

Is Triple H bringing more stars up from NXT?

It’s worth noting that this rumor from Xero News is just that, a rumor, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

Dragunov has been a big name on the European independents and NXT UK for the past couple of years, and it’s been noted before that HHH is a fan of his.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to see Ilja make his way up to the blue brand in the near future, as there isn’t a huge amount for him to do in NXT right now.
