Raw Star Backstage At Recent NXT Taping, More On NXT Stars To Main Roster

We're going to see some movement between WWE brands pretty soon, and lots of people are popping up backstage and in dark matches in anticipation.

Fightful Select reported the following recently:

Chris Jericho Isn't Surprised Roman Reigns Is 'Killing It,' Calls Him 'A Great Guy'

We've heard a lot about the likes of Bronson Reed, Karrion Kross and Scarlett all being at WWE Raw and Smackdown events of late, but there have actually been some main roster names at backstage recently. Fightful was told that MVP was backstage at this past week's episode of NXT, and that it isn't uncommon to see Damian Priest visiting backstage as well. We aren't sure if there was a specific reason for MVP being there or if he was just visiting.

In addition, Scarlett and Shotzi Blackheart were both backstage at Smackdown last Friday.

Fightful has heard that WWE is trying a variety of things in these dark matches to see how they relate to on-screen for the main roster as well.
