In a post on the message boards for The Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer wrote about the frustration of the main roster talent in the WWE not being able to work better matches on RAW, SmackDown and PPV as the NXT workers get to do on the NXT Takeover specials. On the other hand, the NXT talents are frustrated they are not able to move up to the main roster. However, Meltzer believes they will become even more frustrated when they move up to the main roster and are not able to work the type of matches they are used to on NXT.
Meltzer wrote the following:
“So story is accurate but it’s inherent. It was the same thing in the OVW days, well not exactly the same, but similar. I get DMs from people on the main roster always after those specials. It’s a common frustration. The top NXT performers are frustrated they aren’t on the main roster making money. Then they will get more frustrated when they realize their dream. WWE guys are frustrated they aren’t having the matches guys in NXT are when they know if they can perform before 400 fans in longer matches they can tear the house down.”
