WWE NXT’s Trick Williams: Main Roster Debut in 2024 Draft Unlikely

The One Big Thing

Trick Williams, once speculated as a likely candidate for the 2024 WWE Draft call-up to the main roster, is now reportedly out of consideration.

Quick Facts

  • The 2024 WWE Draft is set to begin on April 26 on SmackDown and continue on April 29 on Monday Night Raw following WrestleMania 40.
  • Trick Williams, a former NXT North American Champion, has been previously discussed as a main roster addition.
  • Despite prior speculation, Fightful Select reports Williams is no longer being considered for the draft, pending any last-minute decisions.
  • Main roster officials still view Trick Williams positively, though his draft discussion is currently paused.

Why It Matters

This development underscores WWE’s evolving strategy and planning behind NXT talent promotions and how individual wrestlers are esteemed within the broader WWE narrative. With plans to feature Trick as a central figure on NXT programming post-Draft, WWE indicates its investment in nurturing talent within its development brand before considering main roster promotions.

His recent victory in a Steel Cage Match against Carmelo Hayes on April 16 highlights his rising status within NXT. Williams is now poised to challenge Ilja Dragunov for the NXT Championship at NXT Spring Breakin Night One.

Looking Forward

Although Williams is not currently slated for a main roster debut via the 2024 Draft, his trajectory within NXT and potential future on WWE’s larger stage remains a key narrative to watch.
