Who needs the usual blue brand roster when you have so many NXT stars available to put on a show?
Indeed, with so many wrestlers stuck in Saudi Arabia dealing with travel issues, WWE called on multiple NXT wrestlers to fill in on Friday Night SmackDown this week. That included Shayna Baszler attacking Bayley and then Matt Riddle and Keith Lee showing up to put the boots to Sami Zayn for popping off at the mouth.
Look at ‘em go!

It was a fun little segment that could be a throwaway to fill time or could be used to help set up whatever involvement NXT will have at Survivor Series this year.
So it’s all working out in the end anyway!
