Triple H announces the surprise Raw debuts of four NXT wrestlers

So are these official call-ups or just a special one time showcase?

This week’s episode of Raw kicked off with Triple H cutting a promo. We’ve been down this road before, but after Triple H recapped a few WWE news items he directed his speech towards NXT.

Specifically, Triple H announced that tonight (Feb. 18) on Raw four separate NXT mainstays would make their debuts on the main roster.

Triple H’s bit of breaking news piggybacks off a report from earlier in the day that tabbed Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Ricochet, and Aleister Black as all being backstage at Raw tonight.

Was this correct way to debut some of the biggest stars currently in NXT? Would you have preferred WWE surprising fans a little more here?
