NXT Champions are Future Breakout Stars


Ilja Dragunov and Roxanne Perez, both NXT Champions, made their WWE Raw debut by defeating their opponents.  Both are in a similar path as Kevin Owens (then-NXT Champion) in 2015 when he debuted Monday Night Raw and challenged then WWE United States Champion, John Cena.  Owens would eventually lose the title to Finn Balor and moved on the the WWE main roster.  

Dragounov defeated Shinsuke Nakamura and Perez defeated Indi Hartwell.  Expect both make their presence by July or before Summerslam 2024 to be permanently in the WWE main roster.
