According to PWInsider.com, NXT wrestlers worked more dark matches before this week’s edition of SmackDown. There were three matches this week, including:
- Shotzi Blackheart vs. Tony Storm
- Odyssey Jones vs. Robert Roode
- Karrion Kross vs. Cesaro
This is the second time that Blackheart has worked a SmackDown dark match and the third for Kross. These matches are part of an effort by WWE to find talent ready to move up to potentially move up to the main roster later this year. While it has not been confirmed, the moves are rumored to be part of the 2021 WWE Draft, which will be held in the fall.
