NXT LIVE ON THE NETWORK, MORE DEVELOPMENTAL DIVAS COMING, KHARIS THE MUMMY AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2014-01-25 10:00:00

With former NXT star Emma now a part of the WWE scene what are the chances of other female NXT stars coming over as well? Stars such as Paige, Bailey and Sasha Banks. What is the plan for Emma?

There is always a chance they are going to come to the main roster. WWE wouldn't have them signed to developmental if there wasn't a chance!

There was a meeting scheduled involving WWE talent and Vince McMahon. One of the subjects reportedly scheduled for discussion was the possibility of WWE wrestlers, past and present, possibly receiving residuals from matches seen the WWE Network. It was eventually cancelled. Has another meeting been scheduled? Was the subject of residuals involving current and former WWE stars, men and women, one of the subjects to be brought up during the meeting?

As of this writing they have yet to reschedule that meeting.

Any idea who might be the next former female wrestling star inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame?

Given this year is the 30th anniversary of the first Wrestlemania, I'd guess Cyndi Lauper, if you consider her a former female star. If not, Lita seems to be the most likely.

When NXT goes live on the WWE Network, is that permanent?

Not as of this writing. Thus far, it's been promoted as a NXT live special, not the series going live on a permanent basis.

During you interview with Jim Cornette, you mentioned Kharis the Mummy. What was that?

Kharis the Mummy was a Mummy character Smoky Mountain Wrestling had for a very brief time. Their financial backer Rick Rubin wanted a Mummy and well, he got one!
