– WWE’s self-proclaimed “New Era” may actually look closer to past eras.
With the brand extension fast approaching, decisions on who will be on Raw and who will be on SmackDown need to be made soon. While it has been expected that a number of wrestlers from NXT would be promoted to the main roster, organization officials may be having second thoughts on this.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter said Friday, “WWE just realized they have to fill two rosters, calling lots of 40+ year old guys to return for the new era.”

It has been rumored in recent days that Vince McMahon would prefer to bring back talents WWE fans are already familiar with to help bolster the roster depth with the impending brand extension. Triple H would likely be in favor of this too so NXT isn’t gutted of its premiere stars.
