One of the added benefits of NXT doing a national tour is that it might enable the company to increase the amount of money that is being paid to the performers. That, of course, depends heavily on whether or not they can turn a profit from the live events. Based on the results that we have seen during the testing period thus far, it looks likely to happen. A champion like Sasha Banks would more than likely have a higher salary than others.

WWE issued a poll to their fans to see which NXT diva should be promoted to the main roster now that AJ Lee has decided to retire as an in ring performer. Sasha Banks, Bayley, Alexa Bliss, Becky Lynch and Carmella received a good amount of votes, but the majority of the audience opted to go with Charlotte, who has been waiting in line for quite some time now. The belief is that she will be promoted to the main roster before the year ends.

To give you a sign of how respected the divas in NXT are, fans refused to mock them during the recent live event in San Jose. Charlotte had some of her hair extension fall out during a match with Sasha Banks. The two of them showed a lot of professionalism by continuing to work through the match and not be distracted. Since the fans appreciated their work, there were absolutely no chants to mock the second generation star.

If there is one good thing about AJ Lee retiring from WWE, it's that her departure opens up the door for another female performer. A roster spot and salary slot have been open. A diva on the main roster right now has a chance at filling that void, but that is highly unlikely. More than likely, the company is going to look at the developmental divas in NXT. Charlotte is first in line, but the company is also high on Sasha Banks and Bayley.

For the longest time now, Charlotte has been rumored to be headed for the main roster in WWE. Over the past weekend, Vince McMahon finally got to see her working a match against Sasha Banks, and he was beyond pleased. In fact, he was impressed enough to where many people backstage feel that he is going to speed up her promotion. We should see the NXT diva on Monday Night Raw before the end of the year.
