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.

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.
