Adding Young creates a lot of clarity for NXT. He already has a built-in story with Samoa Joe, a new NXT champion after violence Finn Balor during a residence show:
Balor will fundamentally get a shot to win behind his title, and once his argument with Joe is over for good, NXT competence already have designed on Young being a subsequent challenger for a belt.
Or NXT‘s artistic group competence use Young likewise to how it did Aries, who kick Baron Corbin during TakeOver: Dallas, with Corbin clearly carrying done a burst to a WWE register on a full-time basis. Part of what creates NXT so successful is a ability to emanate constrained storylines and interesting matches divided from a categorical draws—something with that WWE has struggled in new years.
Young is an immensely gifted workman in a ring and some-more than charismatic on a mic. Whatever WWE has in mind for him during Full Sail University, his participation creates a product stronger.
