During the tail end of 2012, we saw many wrestlers from NXT make their debut on the main roster of WWE. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns) have been making an impact on the roster since Survivor Series, and Big E Langston (the current NXT Champion) has been inserted into top feuds as the muscle behind Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee.
Speaking of Big E Langston, I will not include him in this list even though he hasn't competed on Raw or Smackdown yet. Chances are, he will make his in-ring debut before The Royal Rumble.
With Royal Rumble 2013 right around the corner, there is no question that WWE will continue this influx of fresh, new faces to Raw and Smackdown.
In this slideshow, I will give you five NXT Superstars that could debut at the Royal Rumble.
This is in no way a guarantee that all or any of these superstars will make their debut. However, a high-profile match like that Royal Rumble is always a good launching point for a new superstar on the main roster.
