Four NXT Wrestlers Reportedly Scheduled to be at Smackdown This Week.


-- PWInsider.com reports that four NXT stars are scheduled to be at this Friday's WWE Smackdown. The names reported are Dakota Kai, Io Shirai, LA Knight and Roderick Strong. Kai worked dark matches prior to airings of Raw and Smackdown in November of 2021 but has since returned to NXT. Shirai meanwhile hasn't been seen on the main roster in three years when she last appeared at the Royal Rumble in 2019. Strong and Knight have been at the last few TV events. There's been no confirmation on whether any of these wrestlers will appear on Smackdown or if they are to be used off camera.
