WWE officials are reportedly very high on Roderick Strong according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer. Strong made his NXT debut on this week’s episode of NXT.
Strong's good reputation stems from the fact he is seen as one of the best wrestlers in the business which is going down very well with management backstage in the company.
Strong has had a stellar career working for ROH where he won the ROH World Championship, ROH TV Title (twice), and World Tag Team Championship over the course of his 13 year career there.
He is currently teaming with Austin Aries in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
