185 | In-Depth Look at the History of NXT Call-Ups | 02/20/19

Some high-profile NXT talents made their main rosters debut this week... but why?
In what seemed more like a showcase rather than integrating these guys into the main roster, Aleister Black, Ricochet, Johnny Gargano and NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa appeared on both RAW and SmackDown Live this week, and were booked pretty strongly. But what was the purpose? What does this mean for future NXT call-ups?
And speaking of NXT call-ups, that's what the majority of this week's show is about. Vaughn Johnson (@VaughnMJohnson) and Nick Piccone (@nickpiccone) run down the history of the NXT call-ups and talk in-depth about them. Which ones hit? Which ones missed? Which ones completely failed? Which ones have been major successes? They even talk about the ones who aren't even with the company anymore.
