According to the Wrestling Observer Joe is likely to move up to the main roster some time after WrestleMania 32 with an appearance on the post 'Mania Monday Night Raw rumored. 

These plans are all subject to change with the veteran star set to take on Finn Balor for the NXT Championship at the next TakeOver event. 

If Joe beats 'the demon' then it is likely his time in developmental will increase in order to build his character and give him one last major push before making it to either Raw or Smackdown

With the fans of NXT also having a major say on who goes up or down his character may need to be developed ever slightly so as to avoid fan negativity. 

Ready, Set, JOE?

Is the man from California ready for the move up or should be continue his trade and help the other stars develop at NXT?

Well on this week's episode of NXT, the announcers spoke forthright about Joe moving up to the main roster something that is rarely heard of as it would rightfully draw mass rumor and opinion.

With former TNA compadre AJ Styles already featuring on the main roster programming it could be that the two major stars could come face to face again some time after WrestleMania.
