WWE’s Road to WrestleMania XL is reaching its climax with just a week remaining, sparking fan excitement about the post-WrestleMania direction. Ilja Dragunov, the current NXT Champion since his victory over Carmelo Hayes at No Mercy in September 2023, is set to defend his title against Tony D’Angelo at NXT Stand And Deliver 2024 during WrestleMania XL weekend. Despite his success, rumors suggest that Dragunov may not immediately transition to the main roster post-WrestleMania, but plans are in place for a future move once he drops the title.

Reports from Fightful indicate that WWE officials are eyeing a significant push for Dragunov akin to his rival Gunther. Speculation swirls that the company views Dragunov, aged 30, similarly to the current Intercontinental Champion, hinting at a strong push upon his main roster debut.

Within NXT, Dragunov garners immense praise for his in-ring prowess and ability to boost his opponents effortlessly. Producers laud his intuitive understanding of wrestling, highlighting his positive impact both professionally and personally among his peers.

Despite initial concerns about Dragunov’s potential reluctance for a main roster call-up due to family commitments, sources indicate WWE’s cooperation to accommodate his schedule effectively. As the anticipation builds for WWE NXT Stand & Deliver 2024, the event promises an exciting card featuring Dragunov defending his NXT Championship against Tony D’Angelo, along with other thrilling matchups. The event is set to air live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA, offering fans a memorable experience during WrestleMania XL weekend.
