WWE Unveils List Of Top NXT Prospects

WWE posted a new article on dot com intended to introduce readers to the top NXT prospects. The article includes a list of the following workers:

  • Kassius Ohno (formerly known as Chris Hero)
  • Leo Kruger (on the road with Smackdown)
  • Bo Dallas (on the road with Smackdown)
  • Paige
  • Richie Steamboat
  • Adrian Neville (formerly known as PAC)
  • Anya
  • Bray Wyatt (formerly known as Husky Harris), Luke Harper & Erick Rowan

NXT is the name of WWE's official developmental territory based in Tampa, Florida. You can read the full article at this link.

  • Ricky

    I see the Wyatt stable fitting in someplace and nice they dropped the Husky Harris name. I could see Richie Steamboat feuding with Barrett since WWE teased at a feud with Ricky and Wade. Ohno would make a great heel and fued with guys like Daniel Bryan.

  • James Tee

    Have to be honest and say I’m not really a fan of Bo Dallas; from what I’ve seen, good in the ring but can’t see any real personality. Not really seen much of Anya, but everyone else on that list has real potential, especially Bray Wyatt. The evangelical preacher gimmick is arguably one of the best since the end of the attitude era, and has real potential to make him one of the biggest heels in all of professional wrestling

      So, a tired gimmick that’s been done a half dozen times over is one of the best in the last decade? I find that very hard to believe, especially considering how terrible he was as Husky Harris. Either he has really stepped his game up, or you’re exaggerating. I find the latter the more likely of the two.

      • Why bother commenting on it if you have no clue what you’re talking about. Climb out from under the rock you’re under and go look him up on YouTube. Its not that hard. Also this gimmick hasnt ”been done a half a dozen times”. Way to be a jerk for no reason.

    • Chris

      It’s a “reimagining” of Waylon Mercy. Still not sure how you get him over with the new name (see Tensai…).

      • BigMike7302

        Dan SPivey I mean Waylon Mercy was a persona made from the movie Cape Fear but this was once Dan got slow and was not in shape like when he was in the Skyscrapers

  • Simon Veitch

    I’m a little let down that there is no Emma on this list, guess she still has to prove herself to officials. But back home she was a fantastic worker who really put in everything she had and even travelled over to Canada to train with Lance Storm. Would be great to see her make more of an impact.

  • The Breaker

    Really interested to see how they’ll fit Bray Wyatt and his “family” in on the big roster. His character is unlike anything else I’ve seen.

    • Chris

      Then you were born in the mid 90’s or later. It’s Waylon Mercy with a stable.

  • Zman

    No jdl give him a watch .. You won’t regret it ..he’s good .. He’s not like husky Harris at all… He’s got great mic skills

  • Jimmy

    All you people commenting act like mic skills are everything but lets face it, you could be one of the best on the mic and a good wrestler but if you don’t fit ‘the look’ that VInce wants then you’ll be nothing more then an upper mid card talent or even a short main event reign at most.

    • Chris

      Ummm, so how does that fit Punk?
