Since the utter reboot of NXT in 2021, a lot of things have changed in the former gold and black brand. The program has been keeping a very close eye on the development of new stars, especially their skills and character play. Also, since the arrival of Shawn Michaels on the board of NXT 2.0, the company has been sheerly focusing on young talent instead of experienced wrestlers. So, let’s take a look at the top 10 NXT wrestlers that can be future main roster stars.
The 10 Best NXT 2.0 stars that can be the future of WWE
10. Cameron Grimes
Cameron Grimes should be talked about more. He is a great superstar with a lot of talent. Grimes has the ability to portray many different characters, and he somehow resembles the brilliant selling skills of Chris Jericho. And if he develops his skills to a certain extent, he’ll surely be a great technician in any of the promotions he goes for.
9. Gigi Dolin
Gigi Dolin got a strong start to her NXT career, and since then, everything has been in her favour. He was also part of Toxic Attraction as they definitely dominated the whole women’s division in NXT. However, after the release of Mandy Rose, things started being struck for the remaining members. And on last week’s NXT 2.0, Jacy Jayne turned on Gigi Dolin. Anyways, Dolin is a great star who can have a bright future.
8. Grayson Waller
As things stand now, Grayson Waller is being seen as the future heir of Randy Orton’s notorious douchebag persona. Grayson Waller knows well how to acquire hate from the audience and he’s surely on his way to the main roster prominence. The fans started hating him the most when he attacked Johnny Gargano during his heartfelt farewell to the NXT Universe.
7. The Creed Brothers
The Creed Brothers can be a huge addition to the main roster of the promotion. It’s true that for years, WWE has been lacking in the tag division. With the Usos being the undisputed champions, several tag teams have already lost their prowess in the roster. The Creed Brothers are performing well in 2.0 already, and they will surely steal the limelight in the main roster too.
6. Joe Gacy
Since Joe Gacy made his debut in NXT 2.0 and portrayed his character, he’s been compared to Bray Wyatt (and Bray Wyatt is being compared to the Undertaker). But in this hassle, people have utterly forgotten about the in-ring ability of Joe Gacy. A gimmick change or a better work with this current character can surely make him a likely candidate for being a top star in WWE.
5. Cora Jade
Cora Jade is among the youngest superstars in the WWE during this time and she’s a great babyface. She’s super agile and it’s fair to say that she is also doing great character work. Jade is among the few young prospects that make you feel can lead the main roster. After all, she’s everyone’s favourite skater girl.
4. Nikkitta Lyons
Nikkitta Lyons got a lot of people talking about her after she made her debut in the NXT. Most of the individuals were majority talking about her gear and persona, while only a few of them had a word about her in-ring skills. Anyways, she can be a solid competitor in the female division of RAW as well as SmackDown in the future.
3. Carmelo Hayes
Carmelo Hayes is undoubtedly the real breakout star of NXT. He has everything that it takes to be successful in this promotion. From charisma to in-ring technical abilities, he’s a very bright prospect. He also won the NXT Breakout tournament in 2021 by turning down Odyssey Jones. Hayes also held the North American title, before he lost in a five-men ladder match against Wes Lee.
2. Tiffany Stratton
Tiffany Stratton has been made to dominate the ring. It’s hard to deny that she’s totally flawless when it comes to battling in the squared circle. She’s just 23 years old and she already tops the list in almost all the departments. She’s highly likely to be a future WWE Women’s Champion.
1. Bron Breakker
Bron Breakker is already the face of NXT and it’s fair to say that he has the calibre of leader on the main roster too. He comes from a wrestling background with Scott Steiner being his uncle and Rick Steiner being his father. He’s a complete powerhouse in the ring and he also has the charisma to be a babyface. Hence, he just needs a push to get on the main roster.
