NXT Has Made a Huge Impact in WWE

NXT_Wrestling

Whether it was the original version of NXT where an NXT Rookie was paired with a WWE Pro or NXT the current developmental system of WWE, many of today’s WWE Superstars on the main roster have come out of NXT. Some of these superstars have made it to the top, some have made a huge impact and some still have yet to make their presence felt. I am very confident that there will be many more superstars to come out of NXT in the near future.

 

NXT Alumni

 

The following superstars listed below have managed to land spots on the main roster. Some have gone on to become top stars, some are still working their way to the top and some even still spend part of their time down at NXT.

Is JoJo the next Kelly Kelly?

JoJo and Kelly Kelly

WWE’s newest diva and star of its reality show Total Divas, JoJo, is currently the youngest diva on the roster at just 19-years-old. Former WWE Diva Kelly Kelly was at one time the youngest diva on the roster at 19-years-old and she eventually went on to become WWE Divas Champion and one of the greatest divas of all time; she had a very successful WWE career. While JoJo still has a ways away to measure up to the amount of success Kelly had, I think it would definitely be something if JoJo was able to go from the youngest diva on the roster to one of the all-time greats, like Kelly did. I think everybody should keep on out for this up-and-coming diva because the WWE Universe may very well be looking at the future of the divas division.

WWE Total Divas 9-1-13: Relationship Issues

On this edition of Total Divas, relationships were put to the test. First, fresh off a break-up from her previous boyfriend, Jo-Jo Offerman developed a crush on Paul Llyod, Jr. a.k.a fellow WWE Superstar Justin Gabriel. After they eventually started talking and getting to know one another, her fellow WWE Divas warned Jo-Jo about the age gap between her and Justin and that it could spell potential disaster. Jo-Jo is 19-years-old and she and Justin are I think at least a decade apart in their age gap. Unfortunately, the worst fear came true because while Jo-Jo and fellow newbie WWE Diva Eva Marie were walking around the lobby of their Las Vegas hotel, they saw Justin with another woman and eventually took off in a taxi cab with that woman. After talking with one another about the issues, they both agreed to break up with another. Second, Ariane Andrew a.k.a. WWE Diva Cameron Lynn and her boyfriend Vincent had a falling-out after his drunken behavior embarressed her in front of her fellow WWE Superstars. Their issue was left unresolved; however, there might be answers on the next episode based on what I saw in the preview. Lastly, Nattie Neidhart was …

First off, it was revealed that some of the divas are in respective relationships with their fellow WWE Superstars; Nikki is dating WWE Champion John Cena, Brie is dating Daniel Bryan, Naomi is engaged to Jimmy of The Usos (Jimmy & Jey), and Jo-Jo is dating Justin Gabriel of International Airstrike (Justin Gabriel & Tyson Kidd).

WWE Raw 7-1-13: The Two World Champions Collide

 

Every Money In the Bank Competitor, Except One, States His Case

With the WWE Championship Contract Money In the Bank Briefcase hanging above the ring and a ladder inside the ring, Daniel Bryan came out to state his case on why he would win the WWE Championship Contract Money In the Bank Ladder Match at the upcoming WWE event, Money In the Bank. Then, all the rest of the competitors for this match came out, which consists of Sheamus O’Shaunessy, Randy Orton, Kane, Christian, and CM Punk. The only one who was conspicuous by his absence was Rob Van Dam. After all the rest of the men stated their cases, chaos followed when Orton struck Kane with his signature maneuver “The RKO”.

Kane Gets Some Unwanted Assistance

Backstage, Daniel Bryan informed his former Team Hell No tag team partner Kane that Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero made a match between Kane and Randy Orton with Daniel Bryan as the special guest referee. I am a fan of both Kane and Orton and was not sure who to root for in this one. As for the match, at one point, Orton kind of shoved Bryan, leading to Bryan disqualifying Orton …

WWE Main Event 6-26-13: The Shield’s New Competition

The Shield Are Put On Notice

Christian went one-on-one with United States Champion and Shield leader Dean Ambrose in a non-title match. Christian was out for retribution after being attacked by The Shield (Dean Ambrose & WWE Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) on Smackdown from the previous Friday. In the end, Christian got the win via disqualification after the other two Shield members came out and attacked Christian. The Shield continued their attack on Christian, until the the #1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship and Reigns’ second cousins The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) came out to even the odds. In the end, Christian and The Usos drove The Shield away from the ring. This all lead to a Six-Man Tag Team Match for that week’s upcoming Smackdown.

Tons of Funk Get A Grand Introduction, Only to Be Defeated

Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai) got introduced in grand fashion when their corner women The Funkadactyls (Naomi & Cameron Lynn), along with WWE’s newest diva Jo-Jo Offerman, performed Tons of Funk’s & The Funkadactyls’ theme music “Somebody Call My Momma”. Personally, I thought their singing was as beautiful as they are. All three of these …
