NXT Has Made a Huge Impact in WWE


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.

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.

WWE NXT 4-10-13: William Regal Gets Retribution

On this week’s edition of NXT, Tom Phillips and the Assistant To the Raw Managing Supervisor (Vickie Guerrero) Brad Maddox were on commentary and Kendall Skye handled ring announcing duties. The show began with a 6-Man Tag Team Match between the team of Percy Watson, Axl Keegan, and Scott Dawson against The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, & Roman Reigns). I should also point out that both Axl Keegan and Scott Dawson turned face on this edition of NXT. As for the match, The Shield defeated the their opponents, thus remaining undefeated as a trio. After the match, The Shield gave Scott Dawson their patented Triple Powerbomb. Then, Corey Graves appeared on the titantron and issued a challenge to any one of the members of The Shield next week on NXT. Seth Rollins stepped up to the plate and told his cohorts that they could have the night off next week. NXT Commissioner and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes confirmed that the match would be a main event Lumberjack Match next week. While I am not a fan of either Graves nor Rollins, I’m gonna be rooting against Rollins. The second match of the night was between The Funkadactyls …

WWE NXT 3-27-13: Road to WrestleMania 29

This was a special edition of NXT because the theme was “Road to WrestleMania 29”. WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel was the ring announcer for the night and the commentary team for the night was Tom Phillips, William Regal, and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross. We also heard from some of WWE’s biggest names of today including The Shield, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio, and John Cena; they all discussed their respective upcoming matches for WrestleMania 29. The first match was actually for the WWE Divas Championship when champion Kaitlyn defended against challenger Natalya. While I am a fan of both of these women, I was rooting for Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn ended up getting the victory and after the match, both women shook hands, embraced, and held the championship high together in true class. I should also point out that based on what the commentators were saying throughout the match, it sounds like WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn will as least be appearing at WrestleMania 29. The next match was David vs. Goliath when Brodus Clay and El Local went one-on-one; Brodus Clay was victorious. At one point during the show, Kassius Ohno came out of nowhere and attacked …
