NXT’s Next Breakout Stars in 2017?: CZW

Published

on

Combat Zone Wrestling or CZW is one of the most well known American independent wrestling companies today where it’s well known for its hard-hitting, brawling, and hardcore style of wrestling.

For the past few years, NXT has picked up some wrestlers who are well known for their time in CZW such as Dean Ambrose, Oney Lorcan, and etc. It’s only a matter of time when WWE is planning to sign more talent from CZW if they want more unique style of wrestlers in their company.

This list won’t contain wrestlers that competed in NXT or the developmental territory of WWE in the past so please keep that in mind.

Here’s the list I have about one year ago for NXT’s Next Breakout Stars in 2016?:

CZW:

5. Mike Bailey

4. AR Fox

3. OI4K

2. Pepper Parks & Cherry Bomb

1. David Starr

Now, it’s time to see which five wrestlers from CZW I think NXT will pick up or I want NXT to pick up in 2017.


Honorable Mentions: Dave Crist, Zachary Wentz, Tim Donst, Rickey Shane Page, BLK Jeez, Joey Janela


5. Brittany Blake

From Blackwood, New Jersey, Brittany Blake is a woman on the rise in CZW who is known for her high-flying abilities that can take on the men.

With three years of wrestling experience, this woman is here to show the world no matter whether or not you’re a man or a woman, she will try to take you down with her high-flying abilities. With her unique look and great high-flying ability, she would be an interesting addition to the NXT women’s division.

Now, I don’t know if NXT are interested in her or not, but if NXT is looking for more women’s wrestlers that have potential, Brittany Blake would be a good candidate for the NXT women’s division. Even though she lacked character and charisma, her getting signed could benefit her as she can go to the Performance Center to get a character and charisma there. If she gets signed by NXT, she would take risks to get to the top of the NXT women’s division.


4. Matt Tremont

From Atlantic City, New Jersey, Matt Tremont is one of the most well known wrestlers in CZW who is well known for his brawling and hardcore style in the ring.

With nine years of wrestling experience, this bulldozer is here to bulldoze his way up to the top with his unique look, good character, great charisma, and great in-ring ability, he would be an interesting addition to NXT.

I don’t know if NXT is interested in him or not, but if NXT is looking for wrestlers that could work well in singles competition, he could work out well in NXT especially in the NXT Championship picture going against a guy like Samoa Joe.


3. Nation of Intoxication

Danny Havoc, Devon Moore, and Lucky 13, Nation of Intoxication are the one of the most well known factions in CZW who are known for their extreme hardcore style and their cocky attitudes in the ring.

With four years of experience as a tag team/stable, these three together have been 2x CZW Tag Team Champions with their great chemistry, their good characters, solid charisma, and they’re great in-ring wrestlers.

I don’t know if NXT is interested in them or not, but if NXT wants more established tag teams/stables while they build their own, then Nation of Intoxication should be a tag team/stable that NXT should look into if they want more tag teams/stables in their tag team division. Plus, they’re hardcore.


2. MASADA

From Waco, Texas, MASADA is one of the best talents in CZW at the moment who is well known for his hardcore and brawling style in the ring.

With fourteen years of wrestling experience, this ultraviolent beast can destroyed anything in his path with his good look, good character, solid charisma, and great in-ring ability, he would be an interesting addition to NXT.

I don’t know if NXT is interested in him or not, but if NXT is looking for wrestlers that could work well in singles competition, he could work out well in NXT similar to Matt Tremont. However, the only difference is that he is in mid-thirties. Despite that, NXT still signed talents that are at that age or even older so it’s all depends on if NXT is interested in signing this ultraviolent beast.


1. Jonathan Gresham

From Atlanta, Georgia, Jonathan Gresham is one of the rising stars in CZW who is well known for his technical wrestling in the ring.

With eleven years of wrestling experience, this rocksteady octopus is a rising talent that is only going to get better from here. With his unique look and excellent in-ring ability, he would be great in NXT whether it’s in singles competition or tag team competition.

I don’t know if NXT is interested in him or not, but if NXT is looking for wrestlers who are well experienced, Jonathan Gresham is the man to look for. Even though he lacked character and charisma, him getting signed could benefit him as he can go to the Performance Center to get a character and charisma there. If he gets signed by NXT, this rockystead octopus would be an interesting fit to NXT.


That is my top five wrestlers from CZW who I think/want to be in NXT in 2017. Which wrestlers from CZW would you like to see in NXT in 2017? Let me know in the comment section below.
