NXT’s Next Breakout Stars in 2017?: ROH

Published

on

ROH is one of the most well known wrestling companies in the United States today where the company is well known for its great wrestlers for the past decade plus. Some of the best wrestlers that WWE has today has come from ROH and they still have some of the best wrestlers in the world today.

For about half a decade, NXT has picked up some wrestlers who are well known for their time in ROH such as Seth Rollins, Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Cedric Alexander, Roderick Strong, and etc. It’s only a matter of time when WWE is planning to sign more talent from ROH if they want to continue their tour of branding with recognizable stars.

This list won’t contain wrestlers that competed in NXT or the developmental territory of WWE in the past such as Colt Cabana, Matt Sydal, etc. so please keep that in mind.

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

ROH:

5. Donovan Dijak

4. Moose

3. The Briscoes

2. Dalton Castle

1. Adam Cole

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


Honorable Mentions: The Young Bucks, Adam Page, Motor City Machine Guns, Kyle O’Reilly, War Machine, All Night Express, Lio Rush, Matt Taven


5. Donovan Dijak

From Worcester, Massachusetts, Donovan Dijak is a rising star in ROH who is well known for his athletic ability for a man his size.

With three years of wrestling experience, this goliath of a man is here to prove that he should not be messed with up in any way possible. Even though he lacks character and charisma, he has a great look and pretty agile for a man his size.

With him being nearly seven foot tall, WWE would like someone a man of his size to be a part of their roster. Despite lacking character and charisma, him getting signed could benefit him a lot as he could go to the Performance Center and developed a character there. It’s only a matter of time before NXT signs this giant as he would do well in the NXT Championship picture.


4. Dalton Castle

From Albany, New York, Dalton Castle is another rising star in ROH as of late who is well known for his unique character and his fantastic charisma.

With eight years of wrestling experience, this party peacock is here to have fun, but also to be serious as well as he can take on anyone in the ring. With his unique look, great character, excellent charisma, and great in-ring ability, he would do well in the NXT Championship picture where people can get behind him.

Sometime last year, Dalton Castle said that he has no interest in joining WWE as he’s very content with his time in ROH so I don’t think we’ll be seeing Dalton Castle in NXT anytime soon. However, he would make a very unique and interesting addition to the NXT roster. Ca-caw!


3. The Briscoes

Jay and Mark Briscoe, The Briscoes are one of the best tag teams that ROH has today who have been there since one day who are well known for their great characters, charisma, and in-ring ability.

With fifteen years as a tag team, these two have been 8x ROH World Tag Team Champions with their excellent chemistry, their great characters, great charisma, and great in-ring abilities.

WWE had an interest in The Briscoes for the past five years and every time it seemed like they could sign The Briscoes for contracts, they never did as it’s either their looks or they’re just happy in ROH that they always re-sign with ROH. I don’t know if we’ll ever see The Briscoes in NXT, but if there’s a chance, they would be a fun tag team in the NXT Tag Team division. Man up!


2. Jay Lethal

From Elizabeth, New Jersey, Jay Lethal is one of the best talents and top stars in ROH has today who is well known for his great charisma and great in-ring ability.

With fifteen years of wrestling experience, this greatest first generation wrestler is here to show why he is the best in the world today. With his unique look, good character, great charisma, and great in-ring ability, he would do great in the NXT Championship picture.

WWE has an interest in Jay Lethal for the past two years, but every time they’re looking to sign Jay Lethal, he always managed to re-sign with ROH as he’s very content with his current position in the company. Either way, if Jay Lethal were ever to get signed with NXT, he would show the world why he is the greatest first generation wrestler.


1. Adam Cole

From Panama City, Florida, Adam Cole is one of the best talents and top stars in ROH has today who is well known for his excellent charisma and excellent in-ring ability.

With eight years of wrestling experience, this Panama City Playboy is here to show that he is one of the best wrestlers in the world today. With his unique look, great character, excellent charisma, and excellent in-ring ability, he would be excellent in the NXT Championship picture.

WWE has an interest in Adam Cole for the past five years, but Adam Cole said that he had no interest in signing with WWE at the moment as he’s clearly focused on ROH and possibly NJPW in the future. Even though I don’t think Adam Cole will be signing with NXT anytime soon, it’s only a matter of time when this Panama City Playboy gets to be at the top of the world. Adam Cole Bay Bay!
