You're forgetting the women. Charlotte has been a star. Alexa bliss and Carmella (like Elias) have exceeded expectations. Sasha banks, bayley and Becky Lynch have all done well. Maybe not as well as expected, but still have done wellErick Von Erich wrote: Since "the Network Era", Kevin Owens, Shinsuke Nakamura, Rusev and (unexpectedly) Elias seem to be the only NXT call-ups who have really done well. Sami Zayn has done okay. Samoa Joe has had the injury thing. Finn Balor's just been...there.
Kind of a reach to go with Mason Ryan as an example. If you're going back to that time (2012-ish), then you'd have to include NXT call-ups The Shield. They've done well.
You could add Neville as another flop. They presented him as a Big Deal upon his arrival, but it quickly fizzled out. They tried to revive him with 205 Live, but I don't know if you can score that as a success.
This doesn't mean "NXT is full of a buncha' over-rated clowns". NXT, itself, is pretty darn good and the best wrestling show today; hands down. Now, when guys LEAVE and go to the main roster--- that's when it all goes to poo.
Ah yeah, I remember that, it was pretty funny. I seem to remember Mike Tenay being all like "WHAT ARE THEY DOING HERE?!?!?!" and I'm sitting on my couch like "What the hell are they doing here...?"torturedsoulv1 wrote: Bashams had a short run in TNA after their ECW run
