* FinishingMove: When they get an opponent on their knees in the middle of the ring, they hit them with a simultaneous knee strike from Ciampa and super-kick from Gargano.

When a wrestler gets either released or called up to the main roster (Raw, Smackdown, etc.), remove them from here. If the latter, also add them to the respective character pages: [[Characters/WWENew New Era]], [[Characters/WWEDivas Divas]], or [[Characters/WWETagTeams Tag Teams]]. When they get an independent page, remove the tropes and put a link in to their page.

!!! Akam (Sunny Dhinsa)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akam.png]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He and Rezar came out after Wrestling/AmericanAlpha lost the NXT tag titles back to The Revival and utterly destroyed the ex-champions before being called to the back by legendary manager [[Wrestling/RoadWarriors Paul Ellering]].
* IdenticalStranger: He looks very similar to a heavier-set version of early-career Wrestling/DLoBrown.
* LightningBruiser: A 290-pound beast whose tandem offense with Rezar is surprisingly fast and appropriately painful.
* SpiritualSuccessor TagTeam: In the same vein as old school big vicious bruiser tandems such as the Powers of Pain, Faces of Fear, Demolition Road Warriors/Legion of Doom, etc., he and Rezar are known as the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Authors of Pain]]. Given that the Legion of Doom's former manager is now guiding the Authors, this is most likely on purpose.
* TattooedCrook: Has Polynesian ink on his right upper arm and chest.
* ThemeNaming: The philosophical principle of '''''[=Occam's=]''' razor'' goes that among competing hypotheses, select the simplest one with the least assumptions. What Akam and Rezar are here to do needs no assumptions made.

!!! Aliyah (Nhooph Al-Areebi)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aliyah_8.png]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown: She's part Arab, but this heritage has yet to be acknowledged, and she competes with light brown hair. Her ring name Aliyah is Middle-Eastern in origin but is popular among African, Hispanic and Jewish ethnicities too.
* BedlahBabe: Initially wrestled in ring gear with coins dangling from the hem and a bejewelled headband. After making her official TV debut, she swapped to a more traditional ring gear.
* FaceHeelTurn: She was a babyface during her first few appearances, but became a heel following her proper debut.
* HairDecorations: A headband with cat ears.
* HeelFaceTurn: Seems to be a face again after Liv Morgan saved her from being screwed over by Peyton Royce and Billie Kay, with Aliyah returning the favour when the two turned to Liv.
* IHaveTheHighGround: One of her signature moves is a leg drop while she's sitting on the top rope.
* {{Jobber}}: Given her inexperience, it's hardly surprising.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: She received one from Asuka, who wanted to send a message to Bayley.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Inverted--she wore a purple outfit during her first on-screen match, and got her ass handed to her on a silver platter.
* RedBaron: She calls herself both "The Cat's Meow" (referencing her cat-ear headband) and "The Chick From The Six" (referencing her area code).
* SuddenSequelHeelSyndrome: Her heel turn after her official debut came from out of nowhere.

!!! Tommaso Ciampa (Tommaso Whitney)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tommaso_ciampa.png]]
* BadassBeard: His beard has steadily grown longer, wilder, and more badass during his time in NXT.
* BaldOfAwesome
* BashBrothers: With Johnny Gargano. Although their friendship was tested when Gargano defeated Ciampa in the Cruiserweight Classic and a FaceHeelTurn was teased for Ciampa when Gargano tapped out to The Revival in their championship match at Takeover: Brooklyn II. However, Ciampa ultimately proved he valued their friendship more than winning and was simply determined that Gargano could recover so they could try again.
* FightingYourFriend: Fights against Gargano in the first round of the Cruiserweight Classic. Ciampa had the match all but won, but couldn't find it in himself to truly hurt Gargano, allowing the latter to steal the win with a crucifix pinning combination.
* IdenticalStranger: He looks like a slimmer version of Wrestling/{{Ryback}} with a thicker beard.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: He is also known as Psycho Killer, which comes from his theme in the independent circuit and which fans enjoy chanting.
* TagTeam: With Gargano as [=DIY=].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Don't let the weathered face and scraggly, somewhat graying beard (that Ciampa doesn't bother to dye) fool you - he's 31. For perspective, he's the same age as Wrestling/RomanReigns, give or take a couple of weeks. (Born May 8, 1985; Reigns was born May 25 of the same year.)

!!! Patrick Clark
* AmbiguouslyGay: Lots of Music/{{Prince}} references abound as per his wardrobe and mannerisms, but he's also been seen blowing kisses and licking his lips seductively in the direction of his opponents.
* {{Expy}}: Very early stages of Wrestling/{{Goldust}}. Does he actually swing that way, or is he just messing with opponents' heads? No one quite knows yet...
* TooDumbToLive: ...What we ''do'' know, however, is that Patrick Clark caught the IdiotBall and made possibly the dumbest decision imaginable when he, on a recent episode of NXT, walked down to the ring in the middle of a Wrestling/ShinsukeNakamura promo and challenged him to a match. Now, given that Nakamura was the reigning NXT Champion, this is already a horrible idea. Now, add the fact that Shinsuke had been in a bad mood for about two months, he was in the middle of challenging Wrestling/SamoaJoe to a rematch, and a week prior he had just got done kicking Joe's ass all over Full Sail (not to mention laying waste to every security guard that tried to interfere). Predictably, Shinsuke used him for a couple of tune-up kicks before kneeing his face in with a Kinshasa.

!!! [[Wrestling/{{Sanity}} Nikki Cross (Nicola Glencross)]]

!!! Sonya Deville (Daria Berenato)
* BloodKnight: Agrees to join Peyton Royce and Billie Key against Ember Moon, Liv Morgan, and Aliyah since it means she gets a chance to beat people up. Naturally, she's the one who ate the pinfall.
* BraidsOfAction[=/=]TomboyishPonytail: Typically has her hair in either style or a combo, which goes with her professional MMA fighter gimmick. As she is fond of saying on twitter "put up your hair and square up".
* IKnowKarate: She's a trained MMA fighter.

!!! Otis Dozovic (Nikola Bogojevic)

* TagTeam: With Tommaso as [=DIY=].
* WrestlingPsychology[=/=]ContinuityNod: An interesting note here as he was one of NXT's representatives for the Wrestling/WWECruiserweightClassic as a singles competitor. In storyline, an injury to his knee that happened in NXT competition would [[GameBreakingInjury cost him a match in the CWC a few episodes after the one he had with Ciampa.]] But because the CWC episodes were taped a month or so before the ''NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II'' live PPV where he would be hurt, he was put in the unique position of having to sell a storyline injury in the CWC that, chronologically speaking, hadn't happened yet.

* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Whether or not it would've actually been "awesome" is anyone's guess - but NXT spent a good month or two airing vignettes hyping up his debut and having the commentary team put him over. When the day finally came, he came out to the ring only to [[CurbStompBattle get his ass kicked]] by Wrestling/SamoaJoe before whatever opponent he would have had could show up.

* CatchPhrase: "We are the mighty, and the mighty don't kneel." Ported over from TM-61's time together in Australia, where their tag team was actually called "The Mighty Don't Kneel" (TMDK for short).
* LandDownUnder: He and Shane are from Australia
* TagTeam: With Shane Thorne as [=TM-61=], a combination of their last initials and Australia's country code.
** GeniusBonus: No way of telling if this was intentional or not, but typing "TM-61" into TheOtherWiki leads you [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MGM-1_Matador here.]]

!!! Ember Moon (Adrienne Reese)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ember_moon.png]]
* AwesomeButImpractical: Her diving stunner finishing move. It's an amazing move that definitely shows how athletic Ember is, but its difficulty makes it very easy to botch and could potentially cause tailbone fractures.
* AmazonianBeauty: She's very thick and muscular.
* DarkIsNotEvil: There's definitely a 'darkness' to her character - she doesn't really say a lot, often wears masks and hoods to the ring, and [[RedEyesTakeWarning has piercing, red eyes]]... she's been booked very heroically since the jump, though, including aiding Liv Morgan and Aliyah against Billie Kay and Peyton Royce who had been bullying them.
* IdenticalStranger: She looks a lot like Wrestling/{{Naomi}}.
* IHaveTheHighGround: Her finisher involves her doing a stunner from the top rope.
* MultiColoredHair: Her long black hair has blonde tips.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: She's one of the shortest females on the roster, but her athletisism and power are impressive.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Has recently taken to wearing bright red contacts to the ring. [[NightmareFuel It's as unnerving as it sounds.]]

!!! Liv Morgan (Gionna Daddio)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/liv_morgan.png]]
* BigEater: She talks about food a lot on social media.
* CurbStompBattle: Tapped out to Asuka in a matter of seconds.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: She's pretty tan.
* DistaffCounterpart: To [[Wrestling/EnzoAndCass Enzo Amore]], as they both come from the same Bergen County area and have similar appearances and mannerisms. The two are also seen interacting a lot on social media posts.
* EarlyBirdCameo: She debuted at a Takeover event as a fan jumping on Tyler Breeze during his entrance.
* FearlessFool: She called out Asuka, knowing full well she will likely get her ass kicked ([[EpicFail which she did]]), but wanted the opportunity anyway.
* GenkiGirl: She has lots of energy in her entrance.
* HiddenDepths: Although she's a tough NJ brawler type, she shows off some impressive athleticism and flexibility - using a few Matrix dodges and handsprings to set up moves.
* IHaveManyNames: She used her real name on live events, appeared as 'Marley' on an episode of NXT and eventually settled on Liv Morgan.
* {{Joisey}}: She is a proud New Jerseyan who has her area code of 201 (she is from Elmwood Park in Bergen County) featured prominently in her Titantron video and on her clothing. This is the same area code that gave us fellow Joisey-stereotype Enzo Amore and former female star AJ Lee (who are from Hackensack, also Bergen, and Union City, Hudson, respectively).
* KickChick: She got her first win with a roundhouse kick to Aliyah.
* OddFriendship: She and Aliyah were opponents one week, Liv picking up the win. When Billie Kay and Peyton Royce cheated to attack Aliyah, Liv came down and saved her despite having no reason to. As a result, Aliyah TookALevelInKindness and immediately came to Liv's rescue when the Aussies attacked her. They have been friends ever since.
* PluckyGirl: She's got a lot of heart to fight, even if it doesn't translate into immediate victories.
* PunnyName: A few puns have been made using her first name like "Liv Life" and "Living Large", or her Twitter handle [=@YaOnlyLivvOnce=].
* SheFu: As noted above, there's a few Matrixes, cartwheels and handsprings in there. She's a former competitive cheerleader.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: There are many similarities between her and Wrestling/{{Carmella}}. They're both urban {{Dark Skinned Blonde}}s who wear similar outfits and a TomboyishBaseballCap in their entrance and both hail from the New England area, Carmella from Staten Island[[note]]at least in Kayfabe, Leah Van Dale is actually from Massachusetts[[/note]] and Liv from New Jersey. Behind the scenes Liv seems pretty cozy with Enzo Amore while Carmella is confirmed to be dating Big Cass. It also doesn't help that like Mandy Rose (see below), she made her official debut right after Carmella was called up to the main roster, leaving her bordering on being a ReplacementScrappy to some. The main difference between the two is that Carmella was a Girly Girl despite the cap whereas Liv is more tomboyish. As of Carmella's heel turn on the main roster, there are slightly more differences.
* TomboyishBaseballCap: She wears one to the ring.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She's a LadEtte who's also a beautiful blonde and former cheerleader.
* TookALevelInBadass: She was initially a jobber on TV and tapped out to Asuka within a few seconds. But she put work in to get better, and picked up a few wins. She was also able to take it to veterans Billie Kay and Ember Moon in a #1 contender's match.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pizza, judging by her social media.

It also doesn't help that like Mandy Rose (see below), she made her official debut right after Carmella was called up to the main roster, leaving her bordering on being a ReplacementScrappy to some. The main difference between the two is that Carmella was a Girly Girl despite the cap whereas Liv is more tomboyish. As of Carmella's heel turn on the main roster, there are slightly more differences.
* TomboyishBaseballCap: She wears one to the ring.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She's a LadEtte who's also a beautiful blonde and former cheerleader.
* TookALevelInBadass: She was initially a jobber on TV and tapped out to Asuka within a few seconds. But she put work in to get better, and picked up a few wins. She was also able to take it to veterans Billie Kay and Ember Moon in a #1 contender's match.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pizza, judging by her social media.

* AmazonianBeauty: She's a former bodybuilder and fitness model.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: By way of tanning.
* IdenticalStranger: She bears more than a passing resemblance to Wrestling/TrishStratus, particularly during Trish's early years when she was more bulky. Both were also fitness models before becoming wrestlers.
* KickChick: One of her {{Signature Move}}s is a running bicycle kick, though it looks more like a knee strike than a kick.
* SpiritualSuccessor: More than a few fans have called her "a better version of Wrestling/EvaMarie." Both women are former models who came into WWE through reality shows (Eva through ''Series/TotalDivas'', Mandy through ''Wrestling/WWEToughEnough''). The reason why Mandy is the "better" version is because, unlike Eva, who was put on the main roster almost immediately with minimal training and subsequently became [[TheScrappy one of the most hated wrestlers in the company]], she spent a year training and working NXT house shows before her TV debut and her ring work is passable. The fact that she and Eva were quite friendly with each other on ''Total Divas'', she debuted shortly after Eva was called up and Corey Graves' first reaction to her only heightens the comparison.
-->'''Corey Graves:''' I'll tell you what, at this point Mandy Rose is runner up to only one thing in my life: Eva Marie. Beyond that, that's it.\\
'''Tom Phillips:''' [[OhNoNotAgain Oh no.]]

* FlowerInHerHair: Flowers have recently become a part of her [[FlowerMotif motif.]]
* GreenAndMean: She's taken to wearing green attires and she definitely has an attitude.
* IdenticalStranger: Very similar to Eva Marie in the face and body.
* {{Jobber}}: Was initially this under her real first name Cassie, but she's picked up a few wins since then.
* KickChick: Depending on how much offense she gets in, it's possible for her to go through a match doing nothing but kicks.
* KickTheDog: She and Billie taunted Liv Morgan following a CurbStompBattle she suffered at the hands of Asuka.
* LandDownUnder: Where she and Billie both grew up, attended the same high school, as well as first trained together.
* RedBaron: "The Venus Flytrap of NXT"
* RedheadInGreen: Well, more of a burgundy shade.
* SuplexFinisher: She's been using a Fisherman's Suplex as of late.
* VillainousBreakdown: Tends to go to pieces if an opponent starts kicking out or no selling her offense, despite this meaning she's still got the momentum. In one match [[TheDreaded Asuka]] kicking out after a two count reduced her to [[TooDumbToLive a screaming tantrum and some weak shoves]], after which Asuka predictably recovered and flattened her.

* FaceHeelTurn: She was a babyface during her first few appearances, but became a heel following her proper debut.
* HairDecorations: A headband with cat ears.
* HeelFaceTurn: Seems to be a face again after Liv Morgan saved her from being screwed over by Peyton Royce and Billie Kay, with Aliyah returning the favour when the two turned to Liv.

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: She received one from Asuka, who wanted to send a message to Bayley.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Inverted--she wore a purple outfit during her first

* AmazonianBeauty: She's very thick and muscular.
* DarkIsNotEvil: There's definitely a 'darkness' to her character - she doesn't really say a lot, often wears masks and hoods to the ring, and [[RedEyesTakeWarning has piercing, red eyes]]... she's been booked very heroically since the jump, though, including aiding Liv Morgan and Aliyah against Billie Kay and Peyton Royce who had been bullying them.

* GenkiGirl: She has lots of energy in her entrance.

* {{Joisey}}: She is a proud New Jerseyan who has her area code of 201 (she is from Elmwood Park in Bergen County) featured prominently in her Titantron video and on her clothing. This is the same area code that gave us fellow Joisey-stereotype Enzo Amore and former female star AJ Lee (who are from Hackensack, also Bergen, and Union City, Hudson, respectively).
* KickChick: She got her first win with a roundhouse kick to Aliyah.
* OddFriendship: She and Aliyah were opponents one week, Liv picking up the win. When Billie Kay and Peyton Royce cheated to attack Aliyah, Liv came down and saved her despite having no reason to. As a result, Aliyah TookALevelInKindness and immediately came to Liv's rescue when the Aussies attacked her. They have been friends ever since.
* PluckyGirl: She's got a lot of heart to fight, even if it doesn't translate into immediate victories.
* PunnyName: A few puns have been made using her first name like "Liv Life" and "Living Large", or her Twitter handle [=@YaOnlyLivvOnce=].
* SheFu: As noted above, there's a few Matrixes, cartwheels and handsprings in there. She's a former competitive cheerleader.

* FinishingMove: Two of them:
** "The Last Chapter" is a Russian Legsweep and Lariat combination.
** "Super Collider" is stereo powerbombs after knocking their opponents together.
* SpiritualSuccessor TagTeam: In the same vein as old school big vicious bruiser tandems such as the Powers of Pain, Faces of Fear, Demolition Road Warriors/Legion of Doom, etc., they are known as the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Authors of Pain]].

!!!As a Team
* ArchEnemy: The Revival is theirs, with the two feuding for over half-a-year for the NXT tag titles.
* BashBrothers: These two will do anything for each other, in and out of the ring. Although their friendship was tested when Gargano defeated Ciampa in the Cruiserweight Classic and a FaceHeelTurn was teased for Ciampa when Gargano tapped out to The Revival in their championship match at Takeover: Brooklyn II. However, Ciampa ultimately proved he valued their friendship more than winning and was simply determined that Gargano could recover so they could try again.
* FightingYourFriend: They fought each other in the first round of the Cruiserweight Classic. Ciampa had the match all but won, but couldn't find it in himself to truly hurt Gargano, allowing the latter to steal the win with a crucifix pinning combination.
* FinishingMove: When they get an opponent on their knees in the middle of the ring, they hit them with a simultaneous knee strike from Ciampa and super-kick from Gargano.

!!! Tommaso Ciampa (Tommaso Whitney)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tommaso_ciampa.png]]
* BadassBeard: His beard has steadily grown longer, wilder, and more badass during his time in NXT.
* BaldOfAwesome: He now shaves his head. Combined with his beard, it creates a suitably threatening and slightly crazy look.
* FinishingMove: A running knee to the head.
* IdenticalStranger: He looks like a slimmer version of Wrestling/{{Ryback}} with a thicker beard.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: He is also known as Psycho Killer, which comes from his theme in the independent circuit and which fans enjoy chanting.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Don't let the weathered face and scraggly, somewhat graying beard (that Ciampa doesn't bother to dye) fool you - he's 31. For perspective, he's the same age as Wrestling/RomanReigns, give or take a couple of weeks. (Born May 8, 1985; Reigns was born May 25 of the same year.)

* AffectionateNickname: Everybody calls him "Johnny Wrestling."
* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: Ended Elias Samson's undefeated streak.
* FinishingMove: For submission he uses a over the shoulder crossface chickwing he dubs the "[[PunnyName Garga-No-Escape]]".
* SignatureMove: A slingshot spear through the top and middle rope. He often does it after being tagged in by Ciampa. However, it is somewhat predictable, and The Revival have countered it several times, including into a Shatter Machine.
* WrestlingPsychology[=/=]ContinuityNod: An interesting note here as he was one of NXT's representatives for the Wrestling/WWECruiserweightClassic as a singles competitor. In storyline, an injury to his knee that happened in NXT competition would [[GameBreakingInjury cost him a match in the CWC a few episodes after the one he had with Ciampa.]] But because the CWC episodes were taped a month or so before the ''NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II'' live PPV where he would be hurt, he was put in the unique position of having to sell a storyline injury in the CWC that, chronologically speaking, hadn't happened yet.

* PutOnABus: After Shane Thorne suffered a knee injury in early 2017, he was viciously attacked by The Revival post-match to explain his absence for surgery. Nick Miller also disappeared from TV despite still being able to compete.

!!NXT House Show talent
Contains Superstars who have yet to become full-time members of the NXT television roster and primarily work house shows. If they do show up on-screen it is mainly as a {{jobber}} or for short storylines.

[[folder:Singles Wrestlers]]
!!! Chris Atkins

!!! Tian Bing (Bin Wang)

!!! Cezar Bononi

!!! Patrick Clark
* AmbiguouslyGay: Lots of Music/{{Prince}} references abound as per his wardrobe and mannerisms, but he's also been seen blowing kisses and licking his lips seductively in the direction of his opponents.
* {{Expy}}: Very early stages of Wrestling/{{Goldust}}. Does he actually swing that way, or is he just messing with opponents' heads? No one quite knows yet...
* TooDumbToLive: ...What we ''do'' know, however, is that Patrick Clark caught the IdiotBall and made possibly the dumbest decision imaginable when he, on a recent episode of NXT, walked down to the ring in the middle of a Wrestling/ShinsukeNakamura promo and challenged him to a match. Now, given that Nakamura was the reigning NXT Champion, this is already a horrible idea. Now, add the fact that Shinsuke had been in a bad mood for about two months, he was in the middle of challenging Wrestling/SamoaJoe to a rematch, and a week prior he had just got done kicking Joe's ass all over Full Sail (not to mention laying waste to every security guard that tried to interfere). Predictably, Shinsuke used him for a couple of tune-up kicks before kneeing his face in with a Kinshasa.

!!! King Constantine (Radomir Petković)

!!! Steve Cutler (Tommy Maclin)
* SemperFi: Maclin was a legit former Marine before becoming a professional wrestler. This carries over into Cutler's wrestling "character."

!!! Preston Cunningham Jr. (Joshua Woods)

!!! Dallas Harper

!!! Peter Howard

!!! Adrian Jaoude

!!! Thomas Kingdon

!!! Dan Matha
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: After several weeks of hype, he debuted on NXT only to get the crap kicked out of him by a rampaging Wrestling/SamoaJoe, and hasn't been seen since.
* {{Expy}}: From a background standpoint, Wrestling/BaronCorbin. Both men are about the same size, and both have the similar background of being fringe offensive linemen in the NFL before wrestling.
* IdenticalStranger: Take Simon Miller from WebVideo/WhatCultureWrestling, make him bigger (and Simon's already not a small lad) and you've basically got Dan Matha.
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Whether or not it would've actually been "awesome" is anyone's guess - but NXT spent a good month or two airing vignettes hyping up his debut and having the commentary team put him over. When the day finally came, he came out to the ring only to [[CurbStompBattle get his ass kicked]] by Wrestling/SamoaJoe before whatever opponent he would have had could show up. [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse He hasn't been seen on the show since.]]

!!! Bronson Mathews (Josh Bredhl)

!!! Dylan Miley

!!! Jeet Rama (Satender Ved Pal)

!!! Kona Reeves (Noah Pang-Potjes)
* EnemyMine: When a match between him and Rich Swann is interrupted by Wrestling/{{Sanity}}, Reeves and Swann attempt to fight the psychotic group off together but are quickly beaten down.
* SlasherSmile: Tends to flash a very creepy and evil looking grin, which the announcers and the other wrestlers find unnerving.

!!! Brennan Williams
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Women's Division]]
!!! Sonya Deville (Daria Berenato)
* BloodKnight: Agrees to join Peyton Royce and Billie Key against Ember Moon, Liv Morgan, and Aliyah since it means she gets a chance to beat people up. Naturally, she's the one who ate the pinfall.
* BraidsOfAction[=/=]TomboyishPonytail: Typically has her hair in either style or a combo, which goes with her professional MMA fighter gimmick. As she is fond of saying on twitter "put up your hair and square up".
* IKnowKarate: She's a trained MMA fighter.
* {{Revenge}}: After Peyton and Billie abandoned her in their match against Ember, Liv, and Aliyah, she attempted to get even with a match against Billie, but Peyton interfered and Daria lost.

!!! Lacey Evans (Macey Estrella)

!!! Danielle Kamela

!!! Kimber Lee (Kimberley Frankele)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tag Teams and Stables]]
!!! Gabriel and Uriel Ealy - The Ealy Brothers
* CurbStompBattle: During Samoa Joe's rampage against the NXT roster to force William Regal into giving him a title rematch against an injured Nakamura he attacked the Ealy twins before their scheduled match against The Revival and completely dominated both of them at once.
* TagTeamTwins: They are identical brothers and a tag team.

!!! Riddick Moss (Michael Rallis) & Tino Sabatelli (Sabatino Piscitelli)

* DrawAggro: His first match on NXT's television proper was him sitting in the middle of the ring...and catching the poor fool that took the bait with the Black Mass kick.



* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: ''Aleister Black'' definitely has some foreboding feeling to it.

* NoDoubtTheYearsHaveChangedMe: Well, more like ''months'', but just look at him now in the picture to the right as a member of [=sAnitY=] [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sawyer.png compared to his previous look]]. Even when the announcers [[TheReveal told you]] that it was Sawyer Fulton, it was a bit hard to believe if you remembered him as the guy pictured in the link.
* PutOnABus: Fulton suffered a longterm injury and was subsequently kicked out of the [=SAnitY=] faction.
* ThePeteBest:[[invoked]] May be set up to be this for [=SAnitY=], as a recent episode of NXT saw the stable come down to the ring without him, then had Eric Young make a point of stomping and spitting on his jacket before hurling it out of the ring. This indicates that Fulton may have left the group or been kicked out — possibly to be replaced by the ''[[TheBrute massive]]'' Irishman known as Killian Dain.
