* MegatonPunch: Employs something of a pop-up KO punch in his arsenal. Think [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Cesaro]] [[XMeetsY meets]] Wrestling/BigShow.

* BadassGay: Daria is a lesbian in RealLife, making her WWE's second openly gay wrestler (after [[Wrestling/PrimeTimePlayers Darren Young]]) and the first female one. Doesn't hinder her ability in any way.


Added DiffLines:

* PaperTiger: Her first few appearances on NXT TV had her being defeated rather easily despite her MMA background. Averted once she took a hiatus, changed her name and came back, becoming a full-on WrestlingMonster.

[[folder:Tommaso Ciampa]]
!!! 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.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Turned on Johnny Gargano after their loss to the Authors of Pain at ''Takeover: Chicago'']].
* 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 only 32. 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.)

[[folder:Johnny Gargano]]
!!! Johnny Gargano (John Anthony Nicholas Gargano)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/johnny_gargano.png]]
* 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]]".
* PutOnABus: After ''Takeover: Chicago'' and [[spoiler:Ciampa's vicious assault on Johnny]], he has not been seen on [=NXT=] or tweeted even once.
* 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.

* 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. They call it "Meeting in the Middle".

** ApologeticAttacker: ...He's usually very remorseful about it, though. He often apologizes to them backstage and is well aware he has a temper problem. In these cases, he nearly borders on GentleGiant.

[[folder:Angelo Dawkins]]
!!! Angelo Dawkins (Gary Gordon)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/angelo_dawkins.png]]
* CavalierCompetitor: Despite always jobbing, he calmly waits for the next opportunity. His WWE.com bio hints that he's more of a SpiritedCompetitor, but it's really not showing right now on NXT. This really irritated Sawyer Fulton while they were teaming.
* HiddenDepths: He's a former championship athlete in his college sports days. The way he calmly talks about waiting for another opportunity sounds similar to many a non-descript, sanitized post-game interview. Sawyer Fulton's growing fatigue with his sterile professionalism at all times eventually led to them breaking up.
* {{Hipster}}: Formerly. This was dropped in favor of an amateur wrestling gimmick when he started teaming with Sawyer Fulton.
* {{Jobber}}: Though he seems oddly cool about it.
* RedBaron: Adopted "The Curse of Greatness" as his moniker after splitting from Sawyer Fulton.

* ReplacedTheThemeTune: As is standard with wrestlers trying out new gimmicks, but she ended up cycling through three very different themes in the space of about a year. The first was "Did You Find It?" - a techno dance track that would have gone with her BellyDancer gimmick. The second was "Fatal Fantasy", a slower hip hop track with strong drums to fit a heel. The third "The Cat's Meow" is an upbeat dance theme to fit a perky face.
