!!!Enzo Amore (Eric Arndt)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/enzo_8302.png]]
* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Carmella, mainly because she's obviously not interested in him at all and he refuses to take the hint.
* ArchEnemy: Sylvester Lefort.
* AwesomeEgo: Same ego, but now a face, and the crowd loves the schtick.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: One might think that while he was wheelchair-bound, he couldn't do much damage... and yet he was perfectly capable of running over Aiden English's foot.
* BigDamnHeroes: Abruptly [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcICzhl94-4 returned]] after recovering from an injury to come to Big Cass' aid against the Legionnaires.
* BullyingADragon: Does this to Mason Ryan. Just a reminder, Mason Ryan is 6'3 and 295 pounds.
* CatchPhrase: ''So many.'' The winner seems to be calling his opponents S-A-W-F-T, SAAAAWFT.
** "How you doin'?"
** "My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bonafide stud. And you can't. Teach. That. And this right here? This is Big Cass, and he's 7 foot tall. And you can't. Teach. That. Bada boom, realest guys in the room! HOW YOU DOIN'?"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Not so much on the mic or in the ring, but his backstage promos with Cass occasionally run into this. In one promo, Cass takes over the speaking after a short intro by Enzo. For the rest of the promo, Enzo ponders over something Cass said before having an epiphany in the last 20 seconds and insistently trying to get Cass' attention to point out the fact that he understood the joke.
* {{Expy}}[=/=]SpiritualSuccessor: Enzo's basically a louder, hammier, more ridiculous version of Road Dogg. Introduce self in hammy manner, introduce partner in hammy manner, do so consistently enough that the audience can say your intro with you verbatim, and have the crowd finish off with your catchphrase. It's basically lifted straight out of New Age Outlaws.
* FanNickname: The Realest Guys, for him and Big Cass.
* HiddenDepths: In one promo during the period when his leg was broken, he offhandedly remarks that a place he'd been to wasn't handicapped-accessible and thus were liable.
* HeelFaceTurn: Turned face solely because everyone in the crowd cheered him for his comical MilesGloriosus nature.
* InsistentTerminology: More like insistent spelling: He refers to the opposition as soft, spelled "S-A-W-F-T... SAWWWWFT!" Also counts as FunetikAksent.
* {{Joisey}}: Billed from New Jersey.
* {{Keet}}: Dear Lord, the man is ''hyper''.
* LargeHam: '''Oh, my GOD.''' It's like it's his default setting.
* LimitedWardrobe: Limited, in that just about everything he wears ''will'' have leopard-print somewhere on it, as did his customised wheelchair. Hell, he's even shaved the design into his ''hair''.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Mean is stretching it (a lawt), but nevertheless, during the month where WWE was promoting the Susan G. Komen foundation, instead of the normal ridiculous designs shaved into the side of his head, he had the Koman ribbon on one side and their slogan (Rise) on the other.
* MeaningfulName: "Amore" is Italian for "love". Given how much he talks about being a stud...
* MilesGloriosus
--> "If me and Cass had a dime for every time we got beat up as a kid, we'd have ''ZERO DIMES!''"
* [[NoIndoorVoice NO INDOOR VOICE:]] Enzo has two volume settings: loud and ''louder.''
* PhraseCatcher: "Shut up, Enzo."
* PluckyComicRelief: Serves the role of bringing lighthearted comedy segments and hilarious promos (even comedy wrestling matches) to NXT. This role of being the humorous breather between other storylines and matches was particularly evident in NXT Takeover II.
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: He's pretty sexist, though it should be noted that Big Cass immediately calls him out for it and Enzo's been portrayed as an idiot every time he does something sexist.
* PutOnABus: Due to breaking his leg, though he showed up in backstage segments.
* SmallNameBigEgo
--> "My name is Enzo Amore, and I'm a certified G, and a bona fide stud! Bada boom! Realest guy in da room!"
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: He claims that he's never had a girlfriend because he 'refuses to commit himself to failure', not because, by his own admission, he treats women like dirt.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Colin Cassady.
* TooDumbToLive: The training vignettes show that he's refusing to take Carmella seriously as a potential superstar, even when she keeps handing him his arse.
** He's also refusing to accept that Carmella is not interested in him at all, despite all his advances being rebuffed (sometimes violently).

!!! Finn Bálor (Fergal Devitt)
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Kayfabe has GM William Regal claiming that it's Gaelic for "''demon king''", but [[https://twitter.com/fergaldevitt/status/515498424922542080 the actual origin is at least as cool]].
* {{Badass}}: In his debut, he and Hideo Itami [[CurbStompBattle demolished]] The Ascension.
* FightingIrish
* FinishingStomp: A huge diving foot stomp from the top turnbuckle... [[IHaveTheHighGround and, man, does he get]] ''[[DeathFromAbove up.]]''
* MrFanservice: Get a load of those abs.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Unlike what happened to Hideo Itami (FKA KENTA), the announcers at NXT talked at length about Prince Devitt's indy credentials without ever recognizing that he had once been known as Prince Devitt.
* YouLookFamiliar: Former indy standout and New Japan Pro Wrestling star/top heel Prince Devitt.

!!!Wrestling/SashaBanks (Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado)

!!!Wrestling/{{Bayley}} (Pamela Martinez)

!!! Alexa Bliss (Alexis Kaufman)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alexa_6805.png]]
* BadassAdorable
* BareYourMidriff
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She may be tiny, cute and adorable, but don't take her lightly.
** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8y8HlK17Nw one match]] against Banks, she looked visibly angry at Banks (who'd given her a nosebleed during the match) and got very aggressive.
* BishieSparkle: Her entrance is meant to evoke this.
* CatchPhrase: "Bliss your heart".
** GettingCrapPastTheRadar: It's a slight variation of 'bless your heart', which can be a compliment, but is also a G-rated way to say 'You're a moron'.
* CuteBruiser: Emphasised, as Renee Young described her as looking like a fairy. She's also a little more modest than the typical Diva.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Was appearing on NXT for as early as a year before she debuted, she appeared at live events as the girlfriend of redneck Scott Dawson and filmed a couple of promos for it, she had a stint as a ring announcer, and she's also the girl in the often-used clip of Tyler Breeze asking a girl if she wanted to take a picture, only to clarify that he meant ''of'' him as opposed to ''with'' him. She also appeared at ''[=WrestleMania=] 30'' as part of Triple H's entrance, along with Charlotte and Sasha Banks.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Seems to be the only blonde Diva playing this straight.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: Oh my, yes. Her ring gear is adorned with sparkles and she blows a stream of glitter to the fans.
* {{Foil}}: To Charlotte, essentially. Both are gymnasts and their gimmicks invoke their blonde hair, but where Charlotte goes the AlphaBitch route, Alexa is billed as the bubbly blonde. This goes down to their physiques too - Charlotte is more tall and lean compared to Alexa, who is more athletic and bigger in build (similar to Emma).
* GirlySkirtTwirl
* GoodIsDumb: She had a promo just before her rematch with Sasha Banks, where she said that she was sure to win because Sasha had lost even with the rest of the [=BFFs=] there to back her up, and the [=BFFs=] weren't around for the rematch... except that in the original match, Sasha flattened her, and the only reason Alexa won was because Charlotte and Summer Rae started fighting at ringside and Sasha got distracted. (She lost the rematch.)
* IHaveTheHighGround: Can do a somersault off the top for the hell of it. Her finisher is also a 450 splash.
* KidAppealCharacter: In the same vein as Rey Mysterio. She's short, colourful and also adorable.
* MinoredInAssKicking: And majored in bedazzling, apparently.
* PartsUnknown: From "The University of Bliss" (which is apparently somewhere in Columbus, Ohio).
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Although she is very small and athletic, she is also a former body builder.
* SheFu /WaifFu: What do you expect from a former gymnast and cheerleader? The second was emphasized in her first match by Renee Young comparing her to Thumbelina.
* SkipOfInnocence
* SlasherSmile
* TrueBlueFemininity: All her outfits have varying shades of blue on them, as does her hair.
* UnnecessaryCombatRoll: Her somersault off the top rope doesn't really seem to serve much of a purpose - but it sure is impressive.
* WeakButSkilled: A major point of her debut match. She was essentially overpowered by Alicia Fox, but caught her off guard by thinking outside the box.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Blonde hair with blue tips.

!!! Tyler Breeze (Mattias Clement)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tyler_6170.png]]
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* CampStraight
* CatchPhrase: He likes to insult people by calling them 'Uggos'.
* CharacterDevelopment: Went from being a SissyVillain who was reluctant to let his face and hair get messed up to a legitimate contender for the NXT title who had no problem getting hit in the face, but continued to focus on his looks to throw his opponents off their games.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: "Sings" the lyrics to "#Mmmgorgeous", which basically amounts to Tyler talking about how really really really ridiculously good looking he is.
* {{Expy}}:
** Of ''Film/{{Zoolander}}'' - he practically emulates Zoolander's signature "Blue Steel" look as he walks to the ring.
** Of post-Rockers Wrestling/ShawnMichaels - he's athletic, he's arrogant, his FinishingMove is a kick to the head, and he sings his own theme music which features lyrics talking about how good-looking he is.
* TheFightingNarcissist
* GorgeousGeorge
* GroinAttack: Accidentally low-blowed Sami Zayn during their match at Takeover- Zayn launched a kick at Breeze, who threw his arms up to cover his face and accidentally hit Zayn in the groin.
* IncomingHam: He makes it a point in his entrance to turn around dramatically just as the music really gets going.
** His original theme built up for 10 seconds, before the spotlights fell on Tyler as the main tune kicked in.
** "#Mmmgorgeous" starts with a crowd of paparazzi calling for Tyler to look in their direction.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He pretty much had a fit when he found out that the song '#selfie' by the Chainsmokers didn't have a single selfie of him in it. After starting a campaign, the Chainsmokers put one of his selfies in an updated version of the video.
* NotInTheFace: Obviously his weak spot; he'd also prefer it if his hair didn't get messed up. CJ Parker made a point of targeting his face because of this, and as a a result he got better about it.
* PrettyInMink: It's become something of a RunningGag that all of his clothes are made out of the fur of extremely exotic animals.
* RedBaron: The King of Cuteville, the Sire of Selfies and Prince Pretty.
* ShakingHerHairLoose: Generally starts matches with his hair in a neat bun. Once the pace of the match picks up, he stops caring about his hair, and it usually ends up in a frazzled mess.
* SissyVillain: Perhaps because of this and the general silliness of the gimmick, even though he's a heel, he still gets cheers.
** As his feud with CJ Parker escalated, he started to become ''afraid'' of the guy, with stunts like running out of the ring at the bell.
* SlobsVersusSnobs: His feud with CJ Parker with Parker as the slob, himself as the snob.
* VanityIsFeminine: He loves to take selfies of himself, something teenage girls are known for. He's also obsessed with his appearance so therefore we must hate him.
* WrestlingDoesntPay: He's a model turned wrestler.
* YouLookFamiliar: Oh hey there, Mike Dalton.

!!!Carmella (Leah Van Dale)
* BerserkButton: She ''really'' didn't like Enzo and Big Cass throwing around sexist comments... by which we mean that she picked up a medicine ball and threw it into Enzo's stomach.
* BigApplesauce
* BoisterousBruiser:
* BorrowedCatchphrase: Used "How you doin'?" in a vignette after she dropkicked Enzo out of the ring.
* ButNotTooWhite: Look at that tan!
* CatchPhrase: "Bada bing, hottest chick in the ring".
* ChekhovsGunman: First appeared in an online video with Enzo Amore and Big Cass as a friend of theirs that worked in a hair salon. She was recognised immediately from live events.
* ClarkKentOutfit: At the gym, Enzo expects her to have no clue how to work out. Off-screen, she takes her tracksuit off - and she is ''ripped''.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: By way of obvious fake tan, of course.
* EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry: Of the hoop earrings and golden necklace variety.
* IHaveBrothers: And claims to be tougher than all five of them.
* ImpossiblyTackyClothes: The leopard print tracksuit she wore to the gym.
** Averted with her sensible training gear.
** Her ring gear combines leopard print with ''lots'' of rhinestones.
* MulticoloredHair: Honey blonde mixed with brown.
* NamesTheSame: Carmella is also the name of a contestant from the 2004 Diva Search - an EliminationHoudini that received large amounts of XPacHeat both from fans and her fellow contestants.
* RedBaron: "The Princess of Staten Island".
* WrestlingDoesntPay: Inverted. She's a hairdresser turned wrestler.
* YouGoGirl: To a small extent. Enzo frequently underestimates her in training - only for her to get the better of him.

!!!Colin "Big Cass" Cassady (Bill Morrissey)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/colin_7740.png]]
* BlatantLies: He always promises Enzo that he won't post the videos of them and Carmella (which usually end with Enzo looking like an idiot). It took Enzo a while to catch on, but he got there in the end.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: He usually borrows Enzo's, mostly 'How you doin'?' and 'Sawft'.
* TheBrute
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: For Enzo.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DuckSeasonRabbitSeason: Pulls one off on Aiden English, though how intentional it was is debatable.
* TheGiant: 7 foot tall, and you ''can't teach that.''
* HiddenDepths: Gets into a sing off with Aiden English... and actually sings really well.
* LargeHam: Not as much as Enzo, but it's there.
* NonIdleRich
* NotSoAboveItAll: Sure, he looks like the more sensible one, but he's more than happy to participate in Enzo's weirdness.
* OnlySaneMan: He is this towards Enzo.
* PhraseCatcher: "And this right here? This is Big Cass. He's 7 foot tall, and you can't. Teach. That."
* ShoutOut: During NXT Takeover 2, Big Cass calls for the bucket in the same way the Dudley Boys would call for the table.
* TheStraightMan: Serves as this to Enzo Amore. That this applies shows just how over-the-top Enzo is.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Enzo Amore.

!!!Charlotte (Ashley Fliehr-Johnson)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charlotte1_2194.png]]
* AlphaBitch: Replaced Wrestling/SummerRae as the head of the Beautiful Fierce Females when Summer got promoted to the main roster, before the [=BFF=]s disbanded and Charlotte made a face turn.
* AmazonianBeauty
* BackstabbingTheAlphaBitch: Did so to Summer Rae, dissolving the Beautiful Fierce Females.
* CanonName: Being openly acknowledged as Wrestling/RicFlair's daughter while using a one-name ring name tends to have that effect.
* DaddysLittleVillain: As of the NXT Arrival event. Ric Flair even helped her defeat Emma in a match.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Defeated Bayley in her debut match and the two somehow became friends afterwards. Since it is [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Bayley]], it's not that unreasonable.
* DistaffCounterpart: To her father, declaring herself 'The Dirtiest ''Diva'' In The Game'.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: After her FaceHeelTurn her hair had been two-toned but became fully blonde and a little shorter. Also when she won the Women's Championship, she added extensions and always wore her hair curly.
* {{Expy}}: Remarkably similar to Wrestling/TaminaSnuka character-wise during her 2012 push in that she uses many of her father's signature moves, taunts and CatchPhrase. Not to mention they both started their careers in developmental a bit later than most Diva prospects.
* FunWithAcronyms: She, Wrestling/SashaBanks, and Wrestling/SummerRae were '''[=BFFs=]''' -- actually the Beautiful Fierce Females, actually the name of their wrestling stable.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Tends to wear a lot of purple on her ring gear. Makes sense if you look at her Meaningful Name below.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Appeared at Wrestlemania 30 as one of the three women accompanying Triple H (the others being Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks).
* KickTheDog: When she turned on Bayley and joined the [=BFFs=].
* MeaningfulName: She was billed from Charlotte, North Carolina, though that was recently changed to 'The Queen's City'. Charlotte is the feminine form of Charles, which means royalty (and Charlotte, North Carolina was named after a queen consort).
* PartsUnknown: From the Queen's City (aka Charlotte, North Carolina).
* PetTheDog: Upon winning the NXT Woman's Championship, she thanks Natalya profusely.
** She also seems to have softened her outlook on Bayley recently.
* PowerStable [=/=] PowerTrio: The [=BFF=]s, which included Charlotte (obviously), Wrestling/SummerRae, and Wrestling/SashaBanks.
* RearrangeTheSong: Her "Recognition" theme incorporates a similar guitar riff to her original theme song, and the iconic tune of her father's theme song.
* SheFu: As a former gymnast, a lot of cartwheels and handsprings are in her matches.
* StatuesqueStunner: Stands at 5'10". That's [[Characters/WWEDivas Michelle McCool]] territory.
* TagTeam: Currently has one with Wrestling/{{Bayley}}, who had teamed with her before -- ironically, the team they are feuding with includes [[Wrestling/SashaBanks one of the people]] Charlotte once betrayed then-tag partner Bayley to ally with.
* WaifFu: Inverted. She is normally the larger opponent yet she uses this type of wrestling. What do you expect from a former gymnast?
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Wrestling/SashaBanks.
* WildCard: The resident tweener of the NXT women's division, at least since winning the title. She can easily feud with either heels or faces and can play either the heel or face in a particular situation without undergoing any real change in her character or personality.
* WorthyOpponent: Acknowledged Bayley as such after defending the title against her. When Bayley asked for another shot, Charlotte granted it and said, "Good luck, kid," with sincerity.
* WrestlingFamily: Daughter of Wrestling/RicFlair.

!!!Baron Corbin (Tom Pestock)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/baron_219.png]]
* AnimalMotifs: Seems to be wolves.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: ''Baron Corbin''.
* BadassBiker
* TheBrute
* TheBusCameBack: Having previously been a jobber, he officially debuted at Takeover 2 to squash [[TheScrappy CJ Parker]], which instantly got most of the audience on his side.
* CatchPhrase: While he doesn't talk on TV, on Twitter he lets everyone know that "you can't fight fate."
* FinishingMove: A Lifting Reverse STO he calls the End of Days.
* TheGiant
* LondonEnglandSyndrome: He's billed from Kansas City, but we haven't been told ''which'' Kansas City.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It's been hinted that he's not actually human (having called himself a 'different breed' and alluding to 'my kind' in a promo), but there's no concrete evidence either way. Given the wolf motif, some fans think that he may be a werewolf.
* MeaningfulName: 'Corbin' means 'raven-haired'.
* PhraseCatcher: He's the latest recipient of the 'X is gonna kill you' chant.
* PsychoticSmirk: After he wins.
* TheQuietOne: He doesn't talk a lot- he walks in, does his match, and usually leaves straight afterwards without so much as saying a single word.
* SquashMatch: Every one of his matches have lasted less than a minute since he returned at Takeover 2 and he's won them all. It got lampshaded on the 10/30/14 episode, when the audience counted how long the match lasted.
* TwoFirstNames: Possibly. 'Corbin' can be both a first name and a last name, and it's not clear which it is in this case.

!!!Solomon Crowe (Sam Johnston)
* PutOnABus: He debuted the hacker gimmick at a live show... and that's all we heard from him (officially) for months, though he wrestles a lot of dark matches and house shows.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Signed to NXT, trained, debuted a [[TheCracker malicious hacker]] gimmick that looked to be going somewhere... then promptly disappeared. Fans on social media are still asking questions (though it should be noted that he keeps an active social media presence and was hinting at a debut for ''months'').
* YouLookFamiliar: Sami Callihan from Combat Zone Wrestling and a handful of other indy promotions.

!!!Angelo Dawkins (Gary Gordon)
* {{Hipster}}

!!!Scott Dawson (David Charwood)
* HouseHusband: Dawson had to become the "man of the house" at a young age.

!!!Aiden English (Matt Rehwoldt)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aiden_4679.png]]
* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: With his moustache and his plain brown tights with built-in muscle belt, he looks like an old-fashioned vaudeville strongman. In June 2014, humorously and appropriately enough, he ended up tag-teaming with Simon Gotch, a vaudeville strongman wrestler, and their promos and entrance are done in the style of old black and white films. To top it all off, their tag team is called the Vaudevillains.
* BadassMustache
* BerserkButton: He did ''not'' take losing the sing-off to Cassady well.
* TheCastShowoff: His entrance theme is him singing as he walks to the ring. He's damn good at it.
* RedBaron: "The Artiste", "The Drama King".
* SoreLoser: Boy howdy.
* WrestlingDoesntPay: He's a stage actor/singer turned wrestler.

!!!Sawyer Fulton (Jacob Southwick)
* {{Expy}}: A large, young man raised in rural America that was a multiple-time collegiate wrestling award winner, recruited by Wrestling/JimRoss out of college and has the real name of "Jacob"? Sounds a bit like Wrestling/JackSwagger.
* FarmBoy

!!!Simon Gotch (John Smith)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/simongotch_bio_20140626_752.png]]
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Just look at his Twitter.
* BadassMustache
* BornInTheWrongCentury
* CatchPhrase: "Quite manly", to the point that one has to wonder if he's a bit insecure.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Oh, boy.
* InformedAbility: He calls himself a strongman.
* NonIndicativeName: His tag team is called the Vaude''villains'', but so far they haven't really done anything heelish (excepting English kicking the shit out of Big Cass because he's a sore loser). Gotch by himself seems to be just an eccentric guy who isn't one for taking things too seriously.
* [[RatedMForManly Rated QM For Quite Manly]]
* WrestlingDoesntPay: He's a wrestling strongman.
* YouLookFamiliar: Former indy wrestler Ryan Drago.

!!!Corey Graves (Matt Polinsky)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/coreygraves_9693.png]]
* {{Expy}}: Of Wrestling/CMPunk, or at least a more debauched version, anyway. His 2014 re-work of his gimmick takes pages from Paige (pun not intended) as a sort of anti-Superstar.
* IdenticalStranger: He looks somewhat like Wrestling/JeffHardy.
* JackOfAllTrades: He has a wide variety of moves that he performs. He'll brawl, high fly, use technical moves, and his finisher is a submission.
* KnuckleTattoos: That say "Stay Down!"
* LifeOfTheParty
* PutOnABus: Told to stop wrestling after receiving a serious concussion and now works backstage. His future in the ring is yet to be known.
* RealSongThemeTune: "Christcontrol" by Cancer Killing Gemini. That he has a legitimate song as his theme as opposed to an in-house production stands out from the rest of the NXT roster.
* RedBaron: "The Saviour Of Misbehaviour".
* [[WildCard Tweener]]: Maybe. His face turn wasn't really marked by any particular change in character; the only difference was that instead of picking a fight with Rollins (a face at that time), he was picking fights with the Wyatt Family. Likewise, his heel turn after that was marked principally by attacking his tag team partner at the time.
* YouLookFamiliar: Has had significant indy success under the name [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sterling_Sharpe Sterling]] [[Music/{{Tool}} James Keenan]].

!!! Hideo Itami (Kenta Kobayashi)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hideo_4375.png]]
* '''{{Badass}}''': During his introduction at ''Takeover 2'', was interrupted by The Ascension, who earlier that night had lost their Tag Titles. He ended up taking them ''both'' out- while wearing formal clothes, including a tie.
* {{Determinator}}: Has been booked like this; most of his early matches and combat encounters have seen Itami start out getting knocked around quite a bit but refusing to stay down.
* ForcedToWatch: On NXT, as his friend Funaki (yes, [[{{Jobber}} that Funaki]]) promised to come to his aid against the Ascension. The following episode ended with Itami tied in the ropes as Konnor and Viktor proceeded to beat Funaki senseless.
* MeaningfulRename: [[http://www.wwe.com/shows/wwenxt/hideo-itami-interview-26714874 He claims that it's Japanese for "Hero of Pain".]]
* RealityEnsues: Repeatedly taking on the Ascension by himself did ''not'' work out in his favour, because while Itami's very skilled, it was still two vs one. He eventually wised up and brought Finn Bálor to help him.
* YouLookFamiliar: Formerly known as KENTA, but this trope is averted, as he was introduced as KENTA and said he would be changing his ring name to Hideo Itami in tribute to one of his heroes, to mark his new beginning in WWE.

!!!Jason Jordan (Nathan Everhart)
* AlliterativeName

!!!Kalisto (Emanuel Rodriguez)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kalisto_6003.png]]
* {{Expy}}: Of ReyMysterioJr.
* ExtremityExtremist: Nearly all of his striking attacks are kicks.
* FragileSpeedster: Even within his own tag team, when compared to the more sturdily built (although still small in the Pro Wrestling world) Sin Cara.
* IHaveTheHighGround
* MaskedLuchador

!!!Konnor (Ryan Parmeter)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/konnor_6372.png]]
* ArchEnemy: The Usos, when he was in a tag team with Kenneth Cameron in 2012.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: From a guy with a rather comical affinity for rats (based on his face looking similar to them) to something more akin to a rat-humanoid demon warrior under the Ascension gimmick.
** The Ascension stable themselves underwent this about a month or two into the team's formation at FCW. Originally they were clients of Ricardo Rodriguez's father's talent agency (Ricardo would claim that Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio was this as well), before ditching Rodriguez and being repackaged into demons.
** Except Konnor and his new partner Viktor would explain in a WWE.com article interview that [[RealityEnsues they're not demons or supernatural creatures]], just guys with a certain philosophical understanding of what it takes to dominate in the ring.
* DarkIsEvil {{Expy}}: The entire Ascension gimmick is like a self-formed Ministry of Darkness [[ScreamingWarrior with screaming]].
* EvilLaugh
* FourIsDeath: The Ascension stable in the beginning of the darkness gimmick with O'Brian, [[EvilBrit Kenneth Cameron]], Tito Colon (now Epico), and Raquel Diaz (also known as [[Wrestling/EddieGuerrero Eddie]] and [[Wrestling/VickieGuerrero Vickie]]'s daughter Shaul Guerrero).
* RedBaron: The Ascension name became this for him after Kenneth Cameron was released for an incident with the police, leaving him on his own.
** Cameron had done this first- back when O'Brian was injured, Epico had been called up to team with Hunico and Primo, and Raquel Diaz went her own way. This lasted until Conor returned and they became a tag team.
* ScreamingWarrior
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Kenneth Cameron in 2012, bordering on EvilDuo.
** And again with the just returned Rick Victor in 2013.
* YouLookFamiliar: He appeared on NXT seasons 4 and 5.

!!!Sylvester Lefort (Tom La Ruffa)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sylvestorlefort_447.png]]
* ArchEnemy: Enzo Amore.
* CatchPhrase: He's primarily motivated by making "MONAY!".
* DirtyCoward
* EvilLaugh: His theme starts with one.
* ForeignWrestlingHeel: Part of his gimmick with Marcus Louis, as the Legionnaires.
* GayParee: Subverted, as he's from Nice.
* JerkAss: After losing the Hair vs Hair match to Enzo Amore, he ran off and let Marcus Louis get the penalty instead.
** He also tried to justify the above by saying that since Louis accepted the challenge to the match on Lefort's behalf, it was fair that Louis got the penalty when he hadn't competed in the match, and had tried to intervene on Lefort's behalf. The commentators rightly pointed out that if he'd really felt that way, he could have just not shown up to the match, or officially refused the challenge.
* LargeHam: And how!
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Despite looking like a monster, he's only 5'9'' and weights 170 pounds.
* TooDumbToLive: Lampshaded by Renee: He came to the Takeover 2 fallout to challenge a triumphant Enzo Amore and Big Cass to a tag team match in response to their humiliation of Marcus Louis... ''by himself''. To his credit, he very quickly realised his mistake (and managed to escape before they could actually attack him).

!!!Marcus Louis (Pierre Marceau)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marcuslouis_8043.png]]
* AxCrazy: In his match against Lefort, Louis seemed to have lost his mind, beating the hell out of Lefort while repeatedly screaming 'You did this to me!' A later promo shows that he's become a mental wreck as a result of losing his hair and being repeatedly publicly humiliated for it.
* BaldOfEvil: Not by choice, either.
* BerserkButton: His baldness, and the humiliation that followed it.
* TheBigGuy: According to his official bio, he's a former rugby player, he was a riot police officer and he also worked in a psychiatric institution.
* ButtMonkey: He accompanied Lefort to the Hair vs Hair match, which Lefort lost. However, Lefort ran away, and Enzo and Big Cass decided to give Louis the penalty instead (whether it was for trying to interfere with the match or because he was the closest thing they had to Lefort is unknown). He's now completely bald and has become the butt of many jokes.
* ForeignWrestlingHeel: With Lefort, as the Legionnaires.
* GayParee: Also subverted; he's from Bordeaux.
* [[HeroesLoveDogs Heels Love Dogs]]: If you look at his Twitter, he seems to really like dogs.
* HiddenDepths: He loves animals and philosophy.
* [[ItsPronouncedTropay It Is Pronounced "Loo-ee"]]: Just as you'd expect of a Frenchman.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: He kept teaming with Lefort for a couple of weeks after Takeover 2, even though Lefort ran away and left Louis to take the penalty for him. It ended after Lefort knocked Louis' wig off in the middle of a tag match, and Louis [[TheDogBitesBack beat the hell out of him.]]

!!!Becky Lynch (Rebecca Quin)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/becky_1853.png]]
* TheArtifact: An Irish last name like Lynch fit when she was doing her Oireland gimmick. Now, though, it doesn't really seem to match that of a moshpit girl.
* CharacterisationMarchesOn: The Oireland thing was gradually phased out within a few weeks.
* CompositeCharacter: As a face, she had elements of Sasha Banks and Charlotte when they were first faces: Like Sasha, she was a face who lost a lot of matches, got corrupted by a heel who used the loss record as a lever, and turned heel by attacking an unsuspecting person after a match. And like Charlotte, she was friends with Bayley, got an offer from the [=BFFs=] (well, former BFF in Becky's case) and attacked Bayley as her way of joining them.
* EarlyBirdCameo: She'd been appearing regularly on NXT as one of Adam Rose's Rosebuds for months before her debut.
* FaceHeelTurn: Sasha Banks convinced her to turn heel, which Becky did by attacking Bayley after seemingly coming to her aid.
* FieryRedhead: Though it is dyed to emphasize her nationality (she's naturally blonde).
* FightingIrish: She even does an Irish jig.
* GenkiGirl: Especially with her rocker gimmick.
* {{Oireland}}: Hmm, red hair? Check. Lots of green? Check. Ceili music? Check, it's her entrance theme. Jig? You bet that's a check.
** But averted when she was retooled into a rocker, wearing flannel. All that remains is the red hair.
* PungeonMaster: Follow her on Twitter. You have been warned.
* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: As Rebecca Knox, she was the manager of the Knight Dynasty (aka Saraya and Britani Knight, the latter of whom is now known as Wrestling/{{Paige}}). Since Becky debuted, many fans have been calling for her and Paige to team up.
* SpiritualSuccessor: She's already drawing {{Wrestling/Lita}} comparisons.
* YouLookFamiliar: Formerly known as Rebecca Knox in Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}.

!!!Adam Mercer (Evan Singleton)

!!!Adrian Neville (Ben Satterly)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aneville_4910.png]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He and Zayn seemed to be good friends, but Neville had no problem with dicking Zayn over to retain his title at Takeover 2. Their friendship went downhill from there.
* BigDamnHeroes: He rescued an unconscious Zayn from Titus O'Neil when after beating Zayn, O'Neil was about to severely injure him.
* TheCombatPragmatist: He's determined to win, and ''will'' pull dirty tricks to do so.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: He spins a ''lot''. This combined with his high-flying style means that rather uniquely, he wrestles with a mouthguard.
* FinishingMove: The Red Arrow (A ''corkscrew'' shooting star press. Think [[Wrestling/EvanBourne "Air Bourne"]] with a 360 spin in the middle of the flip). He later adds a "imploding" 450 splash.
* FragileSpeedster
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Unapologetically claimed this in respect to his screwing Zayn over to retain his title.
* IHaveTheHighGround: Let's just put it this way: he is known as "The Man That Gravity Forgot."
* MeaningfulName: The Red Arrow is named after [[http://www.raf.mod.uk/reds/ the RAF aerobatic display team.]]
* [[UsefulNotes/NorthEastEngland North East England:]] Born in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
* PetTheDog: When Sami declared that he'd quit if he couldn't beat Neville at Takeover 3, Neville seemed genuinely disturbed, insisting that Sami didn't need to prove anything and that he didn't need to end his career over not becoming the champion. It didn't work.
* RealMenWearPink
* RedBaron: "The Man That Gravity Forgot".
* TagTeam: With Oliver Grey, then Corey Graves.
* TakeThat: Told Zayn to his face that everyone knows that despite his good in-ring skills, he's incapable of actually winning important matches.
* {{Tweener}}: Has revealed himself as being a bit too pragmatic to be a pure babyface (although [[GoodIsBoring some would argue he's better off for it]])... but still manages to come off as a decent guy next to the extreme vanity of Tyler Breeze and the dickery of Tyson Kidd, who's a blatant {{Jerkass}} even to his own ''wife''.
* WhatTheHellHero: Infamously screwed Zayn over to retain his title at Takeover 2, a move that turned a lot of fans against him.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Pulled one in a match with Zayn when he did a Red Arrow onto Zayn, who moved just in time. Neville injured his knee, and used said injury to take Zayn by surprise, rolling him up for the win.
* YouLookFamiliar: Better known as PAC from Dragon Gate USA.
* YourMom: Hilariously invoked this trope while trading insults with Breeze, claiming that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Breeze isn't the only member of his family who likes sending selfies.]] Breeze predictably flipped his shit, and Neville beat the hell out of him.

!!!CJ Parker (Joe Robinson)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cjparker_7019.png]]
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: He interrupted the ''Takeover 2'' pre-show panel, demanding a match. Regal took this surprisingly well, granted the match without delay and gave Parker one condition: he wouldn't know who the match was against beforehand. Parker didn't care, but unfortunately for him, he should have been a tad more suspicious, because as it turned out, Regal was feeling quite vindictive: the match was against [[TheBrute Baron Corbin]], who squashed Parker like an ant.
* BerserkButton: It turns out he ''really'' didn't appreciate having his hair cut by Tyler Breeze, as in their next meeting he was out for blood.
* DreadlockWarrior: Though he's a pretty easy-going guy... at least, until Tyler Breeze ''messed'' with his dreadlocks. He also became angry and vicious after turning eco-warrior, as noted below.
* FaceHeelTurn: After the Hippie gimmick failed to connect with audiences, it was retooled into with more of an eco-warrior slant where he blamed the NXT Universe for all of Earth's issues with pollution. [[XPacHeat Some think that just made everything worse.]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent:
** At one point he started photobombing Tyler Breeze's selfies. This led to a heated feud once Breeze caught on.
** Has taken to wandering around in the crowd with arrogant signs deriding the crowd for not recycling.
* NewAgeRetroHippie: Seems to be his latest schtick.
* PartsUnknown: Billed as being from 'The Moonchild Commune'
* RedBaron:
** "The Super-Duper King Kong Mega-Mega WWE Superstar Sensation"
** "The Moonchild" since becoming a hippie.

!!!Mojo Rawley (Dean Muhtadi)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mojor_1324.png]]
* AssKicksYou: Uses a flying hip attack followed by a running butt splash as a finisher.
* BoisterousBruiser
* CatchPhrase: "I don't GET hyped, I STAY HYPED!!"
* GameBreakingInjury: What brought him to the WWE - he originally aspired to be an [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball NFL defensive lineman]] before an injury cut his career short.
* GeniusBruiser: Graduated from the University of Maryland with a master's degree in business at the age of 23.
* GenkiGuy: As he is always hyper.
* IncomingHam: His theme song.
* LargeHam: "So get hyped!!! But Mojo Rawley won't!!! Mojo doesn't GET hyped, because he STAYS hyped!!! OOOHHH YEEEAHHH!!!"
* LightningBruiser: Moves way faster than a guy who almost weighs 300 pounds should.

!!!Devin Taylor (Brittany Fetkin)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/devin_2688.png]]
* ActionGirl: Averted for now. She has appeared exclusively as a backstage interviewer. But she has wrestled on live events and said in an interview that her goal was to become a wrestler - so time will tell.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: She's half Japanese but doesn't look it.
* BrainyBrunette: Is an avid reader and is also working on a master's degree.
* NiceGirl
* SpiritualSuccessor: Model turned interviewer, hopefully becoming a wrestler, with both an athletic and education background. Seems remarkably similar to Wrestling/EveTorres - they even look similar.
* TomboyishName: Overlapping with NamesTheSame, there's a football player also called Devin Taylor.

!!!Viktor (Eric Thompson)
[[quoteright:232:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/viktor_4724.png]]
* BadassBeard: He had one in 2011, but he shaved it off a few months later.
** Grew one back again during his time off with injury in 2012-2013.
** BeardOfEvil: He's been a heel almost the whole time and now he's with the Ascension.
* DarkIsEvil: His developmental character has got increasingly darker over time, and his injured period did not stall this. Since returning, he teamed up with Conor O'Brian at NXT live events and appeared stoically at the end of one of Conor's matches on the Full Sail show itself. And since July 2013, he's officially Conor's new teammate in the Ascension. By November they've won the tag team titles and now their names have been made shorter and modified through XtremeKoolLetterz to actually fit the gimmick.
* ShoutOut:His FinishingMove is apparently called the [[Franchise/StreetFighter Psycho Crusher]].
** Or at least used to be back in the indies as Apocalypse/APOC. In FCW it was called the [[OhCanada Canadian Lifter]], and it hasn't seen airtime on NXT.
* YouLookFamiliar: Previously known as Rick Victor in FCW.

!!! [[Wrestling/ElGenerico Sami Zayn]] (Rami Sebei)
