Lists the various Wrestling/{{WWE}} wrestlers who are currently part of the Wrestling/{{WWE NXT}} Developmental System. Please limit associated tropes to that wrestler's time in WWE.
%% When a wrestler gets called up to the main roster; Raw or Smackdown, remove them from here and add them to the respective character pages: [[Characters/WWEReality Reality Era]], [[Characters/WWEDivas Divas]], or [[Character/WWETagTeams Tag Teams]].
%% Same goes if a talent gets released prior to making it to the main roster—the "remove them" part, anyway.

!!!Enzo Amore (Eric Arndt)
* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Carmella, mainly because she's obviously not interested in him at all and he refuses to take the hint. [[AbortedArc The subplot eventually got dropped.]]
* ArchEnemy: It was Sylvester Lefort, but is now Blake and Murphy.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: One might think that while he was wheelchair-bound, he couldn't do anyone any damage... and yet he was perfectly capable of running over Aiden English's foot.
* BigDamnHeroes: Abruptly [[ returned]] after recovering from an injury to come to Big Cass' aid against the Legionnaires.
* BoastfulRap: Pretty much the entirety of his current theme, [[ "SAWFT Is a Sin"]].
* 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 - although this particular phrase has been handed off to Cass, probably because his delivery of it is almost a meme in itself.
** "How you doin'?"
** "My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bona fide 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'?"
*** With Carmella accompanying them, he adds "And this right here? This is Carmella, and she's hot as hell. And you can't. Teach. That." between Cass' introduction and the "Bada boom".
* ChewToy: Enzo's role in tag matches with Big Cass is to take all of the offence from the opponents, and you can be sure that if Enzo & Cass are losing, it's Enzo taking the fall. Fans have begun joking that Enzo's finishing move is "Tag in Big Cass" because of this.
* {{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.
* EpicFail: His actual attempts to wrestle. He has no real moveset, and his offense mostly consists of "get thrown at people by Cass and then run away"... although he has improved marginally to the point where Cass no longer does ''all'' the work.
* {{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.
* FinishingMove: [[MemeticMutation Famous in internet circles]] his finishing move on TheOtherWiki was once listed as "Tag in Cass".
* HiddenDepths: In one promo during the period when his leg was broken, he rants 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.
* HotbloodedSideburns: Recently started sporting huge blond muttonchops.
* 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 Komen 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 been pretty sexist in vignettes, though it should be noted that Big Cass immediately called him out for it and Enzo's been portrayed as an idiot every time he does something sexist.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: And you can't. Teach. That.
* 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 once claimed 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 also refused to accept that Carmella is not interested in him at all, despite all his advances being rebuffed (sometimes violently).
* TruthInTelevision: Actually knew Colin Cassady from his teenage years; they first met on a basketball court in New York City.

!!! Asuka (Kanako Urai)
* GenkiGirl: Gave off the impression of one during her debut segment, when she was excitedly jumping around and yelling "DREAM COME TRUE" in adorably broken English. However, her deathly smile at Emma and Dana Brooke indicates that it's an act to mess with her opponents.
* SlasherSmile: [[ Revealed to possess an incredibly effective one]]. The smile ''alone'' produced an OhCrap reaction from Dana Brooke and Emma during her debut.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Her introductory promo and first entrance had her wearing a noh mask, carried over from her Kana persona in Japan.

!!! [[Wrestling/FergalDevitt Finn Bálor]] (Fergal Devitt)

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

!!! Blake (Cory Weston)
* BashBrothers: With Murphy.
* {{Cowboy}}: From San Antonio, Texas at that.
* LastNameBasis: He and Murphy have started being announced to the ring this way since winning the tag straps.
* LevelGrinding: Believe it or not, their progress as a jobber tag team saw them quietly edge ever closer to victory as time went on before they finally broke through and became more effective.
* RealMenWearPink: And put their hair in pigtails.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Buddy Murphy, before they became the Tag Team Champions.
* TookALevelInBadass: They went from jobbers to the Tag Team Champions in ''two weeks''.
* WildCard: He and Murphy both won and defended the tag titles before making anything close to a statement either way on the face and heel scale.
* TheWorfBarrage: How many of their matches came across when they were jobbers. They could hang with the Lucha Dragons and the Vaudevillains in the ring, they just could never put them down for three.

!!! Alexa Bliss (Alexis Kaufman)
* ArchEnemy: It was previously Sasha Banks, but now seems to be Carmella.
* BadassAdorable: When she's in her fairy-like face gimmick.
* BareYourMidriff: As is the norm for women's wrestling.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She may be tiny, cute and sparkly, but don't take her lightly.
** In [[ 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 face entrance is meant to evoke this.
* CatchPhrase: "Bliss your heart". Doubles as StealthInsult - it's a slight variation of 'bless your heart', which can be a compliment, but people in the American South are pretty used to hearing "bless your heart" as an insult. [[ See here for a pretty good explanation.]]
* 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.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: Part of her EvilCostumeSwitch included applying more and darker eyeshadow and eyeliner. She's already very good at making evil faces, but the makeup accentuates it.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: As a face, her hair had blue tips. As a heel, she's got red tips.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: Oh my, yes. Her ring gear is adorned with sparkles and she blows a stream of glitter to the fans.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: After turning heel, she went from the fairy outfit (which had a long-sleeved blouse and shorts) to something resembling Blake and Murphy's outfit: red with white and black highlights (including the claw marking design) and a [[EvilisSexy whole lot more exposed skin]] on both the top and the bottom (halter-top and almost a bikini).
* FaceHeelTurn: At Unstoppable, when she helped Blake and Murphy.
* {{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).
** After turning heel she got a new foil in Blue Pants, whom The Vaudevillains recruited as their backup to Bliss' dirty tactics.
* GirlySkirtTwirl: Part of her entrance as a face.
* 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.
* ItsPersonal: She became set on beating the crap out of Sasha Banks for all the painful losses Sasha inflicted on her in the past. She eventually did win a match by countout, but lost the title match.
* KidAppealCharacter: In the same vein as Rey Mysterio. She's short, colourful and also adorable.
** Subverted when she turned heel at Unstoppable, morphing into an AlphaBitch character who cheats to help Blake & Murphy win.
* LadyInRed: After turning heel, she switched to a red outfit and dyed the tips of her hair red.
* 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.
* PurpleIsPowerful: She switched from her usual blue ring gear to a new set that's purple, but otherwise identical after returning in March 2015.
* PutOnABus: After Sasha Banks accidentally injured her nose, in November 2014. TheBusCameBack in March 2015.
* SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains: She didn't only drop her [[NiceGuy nice girl]] persona when she turned heel, she also left behind several square feet of clothing.
* 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: As a face, all her outfits had varying shades of blue on them, as did her hair.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: After she teamed up with Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy.
* 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. She dyed it red after turning heel.

!!!Tyler Breeze (Mattias Clement)
* ArchEnemy: For a period, it was Hideo Itami.
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* BreakThemByTalking: Did this in brutal fashion to Marcus Louis before beating him in one move.
* 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.
* DavidVersusGoliath: He actually has a great record against the [[TheGiant bigger wrestlers]] in NXT, sometimes [[SquashMatch squashing them flat]], it's only when a guy similar in build that he has problems.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: "Sings" the lyrics to "#Mmmgorgeous", which basically amounts to Tyler talking about how really really really ridiculously good looking he is.
* [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Narcissistic Heels Love Their Mamas]]: He ''flipped'' when Adrian Neville made a YourMom joke.
* {{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 is entirely about how good-looking he is.
* TheFightingNarcissist
* GorgeousGeorge
* GroinAttack: Accidentally low-blowed Sami Zayn during their match at Takeover, when he raised his hands to protect his face and in the process hit Zayn (who was trying to kick him) in the balls.
* 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.
* PetTheDog: The only heel to congratulate Sami Zayn on finally winning the NXT title.
* PrettyInMink: It's become something of a RunningGag that all of his clothes are made out of the fur of extremely exotic animals.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gave a very nasty one to Marcus Louis that had a very big hand in Louis' mental breakdown.
* 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.
* SoreLoser: For all he pretended to not care about Hideo Itami beating him in the first round of the #1 Contenders' Tournament, he later attacked Itami in an interview, furiously berating him for winning only to lose to Finn Balor.
* VanityIsFeminine: He loves to take selfies of himself, something teenage girls are known for. He's also obsessed with his appearance so [[DesignatedVillain therefore we must hate him.]]
* WrestlingDoesntPay: He's a model turned wrestler.
* YouLookFamiliar: Oh hey there, Mike Dalton.

!!!Dana Brooke (Ashley Sebera)
* AlphaBitch
* AmazonianBeauty: She's a bodybuilder as well as being a wrestler.
* BlondesAreEvil
* JerkAss
* TheFightingNarcissist: She seems a little ''too'' obsessed with her body.
* OddFriendship: With Emma, of all people.
* RedBaron: The "Killa Barbie" or "The Total Diva".
* SmugSnake

!!!Carmella (Leah Van Dale)
* ArchEnemy: Alexa Bliss.
* 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 at Enzo's stomach.
* BigApplesauce
* BoisterousBruiser
* BorrowedCatchphrase: Has started borrowing "How you doin'?" from the Realest Guys, since she's the third member of their stable.
* ButNotTooWhite: Look at that tan!
* CatchPhrase: "Bada bing, hottest chick in the ring". (Adapted, of course, from Enzo's "Bada boom! Realest guys in the room!")
* 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 recognized 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.
* DistaffCounterpart: To Enzo and Cass.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy tried to get her to leave the Realest Guys by buying her jewellery and generally sucking up to her. It seemed to be working until they brutally attacked the Realest Guys backstage in front of her, and then later interfered in her match, making her lose.
* EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry: Of the hoop earrings and golden necklace variety.
* HeelFaceTurn: Went from the heelish companion of the Realest Guys to a wholly supportive member of their trio.
** FaceHeelTurn: Teased when Blake and Murphy tried to buy her loyalty with presents. It didn't work.
* 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.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Enzo and Cass criticised her for accepting presents from their rivals, Blake and Murphy. Carmella's response was to point out that Blake and Murphy were treating her better than Enzo and Cass were. Given that Enzo frequently refused to stop hitting on her even when she clearly told him she wasn't interested, she wasn't wrong.
* MulticoloredHair: Honey blonde mixed with brown.
* PhraseCatcher: "And this right here? This is Carmella, and she's hot as hell. And you can't. Teach. That."
* RedBaron: "The Princess of Staten Island".
* TheRival: An as-of-yet-unnamed girl that is simply known as [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep "Blue Pants"]] (Leva Bates, from Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}). What ''had'' been an introductory match with what was supposed to be a {{Jobber}} ended up becoming a short series that actually saw Carmella come off worse most recently.
** Replaced by Alexa Bliss now, after Bliss' heel turn at Unstoppable.
* TokenEvilTeammate: To Enzo and Cass. They're friendly and endearing to fans and other faces even in their arrogance, while she's dismissive towards everyone except maybe Cass, gets jeered for it on NXT, and has played the heel role in recent matches against other ladies. With Enzo and Cass beginning to be pushed as serious contenders, she's now begun to change her tune, becoming more fan friendly and showing support for both of them.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Enzo and Big Cass.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Enzo and Cass called in a favor from her at her salon during their rivalry with the Legionnaires. The resulting fallout from her involvement ended with her in an NXT ring, the Legionnaires breaking up, and Marcus Louis losing his hair ''and'' his mind.
* 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)
* BlatantLies: He and Enzo made a number of videos about them training Carmella and getting her a tryout, all of which ended with Enzo looking like an idiot. Cass always promised to not post them online (and always did). It took Enzo a while to catch on, but he got there in the end.
* TheBrute [=/=] TheBigGuy
* CatchPhrase: "How you doin'?" and "SAWFT."
** "I'm gonna..." *shakes like he can't get the word out* "SPELL IT OUT FOR YA!"
* 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." Although, in a subversion of the usual trope, he's far and away the better wrestler of his pairing with Enzo, for what that's worth.
* 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
* NoSell: Not so much in singles matches, but when he's teaming with Enzo, Cass will pull this.
* 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 to Enzo.
* PhraseCatcher: "And this right here? This is Big Cass. And 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.
** TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Enzo and Carmella.

!!!Baron Corbin (Tom Pestock)
* AnimalMotifs: 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: On Twitter, and in his promo, it's "You can't fight fate" and "All hail".
* FinishingMove: A Lifting Reverse STO he calls the End of Days.
* TheGiant: He's 6'8.
* LondonEnglandSyndrome: He's billed from Kansas City, but we haven't been told ''which'' Kansas City. For all we know he could be from the Kansas City ''border''.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It's been hinted that he's not actually human (having called himself a 'different breed' and alluded 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'.
* MightyGlacier: When he's not having a squash match, he moves slowly, but he hits his opponents ''hard''.
* MysteriousPast: According to the commentators, nobody knows anything about him, and even Regal couldn't— or wouldn't— say. Subverted once Pestock's real life football past was incorporated into his character upon his heel turn.
* PhraseCatcher: He's one of the latest recipients 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. This changed when Bull Dempsey started to annoy him.
** Since joining the commentary team, Corey Graves has claimed that they hang around the same circles, and while Corbin doesn't say much, when he does speak, people pay attention.
* TheRival: Bull Dempsey, though Corbin seems to view Dempsey as less of a rival and more of a persistent annoyance.
** With Bull demoted to Jobber status, {{Wrestling/Rhyno}} seems to have taken his place as Corbin's rival.
* SquashMatch: Most of his matches have lasted less than a minute since he returned at Takeover 2 and he's won them all (excepting his match with Adrian Neville). As of 10/30/14's episode, the audience counts how long the matches go for.
* TwoFirstNames: Possibly. 'Corbin' can be both a first name and a last name, and it's not clear which it is in this case.

!!!Apollo Crews (Sesugh Uhaa)

* {{Adorkable}}: He doesn't seem to do it much anymore, but during debut on NXT Takeover Brooklyn, [[ he was just precious.]]
* CelebrityResemblance: Uhaa's been mistaken a few times for Terry Crews, hence the ring name.
* LightningBruiser: He's 6 foot 1 and weighs 240 pounds, also has a noticeably thick upper body, but he moves ''scarily'' fast for someone his size. Best shown with his FinishingMove--he uses a gorilla press drop to show his strength followed by a combination of moonsaults and shooting star presses to show his agility. Keep in mind, this is a ''standing'' moonsault.
* ShoutOut: The name is a shoutout to [[Film/{{Rocky}} Apollo Creed]] and Terry Crews, the latter of which Uhaa very closely resembles.
* YouLookFamiliar: He previously worked in Wrestling/DragonGate under the ring name Uhaa Nation.

!!!Solomon Crowe (Sam Johnston)
* AnimalMotifs: Crows, [[CaptainObvious obviously.]]
** He's described himself as a honey badger/ratel.
* AnimeHair: [[ His initial hairdo]] is best described as... a [[Anime/DragonBall Vegeta]] cosplay gone horribly wrong.
* BreakingTheFourthWall[=/=]InterfaceScrew: Whenever he hacks the show, he doesn't just hack the Titantron, he hacks the show itself.
* CatchPhrase: "This is not a test" comes up a lot in his videos.
** (At the end of a promo or match) "We now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast/programming."
* TheCracker
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: There's something indeterminately... ''off'' about Solomon Crowe. The hair, the way he appears to be trying to ram the microphone into his own skull during promos, the unorthodox style and finishing move... oh, and the fact that he screws around with NXT's display setups for kicks and giggles.
* HollywoodHacking
* PutOnABus: He debuted the hacker gimmick at a live show... and that's all we heard from him (officially) for months, though he wrestled a lot of dark matches and house shows.
** TheBusCameBack: He finally debuted the week after Takeover 4.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Signed to NXT, trained, debuted a [[TheCracker malicious hacker]] gimmick that looked to be going somewhere... then promptly disappeared, reappearing over a year later.
* YouLookFamiliar: Sami Callihan from Combat Zone Wrestling and a handful of other indy promotions.

!!!Angelo Dawkins (Gary Gordon)
* {{Hipster}}: Formerly. This was dropped in favor of an amateur wrestling gimmick when he started teaming with Sawyer Fulton.

!!!Scott Dawson (David Charwood)
* HouseHusband: Dawson had to become the "man of the house" at a young age.
* DeepSouth:
* TookALevelInBadass: After he formed the Mechanics with Dash Wilder, the duo were mainly used as enhancement talent until the both took a huge leap in the mentioned trope and scored their first victory over the incredibly over Enzo and Cass.

!!!Bull Dempsey (James Smith)
* {{Acrofatic}}: After Unstoppable, it's become less acro and more fatic. This led to his "[=BullFit=]" gimmick and HeelFaceTurn.
* AnimalMotif: BULL! Though in his case it's not done in an overt, cartoonish manner like an El Torito.
* AnythingYouCanDoICanDoBetter: Engaged in a non-verbal case of this with Baron Corbin, each trying to outdo the other in the art of swiftly dominating {{jobber}} opponents. Culminated in a no-DQ match with Corbin at NXT Takeover: Rival, which he came out on the losing end of.
** Has been doing a minor one recently when sparring against Tyler Breeze, imitating Breeze's signature method of lying on the top ropes.
* AscendedMeme: When the show began airing vignettes concerning his attempts to lose weight, the internet promptly dubbed them "[=BullFit=] as a play on the "Bullshit!" chants that usually accompany his entrance. This was promptly picked up on, and when he reappeared at the Brooklyn show, his tights actually said "[=BullFit=]" on the back.
* BigEater: And it's become a serious issue for him, at least in storyline.
* BrooklynRage: Billed from Brooklyn, but he's usually quite a good-tempered guy.
* TheBrute: Supposedly an unstoppable freight-train with no need for tactics as a heel.
* HeelFaceTurn: After his weight problems began to affect his ring performances, he resolved to lose weight and become a nicer person with his "BullFit" exercise routine. So far it's working.
* IHaveTheHighGround: Though he usually just does diving headbutts.
* IncomingHam: BULL! BULL! BULL!
* LastOfHisKind: Calls himself the [[RedBaron Last of a Dying Breed]] in reference to old school, smash-mouth style wrestlers.
* PhraseCatcher: After Bull's HeelFaceTurn with Bullfit, the audience would start chanting things like "Bullfit's working" or, usually in a match with Tyler Breeze, "Bull is Gorgeous!"
* TheRival: To Baron Corbin, at first. After several consecutive losses, though, now he's starting to enter GoddamnedBats territory.
* SquashMatch: The buildup to his eventual first battle with Corbin consisted of the two trying to top each other at this.

!!!Tye Dillinger (Ronnie Arneil)
* CatchPhrase: "TEN!!"
* SmallNameBigEgo: According to his bio, Dillinger claim's that if you wanted to be considered the best one has to defeat him...which if one remembers his win/loss ratio in the past, [[BoisterousWeakling is not a very difficult thing to do.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: After being re-packaged with the "Perfect 10" gimmick.

!!!Aiden English (Matt Rehwoldt)
* ArchEnemy: The Lucha Dragons.
* 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.
* EvilLaugh
* HeroicSacrifice: In the Vaudevillains/Lucha Dragons match at Takeover 3, English pushed Gotch out of the way when the Lucha Dragons did a double suicide dive. It looked like a SenselessSacrifice at first because Gotch got pinned within minutes, but it turned out to be a case of DangerouslyGenreSavvy because Gotch wasn't the legal man, a fact that the Vaudevillains successfully used to get a rematch.
* PutOnABus: The Vaudevillains disappeared from the tag team scene for several months, and then returned after Unstoppable.
* 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.
** He and Angelo Dawkins could be seen as one to [[Wrestling/BrockLesnar the Minnesota]] [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Stretching Crew]], as they have a similar aesthetic and have adopted an amateur wrestling gimmick.
* FarmBoy

!!!Chad Gable (Chas Betts)
* AmbiguouslyGay: His pursuit of Jason Jordan as a tag team partner, and his insistence on Jordan saying his catchphrase carries more than a few undertones.
** StalkerWithACrush: Some have seen his aforementioned pursuit of Jordan as this.
* CatchPhrase: "Ready, willing, and Gable".
* {{Expy}}: Of KurtAngle. He's a short, highly skilled amateur wrestler (and Olympic competitor) who wrestles in a singlet, and backstage is arrogant but with an air of goofiness about him.
* IncrediblyLamePun: His CatchPhrase, as seen above.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Stands at only 5'7, but grapples and tosses around foes with ease.

!!!Simon Gotch (John Smith)
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Just look at his Twitter.
* ArchEnemy: The Lucha Dragons.
* BadassMustache: And don't you forget it.
* 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, although he's actually on the smaller-to-average side as far as wrestler size goes.
* 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)
* CareerEndingInjury: Told to stop wrestling after receiving two serious concussions and now works backstage. He revealed at ''NXT TakeOver: R Evolution'' that he is officially retiring from wrestling and is instead joining the NXT Announce Team.
* CatchPhrase: "Stay down."
* DeadpanSnarker: Most notably since he joined the commentary team, though some in the know have known of his snarkery through Twitter for a lot longer.
* {{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
* 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.
* ReallyGetsAround: Heavily implied.
* 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 [[ Sterling]] [[Music/{{Tool}} James Keenan]].

!!![[Wrestling/KentaKobayashi Hideo Itami]] (Kenta Kobayashi)

!!!Wrestling/SamoaJoe (Nuufolau Joel Seanoa)

!!!Jason Jordan (Nathan Everhart)
* AlliterativeName
* {{Expy}}: Of Shelton Benjamin.
* RealityEnsues: After Tye Dillinger refused to tag him in not once, but three times during a match, Jordan got pissed off and left Dillinger to get hammered by the Lucha Dragons.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Having ditched former tag partner Tye Dillinger, he began a story line where he teamed with various WWE Superstars in an attempt to find a better tag partner. He eventually found one in Chad Gable.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: See RealityEnsues.
* TookALevelInBadass: After starting his team with Chad Gable, they've started winning and dominating opponents, with Jordan breaking out more of his amateur wrestling background.

!!!Sylvester Lefort (Tom La Ruffa)
* 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, [[DirtyCoward he ran off and let Marcus Louis get the penalty instead.]]
* LargeHam: And how!
* NeverMyFault: He tried to justify leaving Louis to get Lefort's penalty by saying that since Louis accepted the challenge to the match on Lefort's behalf, it was fair that Louis got the penalty, even though 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.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Despite looking like a monster, he's only 5'9'' and weights 170 pounds. Averted, though, in that despite his muscular frame he's never won a match.
* PutOnABus: Hasn't been seen since Louis started losing his mind.
* TheBusCameBack: Returned after Unstoppable as Jason Jordan's new tag partner, though it didn't work out.
* 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)
* 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.
* [[BadassGay Badass]] [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Gay]]: Back in the training center he cut a promo ([[ seen here]] but probably NSFW) to this effect. Whether he's still gay is unknown, but he was old friends and workout partners with [=LeFort=] (who had an obsession with his clients being attractive).
* 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.
* HumiliationConga: First, his teammate lost a Hair vs Hair match and fled the scene, leaving Louis to get beaten up by the Realest Guys, who then proceeded to throw a bucket of hair-removal cream on him. Then they dragged him out into the ring later on and publicly exposed his bald head so the crowd could mock him. Then he starts wearing a wig, gets mocked for that, and finally turns on Lefort when he knocks the wig off during a match. Then a few weeks later, Tyler Breeze publicly insults and humiliates him and beats him with one move. After that, Louis walked out the front doors of Full Sail and hasn't been seen since.
* [[ItsPronouncedTropay It Is Pronounced "Loo-ee"]]: Just as you'd expect of a Frenchman.
* PutOnABus: Went missing after Tyler Breeze destroyed his sanity. It was hinted that he was stalking Breeze from afar, but nothing's come of it.
** TheBusCameBack: Returned after Unstoppable in a tag match, though not with Lefort.
* SanitySlippage: Louis did ''not'' react well to getting a bucket of hair-removal cream thrown on him.
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Has been seen watching Tyler Breeze from afar before Breeze's matches.
* 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.]]

!!!Murphy (Matthew Adams)
* BashBrothers: With Blake.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: After Carmella spurned his and Blake's advances and slapped Alexa Bliss, Blake and Murphy realised that continuing to try to get Carmella on their side would be pointless, and instead teamed up with Alexa to give Enzo, Cass and Carmella hell. It worked.
* LandDownUnder: From Melbourne. (One has to wonder how an Australian wound up with a name [or nickname] like Buddy, though.)
* LastNameBasis: Blake and Murphy have started being billed this way ever since winning the Tag Team Titles.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Wesley Blake, before the following trope kicked in…
* TookALevelInBadass: He and Blake went from jobbers to the Tag Team Champions in ''two weeks''.
** LevelGrinding: A very low-key version preceded their seemingly sudden level-up, as they went from just straight jobbers to TheWorfBarrage-style competitive jobbers to breaking through the plateau and actually beating other teams.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Alexa and Wesley Blake.
* WildCard: By the time they began to solidify themselves as either faces or heels, Blake and Murphy were already solidified as the tag champs.
* TheWorfBarrage: For while Murphy and Blake got to the point where they could hang with a top NXT tag team and give good matches but could never actually get the job done. Then 2015 happened.

!!![[Wrestling/KevinSteen Kevin Owens]] (Kevin Steen)

!!!Mojo Rawley (Dean Muhtadi)
* 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.
* PutOnABus: Was out for a while from September 2014 to June 2015 as a result of a shoulder injury.
** HesBack: He returned as a tag partner for none other than Wrestling/ZackRyder.

!!!Elias Sampson (Logan Shulo)
* TheDrifter: His current gimmick.

!!!Devin Taylor (Brittany Fetkin)
* 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.
* DullSurprise: She rarely if ever shows any real emotion.
* NiceGirl
* SitcomArchnemesis: Seems to have one in Dana Brooke. OnceAnEpisode, Dana pats her head condescendingly, and Devin always reacts with a wordless expression that suggests that she would like nothing better than to dropkick Dana in the throat.
* 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.

!!! Dash Wilder (Steven Walters)
* FlawExploitation: His bio states he had to do this in order to survive up in the mountains of his hometown.
* TookALevelInBadass: Both he and Dawson went through this and both went from barely being on TV let alone winning a match to after an upset victory over Enzo and Cass, becoming a major threat to the Tag Division.

!!! Wrestling/SamiZayn (Rami Sebei)
