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 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]] (for male singles wrestlers), [[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.


!!NXT Television roster
Contains Superstars who have made their official on-screen debut on NXT.

!!!Singles Wrestlers

[[folder:Andrade "Cien" Almas]]
!!! Andrade 'Cien' Almas (Manny Andrade)
* AlliterativeName: His 'proper' ring name, Andrade Almas.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: "Cien Almas" is Spanish for "Hundred Souls." Given that his ''former'' ring name was ''La Sombra'' (The Shadow)... [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast make of that what you will.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: After he and Cedric Alexander lost in the first round of the 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, Almas viciously attacked Cedric out of frustration and anger due to his losing streak and the crowd's consistent hostile reaction to him.
* MaskedLuchador: Formerly. And unlike some of his ilk that unmask, his past as a luchador was referenced and discussed on commentary.
* NiceHat: Wears a trilby down the ramp for his entrance.
* RedBaron: "El Idolo", or "The Idol."
** OlderThanTheyThink: Almas wasn't the first guy in a WWE developmental program to call himself "The Idol." [[Wrestling/DamienSandow A guy called Aaron Stevens]] did it back in the early 2000s.
* YouAreNumberSix: Plus BilingualBonus. 'Cien' is Spanish for 100.
* WorthyOpponent: After Cedric Alexander defeated him, Almas congratulated him and shook his hand. The next episode they were one of the first teams announced for the 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Unfortunately this respect didn't last long, as noted above.

[[folder:Aleister Black]]
!!! Aleister Black (Thomas Budgen)
* BadassBeard: It definitely is impressive.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite being a dark, brooding character who incorporates a lot of occult symbols into his appearance, he describes himself as being neither saint nor sinner, just someone who maintains the balance.
* DeathGlare: Black is fond of giving them to the camera.
* 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.
* HollywoodSatanism: Averted. Black isn't your usual screaming fanatic and takes Satanism very seriously.
** ActorSharedBackground: Tom Bugden is actually a Laveyan Satanist.
* [[IKnowKarate I Know Kickboxing]]: He is a trained martial artist who incorporates a lot of kickboxing moves into his arsenal.
* KnuckleTattoos: "Anti Hero".
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: ''Aleister Black'' definitely has some foreboding feeling to it
* TattooAsCharacterType: Black's body is covered with various religious and occult symbols, indicating his interest in the supernatural.

[[folder:Wesley Blake]]
!!! Wesley Blake (Cory Weston)
* BashBrothers: With Murphy until they went on a losing streak and broke up.
* {{Cowboy}}: From San Antonio, Texas at that.
* FunWithAcronyms: The sometimes-used team name of '''B'''lake-'''A'''lexa-'''M'''urphy '''F'''actor. Ironically this could have still fit anyway as '''Blake''' '''''A'''nd'' '''M'''urphy '''F'''actor if Alexa weren't involved.
* LastNameBasis: He and Murphy started being announced to the ring this way since winning the tag straps up until they split. His canonical first name Wesley was almost never used during this time.
* 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 they also 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''.
* TookALevelInJerkass: After separating from Murphy and Bliss (the latter of whom was drafted to the Smackdown roster) and embarking on a singles career he suddenly became a ''lot'' more arrogant. And given the type of personalities BAMF had, this is saying quite a bit.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Murphy and Alexa Bliss.
* 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.

[[folder:Angelo Dawkins]]
!!! Angelo Dawkins (Gary Gordon)
* CavalierCompetitor: Despite always jobbing, he calmly waits for the next opportunity. His 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.

[[folder:Sawyer Fulton]]
!!! Sawyer Fulton (Jacob Southwick)
* TheBrute: As the tallest and largest member of Wrestling/{{Sanity}}, he fills this role.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Slowly got there as his frustration grew with continuously jobbing alongside a tag team partner (Angelo Dawkins) who seemed to be unflappable about it.
** '''''Full tilt''''' with his reappearance as a member of the sAnitY faction.
* DreadlockWarrior: As a member of Wrestling/{{Sanity}}.
* {{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've been seen as one to [[Wrestling/BrockLesnar the Minnesota]] [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Stretching Crew]], as they had a similar aesthetic and adopted an amateur wrestling gimmick.
** His newer appearance brings [[Wrestling/TheWyattFamily Braun Strowman]] to mind.
* FarmBoy: Originally.
* NoDoubtTheYearsHaveChangedMe: Well, more like ''months'', but just look at him now in the picture to the right as a member of Wrestling/{{Sanity}} [[ 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 Wrestling/{{Sanity}} faction.
* ThePeteBest:[[invoked]] May be set up to be this for Wrestling/{{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.

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

[[folder:No Way Jose]]
!!! No Way Jose (Levis Valenzuela Jr.)
* AfroAsskicker: His hair is reaching almost [[Wrestling/CarlitoColon Carlito]] levels of voluminous.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's fun-loving guy, but make no mistake, he can and will bring the fight. Austin Aries found this out the hard way.
* DanceBattler: Incorporates several dance moves into his offense.
* {{Expy}}: Initially drew Wrestling/{{Fandango}} comparisons due to his salsa dancing gimmick... except you find out later that his gimmick wasn't meant so much to be (exclusively) a dancer as a partygoing reveler. In that way, his gimmick edges much closer to that of Wrestling/AdamRose - minus the weird cadre of costumed followers.
* FunPersonified: Is always smiling, dancing, and having a good time.
* [[LifeOfTheParty Life of the Fiesta:]] His ring gear even says "Fiesta" on it.
* LightningBruiser: He's very agile and fluid, as one would expect of a DanceBattler. He's also 245 pounds.
* MegatonPunch: Employs something of a pop-up KO punch in his arsenal. Think [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Cesaro]] [[XMeetsY meets]] Wrestling/BigShow.

[[folder:Oney Lorcan]]
!!! Oney Lorcan (Christopher Girard)
* BloodKnight: He loves a good fight.
* BullyHunter: Went after Andrade 'Cien' Almas for pushing around Hoho Lun in the gym.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He looks scary and is a brutal fighter but he's actually cast as a good guy at heart, standing up for people that get picked on in the locker room.
* FaceOfAThug: Has one of the nastiest looking scowls in WWE.
* GlassCannon: Relatively small in stature but can hit very hard.
* {{Kiai}}: Usually followed with a ''vicious'' elbow.

[[folder:Drew [=McIntyre=]]]
!!! Wrestling/DrewMcIntyre (Drew Galloway)


[[folder:Buddy Murphy]]
!!! Buddy Murphy (Matthew Adams)
* BashBrothers: With Blake, until their break-up.
* FunWithAcronyms: The sometimes-used team name of '''B'''lake-'''A'''lexa-'''M'''urphy '''F'''actor. Ironically this could have still fit anyway as '''Blake''' '''''A'''nd'' '''M'''urphy '''F'''actor if Alexa weren't involved.
* LandDownUnder: From Melbourne. (One has to wonder how an Australian wound up with a name [or nickname] like Buddy, though.)
* LastNameBasis: Blake and Murphy started being billed this way ever since winning the Tag Team Titles up until they split. His canonical first name Buddy was almost never used in that time.
* MeaningfulName: Turns out, Buddy is already the nickname of an Australian sports star, namely footballer Lance "Buddy" Franklin, whereas Murphy is Adams' middle name in real life.
* 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 Wesley Blake and Alexa Bliss.
* WildCard: By the time they began to solidify themselves as 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.

[[folder:Kassius Ohno]]
!!![[Wrestling/ChrisHero Kassius Ohno]] (Chris Spradlin)

[[folder:Bobby Roode]]
!!! Wrestling/BobbyRoode (Robert Roode)

[[folder:Roderick Strong]]
!!! Wrestling/RoderickStrong (Christopher Lindsey)

!!!Women's Division

!!! Aliyah (Nhooph Al-Areebi)
* 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.

!!! [[Wrestling/KanakoUrai Asuka]] (Kanako Urai)

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

[[folder:Billie Kay]]
!!! Wrestling/BillieKay (Jessica [=McKay=])

[[folder:Ember Moon]]
!!! Ember Moon (Adrienne Reese)
* 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.]]

[[folder:Liv Morgan]]
!!! Liv Morgan (Gionna Daddio)
* 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.

[[folder:Ruby Riot]]
!!! Ruby Riot (Dori Prange)
* BareYourMidriff: As is typical.
* BigDamnHeroes: Made her debut by rushing to Tye Dillinger, Roderick Strong, and No Way Jose's aid as they were being assaulted by Wrestling/{{Sanity}}, which finally gave the three someone who could deal with Nikki Cross.
* BoyishShortHair: Only woman on the roster with short hair.

[[folder:Mandy Rose]]
!!! Mandy Rose (Amanda Saccomanno)
* 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.]]
* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: Mandy was the female runner-up on the 2015 version of ''Tough Enough''. The winner, Sara Lee, was released before she could appear on TV.

[[folder:Peyton Royce]]
!!! Peyton Royce (Cassie [=McIntosh=])
* AmazonianBeauty: Mostly in the abs.
* BetaBitch: To Billie Kay.
* DanceBattler: Her graceful movements give away that she was a dancer before becoming a wrestler.
* 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.
* WholeCostumeReference: The overall motif seems to be a reference of some portrayals of [[ComicBook/{{Batman}} Poison Ivy.]]

!!!Tag Teams and Stables

[[folder:The Authors of Pain]]
!!!As a Team
[[caption-width-right:350:L-R: Akam, Paul Ellering, and Rezar]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: They 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]].
* 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]]. Given that the Legion of Doom's former manager is now guiding the Authors, this is most likely on purpose.
* 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.

!!! Akam (Sunny Dhinsa)
* 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.
* TattooedCrook: Has Polynesian ink on his right upper arm and chest.

!!! Rezar (Gzim Selmani)
* LightningBruiser: A 330-pound monster whose tandem offense with Akam is surprisingly fast and appropriately painful.

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

!!! Tommaso Ciampa (Tommaso Whitney)
* 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.)

!!! Johnny Gargano (John Anthony Nichols)
* 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.

* LargeHam: While Tucker can also be quite energetic, Dozovic is larger than life in every possible way.

!!! Tucker Knight (Levi Cooper)

!!! [[Wrestling/{{Sanity}} Killian Dain (Damian Mackle)]]

!!! [[Wrestling/{{Sanity}} Alexander Wolfe (Axel Tischer)]]

!!! [[Wrestling/{{Sanity}} Eric Young (Jeremy Fritz)]]

!!!As a Team
* 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: They are from Australia.
* MeaningfulName: [=TM-61=] is 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 [[ here.]]
* 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.

!!! Nick Miller (Michael "Mikey" Nicholls)

!!! Shane Thorne (Shane Veryzer)

!!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]]
!!! 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.

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

!!! 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.]]

!!! Dylan Miley

!!! Jeet Rama (Satender Ved Pal)

!!! Kishan Raftar (Lovepreet Sangha)

!!! 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: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)

!!! 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)

!!! Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford (Kenneth Crawdord) - The Street Prophets

[[folder: Non-WWE talent]]
Contains wrestlers who are not officially under WWE contract but make frequent TV appearances, typically to put over the contracted talent. NXT's usage of outside talent has ramped up in recent years, due to partnerships with both EVOLVE and Wrestling/ProgressWrestling, as well as the Wrestling/WWECruiserweightClassic.
