Lists the various WWE wrestlers who are currently part of the WWE NXT Developmental System. Please limit associated tropes to that wrestler's time in WWE.
Enzo Amore (Eric Anthony)
Bullying a Dragon: Does this to Mason Ryan. Just a reminder, Mason Ryan is 6'3 and 295 pounds.
Catch Phrase: So many. The winner seems to be calling his opponents S-A-W-F-T, SAAAAWFT.
Cloudcuckoolander: Not so much on the mic or in the ring, but his backstage promos with Colin occasionally run into this. In one promo, Colin takes over the speaking after a short intro by Enzo. For the rest of the promo, Enzo ponders over something Colin said before having an epiphany in the last 20 seconds and insistently trying to get Colin's attention to point out the fact that he understood the joke.
Large Ham: Oh, my GOD. It's like it's his default setting.
Mean Character, Nice Actor: 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.
Adorkable: Quite possibly one of the biggest factors for why she got over with the crowd. As with the other popular divas in NXT (Paige, Emma), she's pushed not as a diva but as an actual character with gimmick (in this case, a fangirl of wrestling). It helps that like the other two, she also can wrestle.
Cute Bruiser: Has a noticeably more power-based moveset compared to most Divas including picking up an opponent and ramming them into the corner, the Polish Hammer and her finisher: a belly-to-belly suplex called the Belly-to-Bayley.
And during her matches, she occasionally does a corner splash which is very hug-like and a belly-to-belly suplex which the commentators called (joking) the Hugplex. Suffice to say, if a move involves a hug, she'll probably do it.
As of late, the "Belly-to-Bayley" (The above belly to belly) is now considered her finisher. She has officially taken The Glomp and weaponized it.
Cute Bruiser: Emphasised as Renee Young referred to her as looking like a fairy. She's also a little more modest than the typical Diva.
Early-Bird Cameo: 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 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.
Foil: To Charlotte, essentially. Both are gymnasts and blonde girl type gimmicks, but where Charlotte goes the Alpha Bitch 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).
I Have the High Ground: Can do a somersault off the top for the hell of it. Her finisher is also a 450 splash.
Character Development: Went from being a Sissy Villain 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. Though to be fair, as Mike Dalton, he was FCW champion.
"Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: "Sings" the lyrics to "#Mmmgorgeous", which basically amounts to Tyler talking about how really really really ridiculously good looking he is.
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 paparazzi calling for Tyler to look in their direction.
It's All About Me: 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.
Not in the Face!: 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.
Red Baron: The King of Cuteville, the Sire of Selfies and Prince Pretty.
Sissy Villain: 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.
Expy: Remarkably similar to Tamina Snuka character-wise during her 2012 push in that she uses many of her father's signature moves, taunts and Catch Phrase. Not to mention they both started their careers in developmental a bit later than most Diva prospects.
Put on a Bus: After he debuted his hacker gimmick. He hasn't appeared since; however, he's still active on Twitter and has been dropping hints of a reappearance for some months.
That being said, he recently took part in a dark match, so he may reappear soon.
Putting the Band Back Together: He and Dean Ambrose were a tag team in the indies called Switchblade Conspiracy, back when Solomon was Sami Callihan and Dean was Jon Moxley. Since Solomon signed to WWE, there have been a huge number of fans who want them to reunite.
What Could Have Been: His hacker character was a tweaked version of a gimmick that was originally slated to go to Paige. Then, for reasons unexplained, NXT pulled the plug on it.
You Look Familiar: Known as indie standout Sami Callihan of CZW, Dragon Gate USA, and many other promotions.
Awesome Anachronistic Apparel: 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 strong man 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 Vaudevillians.
The Cast Showoff: His entrance theme is him singing as he walks to the ring. He's quite good at it.
Expy: A large, young man raised in rural America that was a multiple-time collegiate wrestling award winner, recruited by Jim Ross out of college and has the real name of "Jacob"? Sounds a bit like Jack Swagger.
Hollywood Homely: He's billed as being this grungy, dirty, street guy that doesn't have the handsome, clean cut quality of other Superstars. That said, while he may not be a male model, he's certainly not unattractive.
Real Song Theme Tune: "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.
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.
You Look Familiar: Has had significant indy success under the name Sterling James Keenan.
Arch-Enemy: The Usos, when he was in a tag team with Kenneth Cameron in 2012.
Characterization Marches On: 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 Alberto Del Rio was this as well) before ditching Rodriguez and being repackaged into demons.
Four Is Death: The Ascension stable in the beginning of the darkness gimmick with O'Brian, Kenneth Cameron, Tito Colon (now Epico), and Raquel Diaz (also known as Eddie and Vickie's daughter Shaul Guerrero).
Memetic Mutation: His tendency to yell "YAH!" when performing moves has led to it becoming a chant during the Ascension's matches.
Red Baron: The Ascension name became this for him after Kenneth Cameron was released for an incident with 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.
Berserk Button: 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.
Dreadlock Warrior: Though he's a pretty easy-going guy... at least, until Tyler Breeze messed with his dreadlocks. He became angry and vicious after turning all eco-warrior, as noted below.
Face-Heel Turn: 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.
Pretty Boy: His biography states that he's a fierce competitor, rather than just another pretty boy.
Viktor (Eric Thompson)
Badass Beard: 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.
Beard of Evil: He's been a heel almost the whole time and now he's with the Ascension.
Dark Is Evil: His developmental character has gotten 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 Xtreme Kool Letterz to actually fit the gimmick.
