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 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.
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.
To put it another way, compared to the vast majority of Divas, her move set tends to include moves typically used by power/technical wrestlers. For instance, she does a corner splash with none of the usual Diva flair and her finisher is a muta lock.
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 "Hugplex" (The above belly to belly) is now considered her finisher. She has officially taken The Glomp and weaponized it.
Defeat Means Friendship: Defeated Bayley in her debut match and the two somehow became friends afterwards. Since it is Bayley, it's not that unreasonable.
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.
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.
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.
Oliver Grey (Joel Pettyfer)
Game-Breaking Injury: Suffered a knee injury, just days after he and Adrian Neville had won the NXT Tag Team titles.
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).
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.
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.
