Editorial: A Look At The Changes In NXT, The Future Of The WWE, Who Else Could Be Signed?
|By Jesse Collings | March 14, 2013 | Comments|
Michael Elgin: Powerful Ring of Honor star burst onto the scene with a humongous 2012 in which he wrestled intense matches with ROH stalwarts Davey Richards, Kevin Steen and Roderick Strong. Will need more seasoning on the microphone before making the jump to the WWE, but the Canadian star is only 25 and looks to be locked into a main event spot in ROH.
Mike Bennett: Has recently been in talks with the WWE and even received a tryout match in 2012. Passable in-ring skills are boosted by a great body and solid charisma. Fiancé of former WWE Diva Maria.
Saturyne: Masked women's wrestler is already a fan-favorite in CHIKARA despite only making her debut in late 2011. Works an interesting lucha libre style that has the potential to be very successful in the WWE if booked properly.
Kenny Omega: Well-traveled veteran has popped up everywhere from New Japan to Ring of Honor. Looks and wrestles like Dolph Ziggler. Capable of performing as a gutsy face or a dastardly heel, Omega has worked in an exciting tag team with New Japan star Kota Ibushi in the past few years.
Ricochet: Dragon Gate regular is friends with PAC and could join the WWE if PAC becomes a big star. Spectacular high-flyer who's Double Rotation Moonsault might be the most exciting move in wrestling today. Only 24 years old.
AR Fox: Currently holds the CZW TV Title and wrestles regularly for Dragon Gate USA. Like Kofi Kingston, Fox has good size for a high-flyer and possess untapped charisma. Also holds the CZW Light Heavyweight Title and DG USA Tag Titles.
