Indy to WWE, who's next?


Recommended Posts

Over the past few years former independent stars have been the highlight of WWE programming, from CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, to most recently Antonio Cesaro, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Last year we had the high quality matches involving Bryan and Punk and this year current stars like the Shield, Antionia Cesaro and NXT newbies have ripped up the rule book and given fans a new form of wrestling. I personally like the style these former independent stars have introduced as it's different and offers and alternative to the kick, punch style of yesteryear.

 

Most recently we saw what was the classic between John Cena and Daniel Bryan and on NXT this week we saw Antonio Cesaro tear the house down with Sami Zayn. In the past 12 months we have seen on Raw and SD the debuts of The Shield and The Wyatt Family and over on NXT we have seen the introductions of numerous multi talented stars destined for a future with WWE.

 

Over the next few months I would love to see the promotions of both Corey Graves, Adrianne Neville and Kassius Ohno to the main shows. My real question is who else is there in NXT and outside of WWE who can make the leap from the independents to the WWE and make a career for themselves and emulate what Bryan and Punk have done and stamp there mark on the industry?

 

Over the past few weeks I've reignited my interest and watched a bit more independent and Japanese wrestling. Two stars which really stand out for me and who I think would benefit WWE are Prince Devitt and Richochet who have been the highlight of which ever promotion they have represented. These two I feel could easily fit in to WWE and bring something else to the company, times are changing in WWE and these are the wrestlers that I feel could easily enhance WWE for a very long time.

After last night, Grado. The boy is tremendous.

 

Also, I would love to see the Bucky Boys, the wee man and Lambrini come into WWE as a stable and keep the exact same gimmick. Nobody would have a clue what the hell was going on, but it would be awesome.

I feel like the only way Davey Richards to WWE works is if the company just completely trolls the f*ck out of him. Like, Low Ki with Laycool kind of trolling, but a thousand times better. Give him the most absurd name of all time (it's NXT, that's easily sorted), give him a preposterous gimmick, give him like two moves and the Downward Spiral as a finish, and get him dancing with Tons of Funk and jobbing to Hornswoggle ASAP.

 

I'd watch.
