From the N2C Archive – August 9, 2014 – NXT Top Ten: August 9th Edition

I love NXT. In fact, I think it’s my favorite wrestling show of the week. RAW has become too long and drawn out, and while Main Event can be fun (haven’t brought myself to watch Superstars yet), NXT is fresh and new. Each week, I can count on seeing at least one thing I haven’t seen before, which is a rarity when you’re a longtime wrestling fan.

From the N2C Archives – July 23, 2014 – The Teacher’s Lounge: The Top Ten Talents of NXT

NXT's Tyler Breeze poses for himself. . .But also the crowd. . . Back in 2014.

I’m the first to admit, I’ve been very lax with my NXT watching. With the sheer enormity of content on the WWE Network, the developmental territory kept getting pushed back in my priorities. However, now that Doc Manson and I are the Number Two Contenders, I had to step my game up. So, for the last few days, I’ve caught up with NXT, beginning with the show post-Takeover to last week’s episode.

Based on this ‘extensive’ viewing, I now present my NXT Top 10. Some quick disclaimers before we begin – I did not consider any talent that had extensive WWE experience; so my apologies to Tyson Kidd, Justin Gabriel and Adam Rose. This is also based on an admittedly small sample size.
