  1. So this will be a double question inside of one thread, both of them are the same question except the answers/responses will be grouped differently..

    So excluding Zayn's stint as the Bunny as well as excluding dark matches they've both participated in which one of these NXT stars do you see coming upto the main roster first?

    Adrian Neville,
    Sami Zayn?

    Now onto the newcomers.. there are three I'll put here and I just wanna know which one you think will advance to the WWE main roster first.

    Hideo Itami,
    Finn Balor,
    Kevin Owens?


    For me I'd have to say Sami Zayn for the group of two that have been on NXT roster for over a year now.. and then I'd have to say Balor when it comes to the newcomers.. IMO 4 of them would make solid main roster players, Neville would be the one I'm questioning.

  2. taking a guess Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
  3. I'm more interested on where they will shift into play. Zayn will show up followed 1-2 months later by Neville, and the other 3 I don't want to choose who, mostly due to worry they will be poorly used.
  4. Neville will debut first, right after the 'official' debut of The Ascension on the flagship show, imo.
    Sami Zayn will likely join the main roster 2-3 months later. I fully believe Sami is gonna win the NXT title from Neville at Takeover and stick around on NXT for some time. Neville should come up sooner than Zayn. Fine by me, 'cause I don't see Neville being as nearly successful as Zayn.

    As far as the newcomers go, gotta go with Finn Balor. Itami will likely debut after Finn, or they may debut as a team, who knows. My guess is Finn Balor.
    Owens is likely to debut much later than these two, 'cause I think he'll win the NXT title from Sami, when Sami gets called up.

  5. My thing is with Sami being under the Bunny mask he has seen in person what it's like to be on the big stage, this will help him elevate upto the main roster faster IMO because he can now play to the crowd (not that he wasn't already) to a larger extent.. Personally I think Neville needs a little bit more moves in his arsenal and some minor tweaks on his mic work before they call him up, so I see him in NXT up until at least 2 months after Zayn gets called up.. but like I said that's just personally how I feel.

    I am going to have to agree with you on Balor, I mean I believe he's the most experienced and has the better moves/mic ability to get him up on the main roster over Hideo.. I do like Owens but I'd like to see him be a complete force of reckoning in the NXT universe.
  6. Everything you said about Zayn makes sense. But, I don't wanna see him in that silly bunny suit, I wanna see him on that roster as something that's gonna change the business, nowadays it's too much to ask for, I know. Is he gonna adapt to the main roster faster than any of the NXT talent and be the most successful, considering the current NXT roster? Yes, there's no doubt in my mind. It's just up to the WWE not to fuck it up.

    Neville is great in the ring, and while I don't like him nearly as much as Zayn, he has a shitload of moves, man. It's the WWE that's told him to tone it down, most likely. As far as his mic skills go, I don't think there's much he can do about it, he just isn't good, and that's alright, his in-ring skills are great.

    Umm... About who'll be joining the roster sooner, 'tween Neville and Zayn... I gotta go with Neville, purely because I see Zayn winning the NXT title from him at Takeover, so Neville should stick around a couple of weeks after December 11th, to get his rematch against Zayn and lose again, and then leave NXT and join the main roster. Zayn should stick around 2-3 months during his title run, before getting called up to the main roster. That's just how I see it.

    I see Balor being more successful than Itami, maybe even more successful than Owens, as well. We'll see, though.
    I see Owens becoming an unstoppable force in NXT, too. That's, of course, if the Empire doesn't neuter him, moveset-wise and more-less character-wise.
    Time will only tell.
