KUWAIT CITY(IAMINKUWAIT): The following is a list of the best NXT wrestlers of all time. Forever. NXT is like the WWE's minor leagues... but it's also a brand of its own putting more emphasis on in-ring action and excellence in technical wrestling than any match that takes place on Raw or SmackDown. The wrestlers (or Superstars) in NXT are rapidly making a name for themselves and building an almost cult-like following amongst viewers who yearn for the technical superiority of wrestling days-gone-by

Daniel Bryan

Bryan Lloyd Danielson is an American professional wrestler and author currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Daniel Bryan and is the current WWE Champion in his fourth reign.

In WWE, Bryan held the WWE Championship four times and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once, in addition to being a one-time United States Champion, a one-time Intercontinental Champion, and a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion as part of Team Hell No (with Kane). He was also the 2011 SmackDown Money in the Bank winner, the 2013 Superstar of the Year Slammy Award winner and the SmackDown General Manager from July 2016 to April 2018. Bryan is the 26th Triple Crown Champion and the 6th Grand Slam Champion in WWE history and headlined several major pay-per-view events, including WrestleMania XXX.

Seth Rollins

Colby Daniel Lopez is an American professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand under the ring name Seth Rollins.

Prior to signing with WWE, Lopez wrestled under the ring name Tyler Black for Ring of Honor (ROH), where he held the ROH World Championship once and the ROH World Tag Team Championship twice (with Jimmy Jacobs), as well as the winner of the 2009 Survival of the Fittest tournament. He also wrestled for various independent promotions including Full Impact Pro (FIP), where he was a one-time FIP World Heavyweight Champion, as well as Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), where he was a one-time PWG World Tag Team Champion (also with Jacobs).

Sasha Banks

Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado is an American professional wrestler who is currently signed to WWE on the Raw brand under the ring name Sasha Banks.

She previously wrestled on the independent circuit, most notably for Chaotic Wrestling, where she once held the Chaotic Wrestling Women's Championship. Between WWE and their developmental brand NXT, Banks has had five championship reigns—being a former NXT Women's Champion and a record tying four-time Raw Women's Champion. Her match against Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Respect on October 7, 2015 was the first women's match to ever headline a major WWE event, the first women's Iron Man match, and the longest women's match in WWE history at the time with a length of 30 minutes. Their match was voted by Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) as the Match of the Year, with Banks also being voted as the Woman of the Year while their NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn in August 2015 won the NXT Year-End Award for Match of the Year.

In 2016, she and Charlotte Flair became the first women to headline a WWE pay-per-view event and the first to compete in a Hell in a Cell match (both at Hell in a Cell in October 2016), the first women to main event Raw in a women's match since 2004 and the first women to win the Pro Wrestling Illustrated award for Feud of the Year.

Kevin Steen

Kevin Yanick Steen is a Canadian professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand under the ring name Kevin Owens. He is currently on hiatus due to a leg injury. Owens began his career in 2000 at the age of 16. Prior to joining WWE in late 2014, from 2007 Steen wrestled under his birth name for Ring of Honor (ROH), where he held the ROH World Championship and ROH World Tag Team Championship. Steen also wrestled extensively on the independent circuit for 14 years, most notably in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), where he held the PWG World Championship a record three times, as well as the PWG World Tag Team Championship on three occasions. Steen also competed for International Wrestling Syndicate (IWS), where he held three times the IWS World Heavyweight Championship, All American Wrestling (AAW), where he held the AAW Heavyweight Championship; and Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), where he held the CZW Iron Man Championship.

Charlotte Flair

Ashley Elizabeth Fliehr is an American professional wrestler, author and actress currently signed to WWE, where she performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Charlotte Flair. A second generation professional wrestler, she is the daughter of Ric Flair.

As a teenager, Flair appeared alongside her father in World Championship Wrestling. In 2012, she began training with WWE, debuting in its developmental brand NXT in 2013. In 2014, she won the NXT Women's Championship and was named Rookie of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI). Flair was promoted to WWE's main roster in 2015, quickly winning the Divas Championship. In 2016, she was crowned the inaugural WWE Women's Champion (which later became the Raw Women's Championship when the brand split was reintroduced). Her match against Sasha Banks at Hell in a Cell in October 2016 was the first match featuring women to headline a WWE pay-per-view event. Together in 2016, they also main evented Raw in a singles match in October and November 2016 (the first for a women's match since 2004) and became the first women to win the PWI award for Feud of the Year. They also set the new record for the longest WWE women's one-on-one match at Roadblock: End of the Line in December 2016 at over 34 minutes. PWI readers named Flair both Woman of the Year and the world's top female professional wrestler for 2016.

Flair is an seven-time women's world champion in WWE, a record she shares with Trish Stratus. Her accomplishments include being a former (and final) Divas Champion, the first and four-time Raw Women's Champion and a two-time SmackDown Women's Champion. Prior to joining the main roster, she had a reign as NXT Women's Champion. She is the first and only wrestler to hold all four championships in WWE as well as the longest-reigning SmackDown Women's Champion in WWE history.
