Rusev: I'm a fan of the guy. trained by gangrel and Rikishi, so he wasn't just picked up off the street. Has a muay thai background. He has Kozlov written all over him, but has great potential to go further than that.
Bo Dallas: If he keeps his character, he's going to get over very fast as a heel.
Rose: I don't see him going any further than Fandango. I, and I may be in the minority, vastly preferred Leo Kruger, his gimmick could have brought him in with an automatic feud with Clay, Henry, Tensei - big guys for the big game hunter, before developing to hunting 'popular' stars. Rose is going to be fun, but won't go far without a gimmick change.
Paige: She'll do fine, if they don't change her.
Expected to debut -
Ascension: I'm not to high on them. Wyatt's have the whole dark thing down, and Ascension hasn't had much but squash matches in NXT. Literally. Almost every match is squash.
Zayn: Could go far as the underdog babyface.
