Default Who has the best gimmick in NXT right now?

It seems that ever since Triple H took creative control over character development he has brought back the gimmicks in wrestling. This is something is even rarely seen in TNA nowadays.

Anyways, I will have to say Bray Wyatt. It is not original, but I see a new twist in the Cape Fear gimmick and this guy pulls it off better than Waylon Mercy.

We should make a list of NXT gimmicks.

Bray Wyatt- Southern disturbed leader of a cult?
Leo Kruger- Hunter who looks for the perfect prey.
The Ascension- Sinister, vampire-like guys.
Seth Rollins- Punker/Rocker.
Kassius Ohno- Sadistic KO specialist.
Corey Graves- Underground hedonistic.

From WWE:
Johnny Curtis- Creepy.
Húnico and Camacho- Mexican gang.
The Usos- Samoan youngsters being contemporary while maintain their heritage.

Then, a list of guys that maybe have a gimmick, but I'm not sure:
Trent Barreta- Freak weirdo?
Rick Victor- He has a very good villain look, but that isn't a character for now.
Big E Lanston- Typical muscled monster.

Finally, a list of generic and pointless guys.
Richie Steamboat, Bo Dallas, Xavier Woods, Nick Rogers, Jake Carter, perhaps Dalton despite having nice tights.

The two that immediately spring to my mind would be Bray Wyatt and the Ascension.

Bray Wyatt
Corey Graves
I'd go with Seth Rollins here but it comes off as really forced.

This is a solid list.
I might have slipped Rollins into the might have a gimmick list, because it's either not much of one, or he's terrible at it.

I still think Victor would fit into Ascension.

Most faces are Generic, Smiling Guys anyway, regardless of where they fall on the WWE ladder.

Ups, thanks to you I noticed I put twice Richie Steamboat when my intention was putting Bo Dallas.

Yes, I agree with you talking about Rollins. Doing headband and having two-coloured hair doesn't count as a gimmick when you are a CM Punk clone, for me. But most of the people here think that's a gimmick, so...

And yes, NXT faces are terrible. Bo Dallas and Richie Steamboat fail miserably at having a personality or standing out in something.

Bo and Richie are basically the same guy anyway. Richie manages to not look stupid and can sort of wrestle in the "I love arm drags" way. I have no use for Bo, so I approved of seeing Richie listed twice instead.

I'd rather be stuck watching Dalton, since he can really go in the ring AND has nice tights. He definitely doesn't have a gimmick though.
