What are some of the NXT wrestlers gimmick

So I was looking at the NXT roster page and I must say there are some intriguing looking people on that roster. I don't watch NXT so I was wondering if someone could tell me what the gimmick/character is for the following (if they have one).

Corey Graves
Enzo Amore
Erick Rowan
Danny Burch
J Bronson
Judas Devlin
Knuckles Madsen
Leo Kruger
Memo Montenegro
Rick Victor
Sylvester Lefort
Brandon Traven
Axl Keegan

Audrey Marie
Dani
Emma
Sasha Banks
Summer Rae

Re: What are some of the NXT wrestlers gimmick

Corey Graves is basically a street thug. Hilariously, his finisher is some complicated leg submission. Fits PERFECTLY with that gimmick.

Kruger is doing an African poacher/hunter gimmick.

Erick Rowan is an underling to Bray Wyatt and is tag teaming with Luke Harper, the former Brodie Lee on the Indies. Bray Wyatt is Husky Harris, except now he's awesome and has a cult leader gimmick. Rowan and Harper are just these big guys who beat up their opponents and then just walk back to Wyatt with this dazed, zombie-esque look on their face that you can CLEARLY see means he's controlling them. Rowan originally had a Viking gimmick or something, but they changed that. Now he wears a green jump suit. Harper is basically just wearing what he did as Brodie Lee, they really didn't change him except that he looks like a deranged underling and doesn't talk.

Bronson has an MMA gimmick.

Judas Devlin is basically a Hipster version of Damien Sandow, but I've never seen him on NXT ever, except when everybody ran down to the ring to congratulate Big E Langston on winning the title.

Sylvester Lefort hasn't shown up on NXT to my knowledge, but he was using a gimmick where he dressed up like a Spartan from 300 on the Indies. They had to have changed that because his NXT picture looked different. He was trained by Lance Storm, for whatever that's worth.

Don't really know about the others. I haven't caught every week of NXT but they don't seem like regulars from what I have caught.

Nobody really has a gimmick that sticks out that well except Wyatt's cult leader gimmick. That's amazing.

What everyone really wants for Christmas:

Re: What are some of the NXT wrestlers gimmick

I wouldn't say Graves was a 'street thug' at all, he's supposed to be a hedonistic guy from the underground music scene. Apart from the ones Tyrion mentioned, the rest are either yet to debut or have only been featured as jobbers. Of the Divas, Emma seems to have a gimmick of an Australian who dances badly, Audrey and Sasha are just generic Divas and Dani and Summer Rae are yet to debut on TV, although Summer has been working as the ring announcer occasionally.

Re: What are some of the NXT wrestlers gimmick

I see potential in Judas Devlin and Cory Graves creating a tag team. They can be the Hardy Boy-esque team, while Harper and Rowan play the brutes which were the Dudley Boys, and Sandow and Rhodes play the Edge & Christian-esque team. Time to make the tag team division relevant again. And why not pair Kofi Kingston and Big E. Langston!

Or... they could just use actual tag teams to play tag teams.

Re: What are some of the NXT wrestlers gimmick

Bray Wyatt has a really good gimmick, but it means we're not seeing him wrestle!

However, the rocking chair is getting closer to the ring so maybe that means he'll be stepping in to trip an opponent or something?

Him and Bronson I am keen to see more of. And has been mentioned, there's some on the roster I've still yet to see and I've seen every new NXT so far.

Must admit I really like this version, it's much more old-school wrestling style with the smaller arena, very few kids in the crowd etc. etc.

Wyatt hasn't been wrestling because he is injured. He wrestled quite a lot in FCW, and was awesome.
