He is certainly an NJPW legend, but he's also a huge part in NXT's history. I'd consider him both.

Patrick Clark? Still, almost undoubtedly not, the odds are astronomically against even that, but no way in HELL Velveteen Dream. If Velveteen Dream, the character, main events a WrestleMania, then WWE has become Impact wrestling. They've been dead for 10 years, just hanging on for dear life, they've lost their biggest cable deal, the wrestling insiders don't even cover WWE anymore. That's when Velveteen Dream main events WrestleMania. Even then I'd doubt it.
Velveteen Dream will mainevent as early as Wrestlemania 36

Whether or not the WWE collapses
Man, I'd mark out so hard for this. I need this!

Yeah, honestly I don't see either of them doing anything too great on the main roster. It's sad to think about it, but realistically speaking it makes too much logical sense. Vince will take one look at those guys & deem them jobbers. Unless Hunter pushes to convince him otherwise.

Roman is also a NXT guy.

Whatever you say, bro. I hope I remember this post at WrestleMania 36, so I can point and laugh.

Jason Jordan would have won it at some point if he hadn't hurt his neck

How is he such a huge part of NXT's history? What has he done that has changed the perception of wrestling? Has he done that? No. He had some cool matches but that's it, be objective and don't spin things around. He didn't improve his English skills and certainly didn't improve or had important storylines that warrant such a claim, therefore he's not a NXT guy.

He was the face of the brand for a year. No one was close to his level of popularity in NXT during that year. He is the first two time NXT champion & proves to the talent down in NXT that being a multiple champion is possible. I'm not saying he's the biggest influence in the brand's history & I'm certainly not saying that it's where he made his bones through out his career, but he was a big part of the brand when you come right down to it. I'm not a fool. I know it's a fact he is an NJPW legend more over than an NXT star.

His time in NXT was so brief, I forgot. Btw. digging the repping of Christian as your avatar. He was underrated as a singles competitor.
