Who is the most overrated of the NXT 6?

I have a lot of love for all 6 of these guys, but I also feel all 6 of them have major, major flaws.

Gargano lacks the size to be a major player, and to be honest he probably had blown his entire load with this ciampa fued.

I mean his character arc is very developed and has been done well, but how are they gonna tell that story somewhere else with out it feeling repetitive. Could be wrong they could find something else for him, but little faith.

Ciampa is old and injury proned. And a lot like gargano with out this hot fued would he have gotten where he is today. He also wrestles a very physical and high impact style, can he keep at this pace?

Ricochet is amazing in the ring, but honestly, his stature, and voice really make him unbelievable as a threat. And honestly just judging from his time in NXT I feel like he uses the same spots over and over again in matches. I know that can be said About most wrestlers just don’t feel like he does unique stuff enough, feel very spot heavy.

Velveteen Dream, has a lot of amazing tools, unlike a lot of the other he has believable size. I also admire his character work, but would his character be taken seriously on the main roster? I also still feel he is super raw in the ring, his matches seem so chunky to me.

Adam Cole (bay bay) size,size, size. And let’s be real, he is a small Shawn micheals. Super kicks are so 1996! I will be fair and say he hasn’t had his time to really shine yet, but still.

Alestair black, cool entrance, cool look, amazing striking ability. He has the height but doesn’t look like an athlete. I don’t feel like he has any type of character he, which fuels the mystery but is that enough. I am worried that he going to go supernatural.

To awnser my own question I am going to say ciampa is the most over rated of the six. I love him, but I don’t think he can translate this success outside of the diy stuff.

Re: Who is the most overrated of the NXT 6?

I think Dream is the most "overrated", and it's not a competition.

That said, I don't think he's overrated much at all, just in comparison to the other 5. Some people say he's the next Rock, and I can get behind that. But, he's as good as the rest.


Also, OP, overrated and not good are different things. You're thread title and post are quite different.

Cole tbh

Dream is probably the weakest technically but when you compare his experience with the rest of the guys his progress has been incredible.

Velveteen Dream will have big time trouble when he's over-exposed appearing every show, every week. He's more a special attraction in a way given how he presents himself, and that won't work when he's working three minute television filler throwaway matches on one of the main brands.

AEW Roster = Kevin Smith movie casting

Ricochet.

Don't get me wrong he is an incredibly smooth performer; however his moveset consists of too many flips, watching him is like watching a gymnast, there's so many guys on the indies that are very similar to him. Character wise he's just a bore, I don't find him very charismatic, he is already looking forgettable on the main roster.

I love all 6 but Cole I guess for the way some of the fans complain about his booking . Would not say any of them are overrated to me

Ciampa. People act like he's the greatest heel ever cause he spoiled Infinity War. Dude was gifted a nuclear heat storyline but nothing I've seen from him is special-- he's a good but not elite ring worker, a slightly above average promo, a good but not elite character worker, he's below average in look/presence, and below average in charisma, yet he has the nerve to call himself the greatest sport's entertainer in the world.

Have his heel turn happen against literally anybody besides Gargano and he's getting Drew McIntyre reactions.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

That's exactly why I picked him myself, he's literally out of the heel 101 playbook but with his praise you'd think he's Helmsley in 2000. Not saying he's bad by any means because he's not, it's just not THAT special. And you're absolutely correct in he landed a goldmine in Gargano.
