I bet those guys with generic names at NXT now who are lining up to join the main roster must be pissed at the midget. But why all of a sudden El Torito, who signed up with the company in merely April 2013, rocketed his way up to the main roster without even being a competitor at NXT?

Like the poster above me said, he isn't wrestling or speaking. The more serious competitors need to train in NXT to develop those skills. El Torito's just a mascot that does a few spots here and there.

I think it's also a matter of him being a special case. They don't have a minis division at any level so there's no point in putting him in development.

El Torito is just a mascot. It's basically a Hornswaggle push except he's actually athletic and capable of doing a few intricate things in the ring.

I don't see why they'd be jealous of that. The guys in NXT with talent will get onto the roster unless they blow it somehow.

this guy has been wrestling for 13 YEARS , dude replaced mascarita sagrada who was a LEGEND in Mexico. He doesn't need any developmental.


Now if they could only bring in Octagoncito and Mini Abismo *****...

As others have said El Torito is just a mascot and shouldn't be thought of as anything else.

I would be pissed too if I had two random names put together. Briley Pierce? wtf is that? It's like they drew random names on pieces of paper, put them in a hat, and drew out two names, and BAM.

He's from the mini-Estrella division in CMLL and AAA, there is no one else in NXT like him, he is there in WWE for a specific purpose, and developmental isn't needed, since he won't be doing many full length matches. I'm sure everyone of the "losers" knows that.

El Torito is more experienced in the ring than almost the entire NXT development roster, including several indie darlings.
