There are a lot of wrestlers who did NOT get hyped up in NXT only to do really well once they hit the main roster. Who is the best though? :aj3

If you mean someone that was the least hyped but had to most unexpected success, its probably Xavier Woods.

People thought nothing of him and he ended up in a legendary, record breaking tag team who were one of the most over acts in the company for a long time.

Rollins was hyped and he is pretty much on par with what was expected.

Roman Reigns and Charlotte. I was one of 3 people hyping her up before she got promoted. I was told she gets carried in all of her matches, has no charisma, and would end up like Natalya. Now, she's generally agreed upon to be the best and most successful NXT female callup.

Overall
Owens
Seth
Charlotte
Roman (if he counts)

Xavier and Alexa are doing pretty well considering they didn't do much while they were in NXT, so they would be the ones that are higher positioned than what they came in as.

KO and Balor are out of the running. They were hyped up to the max in NXT. Xavier Woods is a good call. Braun didn't have much hype in NXT. He got strong booking in a few matches and then moved up without much noise being made and did great. All 4 horsewomen had massive hype and they were the women's revolution so they don't count. Alexa wasn't pushed that hard but has shined on MR.

According to the OP and those that didn't get hyped a lot I'd go with

Xavier
Corbin
Alexa

The likes of Seth/Owens/Balor/Charlotte/etc all got pushed pretty hard in NXT. So if you want to count them go ahead.
