That's true! but still they would have to have individual themes (not Reigns...I don't like him he doesn't deserve a theme)

Interesting thing about Roman Reigns: He's actually part of the legendary Anoa'i family. He's the younger brother of Matt Anoa'i (Rosey), and they're both sons of Sika, one half of the Wild Samoans (with his brother Afa).

He did indeed. I think it was three or four weeks ago. But the NXT show is taped a month in advance (Seth Rollins won the NXT Championship in July, but we didn't see it on TV until August). It's still a pretty short timeframe though. Wanna know what's even worse? He made his pro wrestling debut in 2010. Someone behind the scenes clearly likes him, as it's extremely rare for someone to make it to WWE's main programming in such a short amount of time. I guess they're trying to make him the next Brock Lesnar, as he used to be an NFL player (he even got signed by the same team as Lesnar: the Minnesota Vikings).

Just to compare with the other debutants, Seth Rollins made his pro wrestling debut in 2005, and Dean Ambrose in 2004. It's taken them 7 & 8 years respectively to make it to the big leagues. And a bit more comparison: Big E Langston debuted in 2009, and Leo Kruger debuted in 1998.

With Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns being brought up to the main roster, the next group of guys on the rise in NXT look to be Big E Langston, Bray Wyatt (Taylor Rotunda), his brother Bo Dallas (Windham Rotunda) and the tag team of The Ascension - Conor O'Brian and Kenneth Cameron.

The Ascension have a great ring entranced and packaging as a team plus have developed a lot of double team moves from the old 1980's heel tag teams. Now that there is more emphasis on tag teams in WWE, they may be brought up together soon.

Considering how long it took for Dean Ambrose to get on TV, we'll probably be waiting several months before we see any one of those.

I think it's different for Ambrose due to his "gimmick" of being violent they had to find something specific for him
