News On More NXT Stars Getting Called Up & WWE Scouting New Talent

– WWE’s Gerald Brisco was scouting amateur wrestler Chad Hanke over the weekend. Hanke is a senior at Oregon State and was ranked #16 nationally going into this season. He’s currently just under 200 pounds but is looking to move up to heavyweight.

– Following the main roster WWE debuts of Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, the next group of NXT stars in line to be called up look to be Big E Langston, Bray Wyatt and his brother, Bo Dallas. Earlier this week, Bray Wyatt tweeted “2 months #raw” – sign that he could be debuting in early 2013.

Two more NXT stars rumored to be ready for WWE are the tag team The Ascension, Conor O’Brian and Kenneth Cameron. The duo has a very polished act and have been been developing a move set that uses a lot of double team moves used by some classic 1980’s heel teams. With WWE’s tag team division picking up in recent months, it would be a good time for WWE to introduce another strong tag team act.

    The Ascension is a badass tag team. I look foward to seeing them debut along with Bray Wyatt. Wyatt’s gimmick is pure gold.

    • Randy James Crawford

      yeah I like those guys but I only want Big E Langston if he faces Ryback in a match sometime or if he faces Kane.

    • SOBI

      Ascension will probably debut after WM when they will completely destroy someone i think.its going to be Kane because there gimmick wouldnt support going for the tag titles right away they would probably just want destruction or domination or something.
      You know what would be really awesome

      if they become The Undertakers’ goons :D

  • TheBigThing

    Hallelujah! But where’s Xavier woods?

  • satishwarne708

    The Ascension for tag team champions!

  • Trevor

    sounds good to me

  • Dennis Kristensen

    Bring up Hero DAMMITTT!!!

  • #LOLZ

    Who’s you’re HERO CHRIS HERO?

  • Lorenzo Dozier

    I hope The Ascensions remain with their Theme Song & Entrance. It fits them!

  • GodsLoyalSon

    I hope Kassius Ohno, Richie Steamboat and Xavier Woods get called up next and work as WWE’s version of the Ronin from DragonGate USA

  • Bro88

    Liking that Bray is gonna be called up soon. His promos have been spectacular. Can’t wait.

  • NWO blood

    WWE i finally acknowledging these young guys. I hope they all make it to the main event in the near future


    what about OHNO

  • JamieEvsxx

    AHH I actually love The Ascension!…xD…quite excited to see them get called up if they do…same with Bray Wyatt, I think he’s doing pretty well with this character (a lot better than the Husky Harris gimmick, don’t get me wrong he wasn’t bad, but he’s just a lot better with this weird, mysterious gimmick he’s got going on right now)…plus I’d quite like to see Ohno, Steamboat and Xavier get called up too…Big E Langston could probably get over too…he’s pretty over on NXT with the 5 count thing, so imagine that at a Raw or Smackdown show, that’d be pretty sick if people got behind him, although probably because they’ve got Ryback on Raw as the power house and he’s over with the crowd they’ll probably hold off Big E Langston until the Ryback reactions die down…=P

  • Abdelrahamn Sedik

    What about Paige ..This girl is hot and she is ready

  • m8h3r

    Ascension are good, however would that gimmick fit with the huge WWE arenas? They are all about complete darkness and they have strobe lighting for their entrance. I doubt wwe would do that for them.

    I would like to see Kassuis to be called up soon. was hoping to read his name on here. Hope he keeps the song too, flatlined is beasty.
