Jack Swagger
"I had met Jim Ross and Jerry Brisco before I was even in college and they always told me to get your degree first and then we'll give you a shot if you want to come try your hand with the WWE. I graduated in May 2006, flew out to Atlanta for a week to tryout, and by July 2006 I was signed and training in Atlanta. I took a little bit different path than most WWE superstars have taken. I'm one of the few superstars who have gone through all three of the developmental camps." - Jack Swagger reveals his path to the WWE developmental program

Camacho
"Dominance. I know that my opponent doesn't hit harder than me. Heck, my opponent probably doesn't even hit harder than my mom. I plan to accomplish my goals of being the No. 1 contender for the WWE NXT Title, becoming NXT Champion and then ridding this place of the circus characters that annoy me. After that, I'm gonna reconstruct the foundation of NXT and rebuild this place the right way. I'm gonna make NXT respectable again." - Camacho talking about his stint in developmental

Antonio Cesaro
When Antonio Cesaro left him for Paul Heyman recently, Zeb Colter took to Twitter to ask fans who they thought should replace him and team with Jack Swagger in the Real Americans stable. Scott Dawson has been campaigning for the role through social media, but it is highly unlikely that WWE brings him up from developmental at this point in time.
April 19, 2014

While he is not a well known name to WWE fans yet, Enzo Amore is currently in the plans with the company.

April 18, 2014
Sami Zayn
When several of the WWE stars take off for Saudi Arabia this week, Sami Zayn will be joining them. He's the only developmental wrestler going on the tour.

There are still rumors floating around that Zayn could be one of the WWE NXT stars to be called up to the main roster in the coming weeks.

April 16, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While there were talks about building a stable around Dolph Ziggler and Miz, two performers who have not been pushed as much as they used to be lately, those discussions have grown a bit dormant as of late. WWE has been focused on bringing up the developmental wrestlers from WWE NXT, and they have been occupied with the tribute show for Ultimate Warrior.
April 15, 2014
Heath Slater
Since the company needs room for all the new stars that they are bringing up from the developmental program, WWE is expected to allow several of the veteran performers to leave the company soon. The belief is that Heath Slater will be allowed to walk once his contract expires. The 3MB member has expressed frustration backstage over not receiving a push.
April 14, 2014
Adrian Neville
Since the company introduced so many new faces on Monday Night Raw this week, speculations have ran rampant about which WWE NXT will be called up to the main roster as well. Heavyweight champion Adrian Neville has been heavily discussed by fans, but it appears that WWE will be keeping him in developmental until at least the summer.
April 13, 2014
Tara
Rumors are floating around right now about Tara, formerly known as Victoria, making her return to WWE in the near future. While she might be utilized as a part time in ring performer, it appears that management is leaning towards Tara being more of a trainer down in WWE NXT. Some are saying she will be given a trial run during the next developmental divas tryouts.
April 12, 2014
Adam Rose
Even though WWE is bringing up Bo Dallas, Alexander Rusev, Adam Rose and Paige, there are still plans from management to move Sami Zayn from the WWE NXT roster to the main one. There were talks that he was going to be kept in developmental, so that the program can have some depth and star power, but it looks like WWE is going all in now.
April 11, 2014
AJ Lee
Even though she made her debut on Monday Night Raw and captured the WWE Divas Championship from AJ Lee in a shocking manner, Paige will not be traveling with the main roster this upcoming weekend. Instead, she will be working WWE NXT shows in Florida, where she is expected to finish up and possibly drop the developmental title to another diva.
April 10, 2014
Bo Dallas
A video teasing the return of Bo Dallas to the main roster. WWE attempted to bring him up once, but they quickly changed their mind and sent him back down to developmental for further training. WWE will be using the "Bo-lieve" gimmick that he helped him gain a following down in WWE NXT.

April 10, 2014
Bo Dallas
In a move that many people had been expecting for quite some time now, Bo Dallas has been called back up to the main roster by WWE. His last stint was rather uneventful, and he was sent back down to developmental. Dallas was the WWE NXT guy that CM Punk was heavily pushing to management before he walked out of the company a few weeks back.

Roman Reigns
Aided by the fact that so many fans want to see it coming back, rumors have been spreading that WWE is considering the idea of doing a War Games match between Shield (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins) and Evolution (Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista) at WWE Battleground in July. However, management has long been against the idea, so things are still up in the air.
April 23, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Since his popularity has been growing by the day, there are actually talks backstage in WWE of doing a face turn with Bray Wyatt.

Dolph Ziggler
In an interesting move, WWE had Dean Ambrose defend the United States Heavyweight Championship at a live event in Saudi Arabia this week. He successfully retained the belt in a fatal four way that consisted of Cody Rhodes, Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler. Ambrose has rarely been allowed to defend the US title over the last couple of months.
April 18, 2014
MVP
For the longest time there, MVP was the longest reigning WWE United States Heavyweight Champion, but that mark looks to be broken soon if Dean Ambrose can hold on to the belt a little while longer. The Shield member rarely defends the belt, but WWE could opt to include it in the story line against Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.

April 6, 2014
Roman Reigns
"You know what, I tell him this and we joke about it, but the smartest thing WWE did was put him with me and Dean Ambrose. Because when we met him, he started from scratch. Granted he's got a whole family history in the wrestling business, but he's a football player. He's an athlete and he's coachable, but like he gets it. Like he got it quick and he understood right away what we were doing. I think putting him with myself and Ambrose, who had the wealth of experience and the all the knowledge and traveling the road. We're in a car all the time, we're on the planes together, we're having the matches together. He was just able to soak up that information we were giving out like a sponge and you can see the difference. He was great when we came in, but look at him now and he's a completely different performer. It was the smartest thing they ever did, putting him with us." - Seth Rollins discussing the backstage reason why Roman Reigns was placed with the Shield
April 6, 2014
Kane
While plans are constantly being changed throughout the week, WWE currently has Kane, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in the opening match at Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that the audience in New Orleans should give these guys a nice pop since all six guys are fairly over.
April 5, 2014
Dean Ambrose
When the picture of the four of them together initially spread across the internet, there was not a lot of details as to why John Cena was standing in the ring united with Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. It has now been revealed that the four of them teamed up in a dark match main event at the Smackdown taping against Kane, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
