He has some status. While the company might not always use them as well as possible, there is some incredible talent up and down the WWE roster. Not only do the main roster shows have all the wrestlers they can handle, but NXT also has its share of highly skilled performers. Some of those wrestlers are going to get more attention than others, and now two of them are receiving some special praise.
In addition to all of them young up and coming stars in WWE, there are also some incredible veterans who have been around the block before. One of the biggest names WWE has is AJ Styles, who has been a pretty major success everywhere that he has gone. That puts him in some special company and makes his opinion on things a little more interesting. Now he is weighing in with a bit of a talent evaluation.
In a new interview with WWE India, Styles was asked to name the three stars that he felt would be the next breakout names for WWE. Styles only named two, picking Riddle and Keith Lee, both of whom are part of the Monday Night Raw roster along with him. This is the second time that Riddle’s name has appeared on such a list in recent weeks, as Hulk Hogan also called him the next breakout star.
Both of them have potential. Check out the two stars in action and the interview:
Opinion: Styles has some good taste in stars and you can see the potential in both of them. Lee is already in line for a WWE Title shot and Riddle has been mentioned twice in a row with these lists. Both of them could go a long way in the future but they are coming off of a good base. Now hopefully they can keep it up and improve on what they have already done, which is the harder part.
