NXT Promo Class Leaked: Diva Characters Revealed

Yesterday, footage from NXT’s “Presentations Skills” class leaked, giving us a peek at characters NXT’s newest Divas are developing.

Alexa Bliss, who previously debuted her Nidia-esque redneck character at an NXT live event, displayed the character in two promos: one that featured fellow developmental Diva Christina Vargas and another with Scott Dawson, who she managed at the live event.

In her promo, Charlotte voiced her frustration at living in the shadow of her famous father Ric Flair and claimed to be the greatest female athlete in the WWE’s past, present or future.

Charlotte also appeared in a promo with Becky Lynch, which demonstrated their comedic abilities as they faced off in a Riverdance battle.

Sasha Banks played a heelish, arrogant character who sang her own praises and name dropped cousin Snoop Dogg.

Devin Taylor appeared only as an interviewer, speaking with Veronica Lane, who was in a pageant queen persona, all smiles and gracious words.

Christina Vargas, who was signed earlier this year but only recently arrived at NXT, displayed a snobby, privileged character in one promo and interviewed a Superstar in another.

Lana expressed her wish to become General Manager Dusty Rhodes‘s personal assistant, recording an audio blog on her iPad that had her displaying a air headed character that liked to use Instagram and tweet with cliche hashtags.

Kendall Skye, who thus far has mostly served as a ring announcer for NXT, recorded a serious promo that had her reflecting on the anniversary of 9/11.

The videos were eventually switched to private and are no longer available for viewing.

All of these reflect works in progress, so obviously none of these character are set in stone. Even so, it’s interesting to see what direction they’re heading in.

Did you see the promos? Which did you like best?

  • NyuBomber

    The Baily + Paige promo blew the other womens’ efforts away.

    But, as for the batch pointed out in the article, I have to go with the Charlotte + Lynch skit. Charlotte’s solo promo was alright, Skye’s promo had me rolling my eyes at the content (though the delivery was sound), and the others weren’t memorable. Which is alright, cause I’m 99% sure these are just exercises in promo-cutting/acting.

  • AWESOMENICK

    um ew they don’t look good

  • DivaLicious

    My new fave divas; Alexa, Veronica, Devin and Becky!

    • xFoxylicious

      • SimplyDivaLicious

    “displaying a air headed character that liked to use Instagram and tweet with cliche hashtags.”

    So, her character is basically Layla?

  • Brandon

    Emma, paige, and bailey were fun to watch lol

  • OJ Von Erich

    Can I just say Alexa Bliss reminds me so much of Joy Turner from ‘My Name Is Earl’…

  • DivaLicious

    Can’t wait till the new nxt divas (Veronica Alexa Devin Becky and Christina) debut!

  • OJ Von Erich

    Okay, I have a few things to say here:

    Alexa Bliss – This girl gives me life, she has character haha “Have a Bliss-full day!”

    Does anybody else really wanna see a Charlotte vs Naomi match, imagine how acrobatical that could be!

    Lana seems like she could be quite funny given more time.

    Kendall Skye’s ppromo made me feel a little awkward for some reason? :/

    Paige & Bayley = ?

    Sasha, you know I love you, but please, for the love of god… Don’t ever try to be ghetto/street!

    Veronica Lane is so pretty!

    • BorisG

      For me the hottest is Christina.

  • Matty Marie Ziggler

    Team Lana!
    All she needs to do is do her hair like she had it in that music video.
    Also Lana is defiantly a Hollywood Starlet name!

  • ????? KING ?????

    Alexa Bliss is great i have seen divas praise her work in the ring and she is solid in character she has this Torrie like girl next door likability. Kendall & Charlotte look so much alike loved Charlotte and think Kendall did good would be a good team. I liked Sasha BGC ghetto character it would work in today’s WWE imagine her and Cameron feuding lol

  • David Wilson

    Why am I thinking these are leaked deliberately? This is the 2nd set of these we’ve seen…

  • http://noreallyitstrue.wordpress.com/ AdrianRay

    All these characters are giving me “Golden Era” vibes with the wacky side to them all.

    If this is how Scott Dawson and Alexa are going to be as a pairing I fully support her being his valet. They kind of remind me of Jaimie noble and Nidia.

  • Ittyx

    I saw these and my favorites where the blond girl & Paige with Bayley! It was kinda weird seeing my queen Paige play that awkward gimmick and Bayley was so cute!

  • Ittyx

    omg diva dirt post Paige & Bayleys! it was amazing!

  • Jared Ds

    In Love With Sasha’s Ghetto Gimmick, Hopefully It Comes On Tv! Also I Like Alexa, Lana, Becky and Veronica. My Problem With Christina Vargas Is That She’s Too OTT, She Needs To Tone The Exaggeration Down A Bit!

  • Benjamin D

    Does anyone have a link of this? I totally missed out on it.

  • DivasChampAJ

    Speaking of NXT.Wheres the NXT redux for the week?

    • nismos69

      • DivasChampAJ

        NXT airs Tuesdays!

        • shamaramill

          No it doesn’t it, airs on Wednesdays!

          • Benjamin D

            There won’t be a NXT redux this week, because there isn’t a divas match on NXT this week.

          • DivasChampAJ

            It is its Sasha vs Bayley.

          • Benjamin D

            Nope, that’s next week.

          • DivasChampAJ

            Oh Ok!

          • SimplyDivaLicious

            Will there be a backstage segment with the NXT divas?

          • Benjamin D

            Just watched this week’s NXT on Hulu and the answer is no.

          • SimplyDivaLicious

            That sucks! :(

          • DivasChampAJ

            Over here its tuesdays.

  • jeff perez

    I loved Paige’s and Bayley’s even thought they aren’t posted on here……

    • DivaDestiny

      Me too. I think I would actually like Paige if that was her character, haha.

      • BorisG

        Well she could be good, but her AntiDiva gimmick fits her better, I don’t wanna see her as comedy face/heel.

  • DivasChampAJ

    Lmao I watched Paige and Bailey one it was amazing!!

  • Benjamin D

    Sasha is the BOSS!

    • DivasChampAJ

      Summer is!

      • Benjamin D

        Summer is the Queen, Sasha is the BOSS!

        • DivasChampAJ

          Summer School session has just begun ;)

          • Benjamin D

            I’ll take her summer classes any day of the week, even on Sundays.

          • BorisG

            That’s right.

  • PopOff

    Is it weird I want Paige and Bayley to become a female Hell No?

    • DivasChampAJ

      That would be awesomem

    • Randi Parker

      I loved theirs!

    • BorisG

      OMG yes.

    • WorkAlone
