NXT is still finding its footing a few weeks into its rebranding as NXT 2.0 but we’ve seen quite a few new faces, and plenty of opportunity for folks to stand out. Multiple wrestlers have taken advantage of that, from the obvious like Bron Breakker to the controversial like Joe Gacy to the not-obvious-yet-but-soon-trust-me like Trick Williams (seriously, I, personally, am convinced this is the next big star in pro wrestling).
There’s one wrestler, and her group more generally, that is starting to stand out more and more as the weeks go on — the new look Mandy Rose and Toxic Attraction.
In so many ways, Rose embodies the appeal of the new look NXT. She’s got the sex appeal they’re so obviously aiming for but she’s still relatively young and has enough star power to help get the rest of her group over while she, herself, gets to improve along the way. And that improvement has been rapid.
This version of Rose is worlds better than the one we were getting on the main roster, and she should only get better.
