NXT is filled with talented women aiming to become part of the WWE divas division. Already this year, Paige, Lana and Emma have graduated to the main roster, and more women are soon to follow. Here are five competitors in the NXT women's division who could become top WWE divas.
Bayley is unquestionably the most popular women’s competitor in NXT, and has the in-ring skills to succeed in the WWE as well. Despite Bayley’s immense popularity with the NXT fans, though, her lovable, hugable character may not translate well to the WWE Universe. Her persona must evolve and her mic skills will need to improve before she earns a promotion. Also, she doesn’t have the model appearance that many of the WWE divas possess.
Becky Lynch has been competing all over the world for nearly a dozen years and she has the pedigree to succeed in the WWE. The Dublin native began competing at age 15, and she debuted in NXT earlier this year with a short-lived Irish jig gimmick. She has since adopted a punk rocker look reminiscent of Lita’s. Lynch’s skills in the ring are apparent, but she will need to find a niche with her character to enjoy a successful career in the WWE.
Bliss, just 23, is new to professional wrestling but boasts an extensive athletic background. She participated in softball, track, kickboxing and gymnastics, and has also enjoyed success as a competitive bodybuilder. Despite her diminutive size (5-foot-1, 102 pounds), she has shown the physical attributes in the ring to eventually become a talented competitor. Perhaps more importantly, she already has the look that the company desires.
Being the daughter of Ric Flair instantly garnered attention for Charlotte, but she has proven to be worth the hype. She began her career in 2012 and has already captured the NXT Women’s Championship. Standing 5-foot-10, Charlotte has an athletic and chiseled physique that no other current NXT or WWE woman can match. The bloodline and the tools are there for Charlotte -- now she just needs to continue honing her persona and mic skills.
She may not have the gold to show for it, but Sasha Banks has proven to be the most complete women’s wrestler in NXT. Formerly of the BFFs, Banks has come into her own since embarking on a singles run. Her persona as “the boss” is already one of the best in the entire company, and her in-ring performance has improved markedly in recent months. Additionally, she has the look to become a top star, and at only 22, the sky is the limit for Banks.

Sheamus is the new WWE Champion. It's a surprise for sure, but don't consider this result a bad thing or a nonsensical move so quickly. Read More
