things in wrestling you need to know number 10 ace Austin of impact and mlw 22 year old ace Austin is the kind of wrestler that would have thrived in TNA is most marketable niche ten years ago a fast fluid and exciting high flyer he is x-division to a tee now Austin is still waiting for his breakthrough in a couple of losses to tjp haven’t really helped him but what’s most encouraging about him is that he already possesses several traits that can’t be taught he has the intangibles down showing great charisma and the all-important x-factor regularly since he signed with Impact already on his way to becoming a fully farmed three-dimensional star all Austin needs is for his employers to invest in him number 9 angel Garza of WWE rechristened under his new moniker the former Garza jr. debuted in William Regals breakout tournament on 26th of June episode of NXT smooth slick sleazy and charismatic he entered a crowd popping performance against joking wild highlighted by his own version of Taichi from new Japan’s pants tearing spots he leaked charm and magnetism in his pre match interview as well suggesting that if he tightens his cadence up gar is gonna be a huge huge star he’s good looking at decent size at 6 foot 1/2 oh seven pounds and has already demonstrated his ability to connect in full sail doing so in larger buildings will prove tougher but he has passed every test so far and while he lost a fellow newcomer Jordan miles in the tournament 2nd round big things should be coming soon number 9 ooh Tommy hey Ishita of stardom stardom have felt the loss of top stars like Kyrie Seine and Yoshi Rai in recent years but they keep soldiering on building new stars in their wake with 20-year old Tommy hey Ishita one of several to be elevated the Tommy is the least experienced wrestler on our list she has less than a year under her belt but performs with an aptitude far beyond her years The Watcher is to witness one of the decades most impressive rookies blessed with good size her impactful judo based offense strong selling heart and facials are already excellent and although she’s far from complete Hayashi Sheeta hasn’t looked out of place at all in Japan’s most popular joshi promotion who Tommy is one of those names that you’ll see consistently linked to WWE a couple of years from now well staying in Japan would probably be wise particularly as the Tokyo sport Rookie of the Year has already held two titles in stardom number 7 LGI hotel viking o of triply ah if you know this fellas name it’s probably for his awesome trip Lee a clash with the little kid back in June check it out if you haven’t already it’s on YouTube it’s absolutely rife with giftable moments supreme coordination and the kind of spots that only the most careful and precise fliers in the world can pull off it’s an elite level clash that had gone down on a big New Japan re W show was probably be garnering match of the year level hype all across the internet matches like that take an incredible level of technique such outrageous video game stuff is precisely what Phi King all deals in so if that’s how your tastes are attuned educate yourself on the guy immediately regarded among the finest wrestlers in Mexico at the moment this fella has already been linked with several American promotions he won’t be unknown for long so now’s the ideal time to take notice number 60 on a Perazzo of WWE NXT s women’s division is in good health now device if she may be but Sheena Besler is an effective alpha bully as the divisions ace Helio Shura is a lot more interesting than face II you sure I can dis Laurie is as solid as ever Bianca bel-air looks like a killer this goes some way to explaining Dianna parados lack of use the virtuosa has only made NXT TV twice since signing in May 2018 with the last of those appearances coming last August a shame but there isn’t enough room at the table for every talented performer at the same time when she finally goes full time on TV Perazzo will immediately be one of NXT x’ best technicians she’s smoother than butter has great technique possesses a strong grasp of psychology might even build her character around her nickname the Fujiwara armbar specialist stylistically she could well become a more scientific less brutish version of Besler but she’s already more refined in the ring than the majority of her peers number 5 Benkei of Dragon Gate o Dragon Gate is best known for his lightning-fast hyper athletic fusion of Lucha Libre and Japanese junior heavyweight wrestling Benkei is a straight up horse he’s far bulkier than the majority of his cohorts who he regularly throws around the ring as if they were weightless in a role not totally dissimilar to company legend Shingo Takagi oh they’re characters couldn’t really be more different Benkei has stood out as an imposing future star since emerging in 2016 in Dragon Gate quest to find their new ace he absolutely surged earlier this year winning the 2019 king of gate tournament over re D leader ater earning him a shot at former stablemates pact and has opened the dream gate title at Kobe World which is roughly dragon gates equivalent of WrestleMania triumph followed Benkei now sits atop a mountain in Japan’s second biggest promotion and at 27 years old he has decades in front of him the newly minted ace is destined to become one of his country’s biggest stars outside of new Japan number four Jacob fought two of mlw anyone who spent longer than a minute engrossed in pro wrestling lore should understand the appeal of Jacob fuh – trained by his uncle Rikishi the Samoan werewolf is a product of the legendary annawadi wrestling dynasty his father is the former Tonga kid the Usos are his cousins and Umaga whom he most resembles stylistically was his uncle that’s a lot of pedigree but would mean little if Batu couldn’t back it up between the ropes thankfully he can with an approach reminiscent of many a family member Jacob is a big beefy boy but no plaughter he’s surprisingly athletic his offense is sharp and impactful he’s a home in a brawl as he isn’t a beef slapping big guy fight and he carries the same level of intimidation you may have felt from Umaga back in the day Batou recently took mlw s– world heavyweight title he’s now standing talent to one of the most promising guys on the Indies today so it’s no surprise that WWE are already sniffing after him number three Jordan amok Baron of WWE Big Show seven-foot Andre the Giant six for 11 to 7 foots the Great Khali 751 inch Kevin Nash six foot ten now these are some big beefy boys but Jordan or Marc Bohan is bigger and beefier than all of them standing at a legit seven foot three the guy’s a monster and absolute unit a behemoth a beast he’s one of the tallest men to ever set foot in a WWE ring meaning the Vince McMahon is almost certainly gonna push him to the moon as soon as he gets eyes on him now the former basketball player is only just getting started I mean like right now and there’s very limited footage of him he clearly has a lot of work to do but still look at him he’s a skyscraper Vince McMahon likes tall things – let’s hope he develops number two Joe Henry of Ring of Honor perhaps the most well-known name on this list is Joe Hendry it was just debuted in Ring of Honor after years as one of the most charismatic wrestlers on the British Indies the prestigious one should be well known to anyone who has followed companies like icw and Defiant over the past few years but he has also worked multiple shows for impact wrestling in the past and even represented his country as an amateur freestyle wrestler at the 2018 Commonwealth Games he’s a great talker as well and more than that a skilled musician known not only for composing his own entrance themes but hilarious ridiculous videos cutting his opponents down with trademark humor and we can’t wait to see what he does know that he’s finally getting a proper go as a signed wrestler in America and number one can you skate a caseta of DDT destined to become one of Japan’s most revered wrestlers within the next few years Kanishka Takeshita is the ace of DDT and the current kod openweight champion DDT fans have known him as one of the world’s best big match wrestlers for ages while Outsiders only really recognized DDT for its comedy the likes of Takeshi Tahara Shima and Daisuke Sasaki have helped craft a dramatic main event style that really isn’t all that far removed from New Japan and their epics and that this stage Takeshita is the clear leader of the pack with his explosiveness mad skills and ability to make every opponent look like a million dollars making him the most important piece in DDT’s puzzle there’s a real chance that Takeshita might go his whole career without leaving DDT loyalty is a big big deal in Japan where promotional jumps are extremely rare this may be the only thing stopping him from reaching the same level as a guy like Kazuko cada he certainly talented enough an exposure and further seasoning are all he needs
