So, most of you have probably heard about the recent WWE signings, but how many of you have actually seen these wrestlers in action? Even though the three confirmed signings have extensive experience in the top indies, for many, NXT is about as "obscure" as their viewing habits get, and that's okay. Not everyone has the time, money, or desire to follow independent wrestling the way that others do. However, you might want to get a lead on what you might be seeing in NXT once those wrestlers get to the main televised narrative. That is where I come in.

The first wrestler to showcase is Rich Swann, who is one of the most exciting high flying prospects to come into WWE in a long time, even more exciting than PAC/Adrian Neville. He's been around the block in promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, but he made his bread and butter in Combat Zone Wrestling. Much like Extreme Championship Wrestling wasn't all just barbed wire and chairshots, CZW has a bit of variety to it as well. Swann is shown here wrestling against one of the few wrestlers in the indies who might fly higher than he does and who definitely is crazier than he is, AR Fox. Check it out and get acquainted with a guy who could become one of your new favorites.
