10 Forgotten WWE NXT Stars

10 WWE NXT stars you completely forgot about

For every WWE NXT star that makes a name for themselves either in WWE's developmental system or later as a member of WWE’s main roster, there are about 10 candidates who won’t make it past a certain level – if they even get on television in the first place. 

With so much talent coming through the doors of the WWE Performance Center, it’s inevitable that some of them aren’t quite going to break through and have the impactful NXT career that they (as well as those behind the scenes) hoped for. A lot of stars have passed through Full Sail and the PC in the past decade, but you may struggle to recall the following. 

These are 10 Forgotten WWE NXT Stars! 

10. Jake Carter

Wrestlers following in the footsteps of a famous family member must feel a real burden to not just continue the family legacy but ensure that they don’t tarnish it. 

Jesse White – AKA NXT’s Jake Carter – had especially big shoes to fill, because he was the son of WWE Hall of Famer (and one of the best big men the business has ever seen) – Vader. A college football standout, Jesse’s gridiron dreams were unfortunately quashed by injuries, but he decided to give pro wrestling a try, doing some indies and then working in Japan (often teaming with his father) before WWE came calling and signed him to a developmental deal. 

Jake Carter’s time in Florida Championship Wrestling was fruitful, as he bagged tag gold with fellow prospect Corey Graves. Things went awry when FCW rebranded to NXT, though, as Carter went solo as ‘your girlfriend’s favourite’. He was winless on the brand and would ultimately get released after failing to catch on and (allegedly) irking the writers with unwanted storyline pitches.
