You can definitely tell there's a different booking mentality in NXT as opposed to in WWE proper, and so far it's been pretty hit-or-miss which NXT talents are going to be booked well when they get called up. The Shield and the Wyatt family have absolutely dominated since they came up, Big E Langston has done pretty well for himself, and I love what they've been doing with Bo Dallas and Adam Rose. On the other hand, Xavier Woods is a jobber who doesn't even have his own theme song, Alexander Rusev has gotten stuck with a generic evil Russian gimmick (which is pretty bizarre considering that in real life he's a Bulgarian who's lived in America since the '90s and practices Islam), and Emma has become a female version of Santino Marella.

I think we can all agree that the most anticipated NXT call-up will be that of the bookers and producers.
