10 wrestlers who made the best impression on me in the MYC (in no particular order):
1. Abbey Laith. She played an incredible underdog in the first round, and she continued to have impressive showings until her eventual elimination.
2. Is Bianca Belair seriously just 1 year into her wrestling career? Because she was fantastic, especially against Kairi Sane.
3. Toni Storm. I had never actually seen her wrestle before the MYC, but I had heard about her, and she definitely lives up to the hype.
4. I love Candice Lerae. She showed what she was made of, and i loved the spot with her and Johnny after her elimination.
5. Tessa Blanchard really impressed me. I remembered her being in some NXT match before, but it was cool seeing her flaunt a heel character and have an impressive showing.
6. I wasn’t expecting much from Piper Niven (maybe the typical big, dominant superstar character like Nia Jax) but she pleasantly surprised me. Piper was fantastic in the MYC. I’d love to see her wrestle in the WWE again.
7. Dakota Kai was awesome in her matches. She played a great underdog, and she’s an amazing wrestler. She’s another one I’d love to see signed to NXT.
8. One of the MYC’s 2nd gen stars, Rachel Evers was pretty awesome. For some reason, she kind of slipped past my attention when I heard about the wrestlers participating, but she certainly got it back when I saw her wrestle.
9. Kairi Sane, of course. I knew she’d be fantastic, but since I had never seen a full match with her, I didn’t know what to expect. Needless to say, she blew me away, and she more than deserved to walk home the victor.
10. Lacey Evans has a lot of potential. I really like her outfit, and everything she has going on, and since I had seen her wrestle in NXT I already knew she had the skill to back it up. It was really cool seeing her display it in the MYC, though. I think she has a bright future.
Of course, there are other wrestlers I liked in the MYC like Mercedes Martinez, Princess Sugehit, and of course Shayna Baszler. But I could only choose 10 photos lol, and these are my top favorites from the tournament. Who were your favorites?
