Wrestlemania last year with Rusev coming out in a tank and basically recreating the Cold War against cena for the us championship was fantastic. Also at some point in the last year Rusev got in a fight with his promoter that was hooking up with Ziggler and he threw a fish at her in what has to be the greatest wwe moment I've ever witnessed. I know you didn't say you like Rusev, but I honestly think he's the greatest thing wwe has going for it.
I'm also a big fan of the ridiculousness of reigns "cocking" his superman punch though, to put into perspective the cartoonishness that I want out of my wrestling.
Main Roster: Braun Stroman Kevin Owens Tyler Breeze Titus O'Neil
NXT: Sami Zayn
Anyone got an matches they recommend with these folks?
Due to my delay in response (-my apologies!) I don't know if you still enjoy all of the people on that list. I think a lot of people became less impressed with Braun Stroman as they saw more of him. (There's a story circulating that his entry into the main roster was a shock to the trainers at NXT because he had the least experience and in-ring ability.) And poor Titus O'Neil received a 90 day suspension for "touching" Vince McMahon during Daniel Bryan's retirement show. Poor guy has been off the air and will still be under suspension during Wrestlemania.
But anyways, to your point, there are some great matches I can find with Owens, Breeze, Zayn, and Charlotte. Stroman hasn't had a lot of ring time to make suggestions, and unfortunately I can't find any Titus matches that went longer than 3:30. If I stumble across any good matches, I'll send them your way.
I think the best match to send your way is the Fatal 4-way between Tyler Breeze, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, and Tyson Kidd from NXT Takeover 2 in 2014: www.dailymotion.com/video/x25yu3j_adrian-neville-c-vs-sami-zayn-vs-tyson-kidd-vs-tyler-breeze-nxt-takeover-2_sport All four of these guys look like stars and contenders. In the buildup on NXT episodes leading up, Neville was the champion for 7 months, and there was a three-way tie in a battle royal for #1 contender. Each of these guys thought they deserved the title. Kidd was the guy who's been around and felt overlooked and forgotten. Breeze was the "character" that captivated the audiences. Zayn was the rising hero that everyone loved, but could never pull off "the big one." ...Actually, i think the link I posted has a recap of those events. Renee Young was calling the play-by-play at the time. I think we need more Renee Young. She is a delight.
Charlotte has had a number of great matches in her very short career. She had only been wrestling about 2 years when she became champ. That is absolutely unreal. And seeing her NXT debut (-as a smiling, flexible gymnast) transition into a dominant NXT champ- pretty amazing evolution. Here are some matches I like a lot:
