A big first impression

The NXT talent pool has become a who’s who of WWE’s future Superstars and Divas. From The Shield to Big E Langston, the breeding ground that is the NXT Arena has become a proven success story. For the NXT Universe, one of the joys of watching these hungry athletes is determining who will be next to make a big splash on Raw or SmackDown. On NXT, there’s a budding young Superstar from Montreal who may just top that list of standouts.

“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”  While it’s been said countless times, truly executing its meaning is easier said than done. Sami Zayn set the perfect example of making a lasting impression. 

In May, Zayn walked down the ramp of the NXT Arena and scored a victory in his debut match against Curt Hawkins. As impressive as the victory was over the former WWE Tag Team Champion, Zayn’s opportunity to make a bigger impression was just moments away. As fate would have it, WWE Superstar Antonio Cesaro began a verbal tirade over the lack of competition on NXT following his victory over Yoshi Tatsu. Despite being mere minutes removed from his debut match, Zayn not only answered Cesaro’s call for competition, but also managed to pin the former United States Champion.

“His tactics notwithstanding, Cesaro is one of the absolute best,” Zayn told WWE.com. “[Cesaro] is the perfect person to measure yourself against. When it comes to Antonio Cesaro, I welcome the challenge anytime, anyplace.”
