Tye Dillinger: Bio
Amid a sea of fives, sixes and the occasional seven, one Superstar alone can be rated The Perfect 10. At least, that’s how Tye Dillinger views the playing field of NXT, the place where the calculating ring veteran plies his well-honed trade. Endlessly confident, the silky-smooth Dillinger thinks nothing of stopping a bout mid-match to grade his own performance. (Hint: It’s always 10 out of 10.)
Yet, the native of Niagara Falls, Canada, backs up his brash demeanor with a deliberate approach inside the ring that has earned him the respect of his peers and the NXT Universe. When he’s not launching into celebratory cartwheels or holding up scorecards, Dillinger can usually be seen picking apart his opponents, cranking on their limbs or jarring their skulls with aplomb.
No matter his competition, Dillinger always poses a threat, as evidenced by his closely fought contests against NXT’s elite, including Sami Zayn and Apollo Crews. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of holds and the discipline needed to apply them flawlessly, it’s hard to argue that Tye Dillinger is anything less than perfect.
