WATCH: WWE Teasing the Arrival of an “Ominous Force” Coming Soon to NXT


As seen on this week’s episode of NXT television, WWE is now teasing a new “ominous force” coming very soon!

There’s been a ton of speculation on who might be behind the mystery character since the teaser first ran on Wednesday night, but so far no conclusive reports. Several popular theories include former ROH star Donovan Dijak who signed with the company in September, German wrestler Axel Dieter Jr., and former Impact Wrestling star Rockstar Spud. All are viable options, although it’s been widely reported that Spud is being brought in to join the 205 Live roster.

Another top name that it might be is the “Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler, which would make a lot of sense given the spades in the vignette.

Who do you think is being his new “ominous force” set to invade NXT? Sound off in the comments section down below.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it is Rockstar Spud. I knew that he had left TNA but I was unaware of the other two, that is how I’m basing my answer.

    I remember the days when debut vignettes were drawn out and awesome. Bring back Bruce!

    • Lee Walker

      Those were the days! That is something WWE needs to bring back!

      They have started to get back to that on the main roster. They are running promo packages for Hideo. Hopefully it helps because his NXT run was pretty lackluster, with all his injuries and whatnot.

    I am just gonna assume it’s Shayna Baszler. She is already using that Spade gimmick and if it’s true that Ronda Rousey is close to signing even a one time match deal then it makes the most sense to bring Baszler in soon to show what one of the “MMA horsewomen” can do to make Ronda’s arrival seem even more important.

    You’re telling me that was supposed to be a woman’s silhouette?

    It’s Axel Dieter Jr
