Favorite WWE Moments in 2012
6) Seth Rollins Becomes the 1st NXT Champion
The WWE hyping up a developmental title was practically unheard of until the NXT Championship came along. The ‘E had huge Superstars from the main roster cut promos on how becoming the first NXT Championship would be a monumental moment in history, a massive stepping stone to the main roster. The entire NXT roster was there to watch the match, and, to top it off, Triple H and Dusty Rhodes were there to crown Seth with the prize. As for Seth, he’s not the best talker. He doesn’t have the best character. He doesn’t have the best charisma. But there is something infectious about him that makes fans like myself get behind him. Seth may not be all of those things, but he is the only man who can say he was the first NXT Champion, and that alone speaks for itself.
