WWE NXT: All 26 Champions in Brand’s History, Ranked

2 of 26


25. The Wyatt Family

Before tearing their way through the main roster in 2013, the Wyatt Family was a force in WWE NXT. Led by Bray Wyatt, they overwhelmed the brand with their swampy, cult-like gimmick for nearly one year before moving up.

Wyatt had two members accompany him — Erick Rowan and Luke Harper. They turned out to be the only Superstars of the Family to win gold, until Harper won the Intercontinental Championship in 2014.

Unfortunately, for Rowan and Harper, their NXT Tag Team Championship reign goes down as forgettable. It lasted 70 days, making for one of the shortest title runs in NXT history. They also got upended by Adrian Neville and Corey Graves in their loss, along with Sheamus making a surprise run-in to give the babyfaces the win.

Rowan and Harper are talented Superstars, but their names won’t be brought up when discussing the greatest champions in developmental’s history. They’ve done better for themselves on the main roster, with a bright future for both.
