WWE could debut a Superstar tonight on NXT that goes on to do big things in the company. There are a lot of high hopes that Ridge Holland will be something special.

Holland is in a qualifying match this week on NXT to compete in the NXT North American Title ladder match at NXT TakeOver: XXX. Holland, a former professional rugby league footballer, is ready to show everyone what he is capable of.

During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez noted that he’s heard that Ridge Holland is the next big thing.

“We have a North American Title qualifying match with Damien Priest, Oney Lorcan, and Ridge Holland. By the way, I’ve had a lot of people emailing me about Ridge Holland. They think that he has the potential to be the next big thing which is, that’s saying something. So we’ll see.”


WWE is always looking for that next big Superstar. Ridge Holland could have what it takes, but nothing is certain until WWE gives him a try in the very unpredictable world of pro wrestling.

Sometimes labeling someone as the next big thing is a good way to hype them into failure. We’ll just have to see how Ridge Holland is booked from this point on. He has the potential to go right into an NXT North American Title match at NXT TakeOver: XXX.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
