While aging icons tend to occupy WWE headlines, in this article, we are going to shine the spotlight on 10 best professional wrestlers under the age of 25.
1. Velveteen Dream
Velveteen Dream from Washington DC is a 24-year-old prospect who seems to be destined for big things. As one of the most compelling and eccentric characters WWE has produced in recent years, “The Dream” looks like a rare can’t miss star.
The former NXT North American Champion is athletic, charismatic, and also incredibly entertaining. Truthfully, if a promotion could build up a wrestler from the group, it would probably look much like the Velveteen Dream, who has received praise for his peers and pundits alike. Fans all expect to see the Velveteen Dream headlining WrestleMania as soon as possible.
2. Rhea Ripley
Rhea Ripley, who is only 23 years old, is one of the fast-rising performers in NXT as well as the entire WWE roster. South Australia, the native of Adelaide, also had a breakout year in 2019 and hasn’t shown any slowing down signs.
At the present, Ripley appears poised to take the next step toward becoming a major star. She is currently set to face Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 36, which may suggest that the talented Aussie has been on the cusp of being one of the division’s key players.
3. Deonna Purrazzo
New Jersey’s Deonna Purrazzo has been honing her craft for years while working with major promotions such as Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor. She took the next step in her career by signing with WWE in May of 2018. 25-year-old Purazzon has been known commodity among wrestling fans for years.
The Fujiwara armbar specialist has a unique style and a lot of experience performing on professional wrestling’s brightest stages. She hasn’t really been given an opportunity to shine in WWE, but if that time comes, this talented ring will undoubtedly be ready to capitalize.
