The Miz and Mizdow – played by Michael “Mike” Mizanin (“The Miz”) and Aaron Steven Haddad (“Damien Mizdow”). The impersonating stunt double is nearly a foot taller, bearded, and looks nothing like the actor. He’s been demoted from stunt double to “personal assistant.” Mizdow is a fan favorite goofball. They are AWE SOME. (Photo by Megan Elice Meadows)
New Day – played by Kofi Nahaje Sarkodie-Mensah (“Kofi Kingston”), Ettore Ewen (“Big E”), and Austin Watson (“Xavier Watson”). Gospel-themed tag team, which finally got over, even with a trombone (Photo by Megan Elice Meadows).
The Ascension – played by Connor O’Brian and Rick Victor. Goofy makeup, dressed in Mad Max garb. They aren’t tough or threatening. This gimmick doesn’t work. Pretty soon, they will be welcomed to the wasteland – NXT. (Photo by Anton Jackson)
Gold & Stardust – played by Dustin Patrick Runnels and Cody Garrett Runnels – sons of Dusty Rhodes. Spooky makeup, hissing, and leather outfits. Nice gimmick. Currently, there is a family feud between the half brothers. (Photo by Megan Elice Meadows)
Los Matadores – aka Diego and Fernando, played by Edwin Carlos “Eddie” Colon and Orlando Colon. They are often accompanied by the vertically challenged El Torito. Tag Team jobbers. (Photo by Miguel Discart)
The Prime Time Players – played by Titus O’Neil and Darren Young. Portrayed as brash athletes with allegedly comedic skits. Titus O’Neil was suspended for insulting Vince, the McMahon-child (Photo by Miguel Discart).
