The WWE NXT Superstar Tommy Dreamer Says Is “The Next Mickie James”

The WWE NXT Superstar Tommy Dreamer Says Is

In a highly anticipated matchup, TNA Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace has been named the next challenger for Roxanne Perez’s WWE NXT Women’s Championship. This announcement has sparked excitement across the wrestling community, with TNA producer and ECW legend Tommy Dreamer offering his insights on the impending clash.

Dreamer reflected on Perez’s journey from TNA to NXT during an episode of Busted Open Radio. He drew a compelling comparison between Perez and the iconic Mickie James, praising Perez for her captivating personality and television readiness.

I just saw this amazing performer who was so young and so already TV ready, then all of a sudden, she shows up in NXT. I couldn’t be happier for her and I compared her to, she’s the next Mickie James. She has that personality and this heel run that I see her having, I never saw that. Which is like when Bully Ray says, sometimes do the unexpected and it works.

Dreamer recounted a pivotal moment in Perez’s career: her title-for-title match against Deonna Purrazzo in January 2022. This match highlighted Perez’s potential and marked a significant step in her wrestling journey. Following this intense showdown, Dreamer advocated for Perez to join TNA Wrestling, recognising her talent and potential impact on the promotion. However, Perez ultimately chose to sign with WWE, making her debut on the NXT brand in April of the same year.

Which Other WWE NXT Match Did Tommy Dreamer Have High Praise For?

Tommy Dreamer praised a segment in 2023 on NXT which saw Bron Breakker challenge then WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins to a match for his title at NXT Gold Rush. Dreamer had high praise for the buildup to the match and thought that the match had the potential to be one of the best in NXT history.
