Since watching NXT from the start of the rebranding in 2013, Tye Dillinger had been with the company for over 3-4 years. He left after ECW folded but returned to NXT in 2013 as Tye Dillinger. In ECW, he was a jobber under the name of Gavin Spears. Since returning to NXT he has been featured on his own, a tag team with Jason Jordan and now on his own again.
As a tag team with Jason Jordan I thought they were a decent tag team but they just didn’t have any chemistry. They took two guys with talent and put them together but it just never gelled. Jason Jordan would go on to form a tag team with Chad Gable and is currently one half of the NXT Tag Team Champions. Dillinger has reinvented himself as “The Perfect 10” Tye Dillinger. Since he rebranded himself he has been a glorified jobber and has lost to newcomers such as Apollo Crews, Austin Aries, Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura.
As “The Perfect 10” persona Dillinger has been over with the NXT crowd and has put on good matches. Dillinger has the talent to be a rising star in the company but when he just loses weekly and can't build any momentum it’s an uphill battle. Besides the incoming independent talent NXT has no home grown talent that is bigger then Tye Dillinger.
NXT eventually will have a midcard championship and I think Dillinger would be the perfect competitor to win it. He has been with the company from 2006-2009 and with NXT since 2013 and still hasn’t won anything of notoriety. The WWE needs to continue to develop new talent and I think if they reevaluate NXT they will realize that Tye Dillinger is their top homegrown singles talent. He deserves a push of some sort and I think the NXT Universe will continue to support “The Perfect 10."
