WWE management is reportedly high on Julius and Brutus Creed, Von Wagner, and Xyon Quinn, with The Creed Brothers seen as potential WrestleMania headliners.

This is according to Dave Meltzer in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, who writes that Julius has drawn Kurt Angle comparisons internally. He has picked up pro wrestling very quickly since entering WWE and is described as "very smart", hence the company's faith in him, with Angle (perhaps the most natural rookie in pro wrestling history) a lofty comparison.

The Creed Brothers have been active on WWE television since the 7 September 2021 episode of NXT, when they were introduced as part of Diamond Mine with Roderick Strong, Malcolm Bivens, and the since-released Hideki 'Hachiman' Suzuki.

With regards to Wagner and Quinn, management is high on the duo on account of size and height. For now, WWE are being forgiving of their inexperience between the ropes, hopeful that this aspect of their performances will improve in time.

Wagner has enjoyed a strong televised focus since NXT's September transition into 2.0, first through his partnership and feud with Kyle O'Reilly, and now as a singles heel. Quinn, meanwhile, recently wrapped a storyline with Legado del Fantasma.
