Name: Connor Braxton
Aliases: Xavier Church
Birthplace: Bettendorf, IA
Aerial: Braxton moves very well for a big man. His comfort and fluidity in the air may be a result of his training with Seth Rollins at the Black and the Brave Academy in Iowa. He should make an effort to showcase that more in matches.
Appearance: Connor has fantastic height and decent muscle definition. He could add some more upper-body bulk, especially if he wants to position himself as a power wrestler. Although, if he wants to be a flyer then he probably want to keep any excess weight off.
Charisma: I think Braxton has a lot of potential in this area. He seems outgoing enough to be very talented on the microphone. However, for me he comes off as too goofy and too over-the-top. Also, he currently has little character to speak. Although, if he can dial in his delivery and add some depth to his persona, I believe this will be his strength.
Power: Connor has good, but not great power. He’s larger than most of his opponents, so he uses that to his advantage. But, he only sprinkles in a few power moves sporadically.
Technical: He tends to shy away from working on the mat and chain wrestling. Additionally, his striking is inconsistent, sometimes landing softly or looking weak. It appears to be a work in progress for him and I expect to see improvement in the near future.
Overview: Athletically speaking he is remarkably gifted. He also has the potential to be exceptional in multiple areas, which is rare. He needs to continue to craft his skills and he needs to develop more of a character than just being a big man. That being said, at his young age and his current trajectory, he should find himself with a major promotion rather quickly.
