Knox! Knox! Who's There?
Hugo Knox, that's who. I wasn't familiar with him until my good friend David sent me a batch of photos he took of the up-and-coming NXT Superstar. Turns out Knox (real name Stuart Tomlinson) is British and was a professional soccer/football player in his home country. He is also a fitness model who has been featured in several international fitness magazines. Knox made his debut with NXT last November 8th (in this video from September 2014, he still hadn't made his debut); he's still considered a newbie there and when not appearing in matches, he performs different tasks for the company. Watch him talk about making the transition from pro football to pro wrestling here. I can't wait to see more of Knox on NXT. But the polka dotted ring gear? Not my favorite thing. Couldn't NXT have given him something manlier? (More Hugo Knox coming your way on this blog's Muscle Monday post.)
