#12 Tino Sabbatelli

Tino Sabbatelli’s Breaking Ground appearances revolved around him overcoming a concussion and trying to prove himself in WWE NXT after a seven-year career in the NFL.

Unfortunately, injuries blighted Sabbatelli’s time in WWE and he was let go by the company in April 2020.

His most recent televised match came in July 2020 when he teamed with Brady Pierce on AEW Dark in a losing effort against Chuck Taylor and Trent.

Baron Corbin made it quite clear throughout the Breaking Ground series that he was willing to step on other people’s toes to make it to the top in WWE.

Needless to say, things worked out very well for The Lone Wolf. Not only did he have a successful run on WWE NXT television, but he has been one of the most prominent Superstars in WWE since his main-roster debut in April 2016.

Looking through the rest of the names in this article, Corbin is arguably the highest-achieving male Superstar that featured on Breaking Ground.

#10 Apollo Crews (current WWE Superstar)

Unlike many of the up-and-coming WWE Superstars on Breaking Ground, Apollo Crews had already made a name for himself under the name Uhaa Nation before he joined WWE.

Less than a year after being featured on the series, Crews debuted on WWE’s main roster in April 2016 on the post-WrestleMania 32 episode of RAW.

Although he appeared on WWE television every year from 2015 to 2019, 2020 has undoubtedly been a breakout year for Crews in WWE.
