For any wrestling fans that has been paying attention as of late, NXT has been on fire.

The Yellow Brand of WWE is arguably the best wrestling product on the planet right now and the talent that Triple H has managed to cultivate in Orlando, Florida is quite astounding.

Of course, NXT gets its fair share of talents from the indies who simply need to be polished in the WWE style or nuance their character, but there as also in-house success stories.

One of those NXT made superstars is Lars Sullivan.

The 30-year-old came onto WWE's radar in 2013 after fellow Colorado-native and then-TNA superstar Bobby Lashley recommended him to the company.

After being signed to NXT, Sullivan has gone on to become one of the main attractions in WWE's supposed developmental territory and it was announced during Survivor Series that he will be making his main roster debut soon.

While it is still unknown what brand he will be appearing on, it's been clear for a while what the WWE thinks of their Freak.

Lars Sullivan

According to Sports Illustrated, WWE think so much of Sullivan that they had Brock Lesnar visit the performance center in 2015 to personally work with him. Lesnar had never been to the performance center before and he hasn't been since.

Sullivan strikes quite the resemblance to Lesnar in the sense they are both 6'3" and build like absolute powerhouses. If Wikipedia is anything to go by, Sullivan is actually 20lbs heavier, too.

Dave Meltzer has suggested that Sullivan is in line for a 'super push' on the main roster and it would be no surprise to see him have a rookie year like Lesnar did back in 2002.

Sullivan actually failed to win any gold in NXT despite running Aleister Black mightily close for the NXT title earlier this year and taking part in the six-man ladder match for the North American title during WrestleMania weekend.
