NXT is the place to be right now, with the WWE developmental division putting on some of the best wrestling in the World.

Complete with most of the biggest indy wrestling stars from around the globe - with the likes of Finn Balor, Hideo Itami, Apollo Crews and more all currently showcasing their talents at Full Sail.

It's not just the singles performers who are making waves, but the tag team division as well. The Vaudevillains currently hold the belts, but Enzo and Big Cass, The Hype Bros and Blake and Murphy have all impressed in recent months. And then, there is Jason Jordan and Chad Gable.

Love for Gable and Jordan

They've only been a tag team for a month or two, but the pair of former amateur wrestlers have made an excellent start to their NXT careers, connecting with fans straight from the off.

And Jordan & Gable have a famous fan, Jim Ross. The WWE legend was writing in his most recent blog when he mentioned the up-and-comers. And it seems that J.R is fully behind the two.

J.R's a Fan

"Really liking the up-side of NXT's Jason Jordan and Chad Gable either as a team or positioned as individuals," he wrote. "Seems to me that Jordan, former Indiana Hoosier heavyweight, has been ready for a good while."

It's not just J.R who likes the pair, the Full Sail crowd is loving the team, especially Gable, who gets his name chanted to the tune of Kurt Angle's music at every match - a high compliment from the fans.

Whilst he is a big fan of the duo, Ross went on to add that it doesn't matter if you're the most talented person in NXT, unless you are introduced in a strong and effective manner then you'll be a bust.

"Nonetheless all talents are better suited to stay in NXT until WWE creative has a grand way to introduce them. In today's marketplace one's introduction and their first 6 months of their call up are essential."

You just have to look at the contrasting fortunes of Kevin Owens and Adrian Neville. Owens immediately went into a feud that saw him deliver a pop-up powerbomb to John Cena on his first night, then beat Cena clean in his first match. And then there's Neville, who had a feud with Stardust and now just lingers in a makeshift tag-team with Cesaro.
