The UE is by far my favorite faction of any kind. I love every single member so so much! The chemistry that these guys have is absolutely unmatched and the fact that the original three (Adam, Bobby, and Kyle) were all in Ring of Honor together is just so awesome. Bobby and Kyle's old tag-team ReDRagon in ROH is the first team in history to hold titles in WWE, NJPW, and ROH and that makes me so happy for them. In NXT I'm absolutely loving these guys' domination over the tag division. They all have such charisma that extends beyond working as a group and I love seeing any of them on screen whether solo or together. Kyle is my favorite member, though I do love them all very much, but I just adore the little air guitar he does with the belt in his entrance. UE forever baybay < 3

I love Johnny Gargano! I have genuinely cried over this man at least three times during PPVs because of how much the Ciampa/Gargano rivalry moved me. Whether it was happiness, despair, you name it, I have cried while watching two half naked men throw each other around just because Gargano was one of them. Him and his wife Candice LeRae are like these two rays of sunshine and whenever I see them I'm like ^-^!! Johnny is such an awesome wrestler and no matter how many times I see him fight stinky old Ciampa it never gets old. He's a true friend always and that's part of why the rivalry hurts me so bad. Anyways I love him very much period.
His birthday is August 14th (a Leo).
Signature moves: Lawn Dart, Crosston Crab (Cross-legged Boston crab), Garga-No-Escape (chickenwing over the shoulder crossface), swinging reverse STO, double knee strike, double knee backbreaker.
Aleister was one of my favorites from the first match I saw him in. The way he's able to deliver such focused and powerful blows while remaining graceful(?) enough to do flips and MMA kicks ... he's just such a badass! When he lands in the cross-legged position I'm always like 0_0 because it's so awesome and never gets old. Watching him is always a new experience and his matches are rarely boring. Not to mention his tattoos, holy crap! I love his body art and how it sets him apart from other tattooed wrestlers ( except CM Punk ) who usually just have tribal ones or a giant fugly sword a la Brock Lesnar. I luv luv luv Aleister and him and his wife Zelina Vega's youtube channel is genuinely so sweet and awesome. I would defend this man with my life, period.
His birthday is May 19th (a Taurus).
Signature moves: Black Mass, brainbuster, discus knee strike, deadlift German suplex, springboard moonsault.
Of the NJPW stuff I've seen, Kenny is one of my favorites. His work in Bullet Club as the 'Cleaner' and with Kota Ibushi as the Golden Lovers is all just so incredible. He turns these shows into an anime and his personality is just absolutely unmatched whether he's playing a heel or a face. I watched a documentary (Omega Man) about him and I just admire his absolute love for wrestling so much. The way he incorporates other things he likes like anime and videogames into his persona and demeanor is so awesome and his presence is so wonderful to see both in and outside the ring. Also that clip of him wrestling a 9-year-old is the funniest thing ever. ALSO he dressed as Sans in an entrance.
His birthday is October 16th (a total Libra).
Signature moves: Croyt's Wrath, Katayoku no Tenshi / One-Winged Angel (one-handed electric chair driver), Aoi Shoudou (cross-legged fisherman buster), dragon suplex
[with Kota Ibushi] Golden Shower (simultaneous 450 splashes from the same turnbuckle).
I absolutely love Kairi so damn much. Her pirate character is one of the best 'gimmicks' I've ever seen, it fits her personality and zeal so well. Any event is instantly improved by her presence; she's genuinely always so happy and in good spirits and she has an unbridled confidence that's so adorable and lovable. She's the cutest person ever and her insane elbow is literally one of my favorite moves ever (funny how three of my favs do an elbow drop ,,). Her and Asuka as a tag-team is the best thing ever and I'm really sad that she left WWE recently to be with her husband but all that matters in life is her happiness to be honest. Stan her for clear skin!!!
Her birthday is September 23rd (a Libra!).
Signature moves: Insane Elbow, Anchor, 4173 (bridging Gedo clutch), double leg slam, spear.
