15. AJ Sanchez
“Big Sexy Beast” AJ Sanchez was trained by Rob Stardom and Johnny Devine, and made his in ring debut at the age of sixteen. Sanshez trained with El Gran Apache and former WCW Superstar Silver King under AAA in Mexico City in late 2012. Sanchez took part in the 2013 George Tragos/Lou Thesz WWE Evaluation Camp with guest evaluators Jim Ross and Gerald Brisco.
His notable opponents include Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, Hardcore Holly, Nikolai Volkoff, Hurricane Helms, Buff Bagwell, Honky Tonk Man, Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro), Carlito, Bushwhacker Luke, Tito Santana, Gangrel, Eugene, Dan Severn, Petey Williams, Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, Kenny Omega, Jimmy Jacobs, Sonjay Dutt, and Nigel Mcguiness.
He was described to us as, “(he) can often be seen diving off the top rope in to the ring and to the floor is known for his signature second rope moonsault. Perhaps most notably known for his ultra charismatic demeanor, Sanchez can often be seen running his mouth on his opponents and members of the audience. ”
