Watch Entire NXT Wrestling Roster Pull Off Incredible ‘Mannequin Challenge’

WWE’s developmental division executes it perfectly

You’ve probably heard of the mannequin challenge by now since it is quickly becoming the biggest trend on social media. But if you haven’t, all you need to know about it is it involves people striking a pose and standing absolutely still for a short video that fits perfectly on the likes of Twitter and Instagram.

You know, like they are mannequins.

In the sports world alone, it’s already provided some hilarious moments even though the challenge hasn’t been around for very long. For example, the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys and Kentucky Wildcats fans all gave it a shot last week and executed it perfectly. The result was thousands of shares and millions of views.

Now it’s the WWE’s turn to take on the mannequin challenge, and they may have put together the best attempt yet. In a two minute video that takes place in the WWE Performance Center located in Orlando, Florida, the crew showed off the NXT roster doing a variety of things like going hard in the weight room, dabbing in the middle of ringside interviews and pulling each other’s hair out. The video has already generated over 350,000 views on YouTube in one day, and it’s still climbing.
