...He's over with the crowd in one state. Everyone else, aside from us smarks (who make up a small proportion of the audience) has no fucking clue who he is. If he debuted on Raw tomorrow he'd get crickets. Hell, the vignettes that are airing in NXT (taped in the same state) are airing to ensure he gets a reaction.
Even when NXT did
tour the states the guys weren't over. Putting it in Florida made it less relevent for the SD guys, because even less of the audience is going to watch.
