Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread
You're both right.
Kickpads and trunks doesn't mean generic, but when you have in the same roster CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Justin Gabriel, Tyson Kidd, Daniel Bryan and at a lesser extent Kofi Kingston with a similar style, I see in Seth Rollins nothing that separates him from them beyond the two-coloured hair.
There is something that makes him different. Those guys have tallent, he doesn't.
And the same goes with Richie Steamboat, but worse. He has NOTHING. If at least he utilized the gimmick of his father with the colourful dragoon-patterned full tights and the oriental theme, he should have something that stand out. But now he's pointless. Ant it's a shame because I was sincerely looking forward to him.
The thing about Richie is... he's an immature performer. Technically, he's solid as a rock. However he's really green. That match he had on NXT, that's exactly what you'll see him do in a match three times the length. However, he's also someone who you can see improve as a performer. Back when his run in FCW began he worked like a highlight reel using just idly drifting between his dad's spots. Now at least he has a different style to his Dad. He's just got to work on making himself stand out.
