Honestly, the deadness of the fans is killing this show for me. At this point, I'd rather have some piped in cheers and boos and whatnot than the jack crap nothing there is right now.
I disagree. The Ascension is also over-the-top with their vampire gimmick, yet it comes off good in the small NXT arena (imo). The whole moshing was just looking really stupid and like he was a having a seizure. When he first started moshing I had no idea what he was doing and thought something was wrong with him until it hit me what he was doing. Idk, maybe he needs to change his entrance music to better fit what he does on the stage, but as of now I still think it looks ridiculous.
