Fans love the impossibly muscled dude who comes out of nowhere and totally destroys everyone he faces. It's about as guaranteed a way to get over as there is.
But that doesn't last very long. It's a great way to rocket a new guy to the top. But the "destroys everyone he faces" gimmick falls apart once he has to wrestle other top guys. Hard to be the unstoppable freak of nature when you are losing, or even winning closely fought matches.
I think Langston shows promise, but hard to read too much into this. He's the first unstoppable freak of nature they've had at the new NXT tapings at Full Sail. So not a surprise the crowd there likes him.
He's got some explosive quickness to his moves that makes his bulk even more impressive. And he seems to have some personality. One downside, I think he's kinda short.
