Re: Updates on Cody Hall & David Benoit

Benoit should go to Japan. He could probably find work there, WWE won't pick him up, they don't want anything to do with the Benoit name anymore.

Re: Updates on Cody Hall & David Benoit

Most guys use early gimmicks they move on from and its very rare for anyone to keep that gimmick when they hit the WWE (last one was what, Sheamus? And that was watered down alot).

Going by Cody Hall and using the gimmick probably means he'll get far better bookings than he would otherwise and bigger crowds = more relevant experience.

He's a young guy with plenty of room to grow.


Only issue, size and athleticism are hereditary. Charisma is not and im not sure yet that he has any.

Just like Ted DiBiase, DH Smith, David Flair, Curtis Axel etc.

Also I know he's big, but if I was WWE i'd look at brining the Von Erich's back into the fold, I think marshall could have something.

Re: Updates on Cody Hall & David Benoit

Well whatever happens it'll be difficult for him to make it big. The whole Benoit name and history is enough to haul his goals for big time wrestling, but he's not exactly a 'stand-out' guy in terms of appearance yet. But give him time, I'm sure he'll come into his own and do his best to have people talking more about him and not about his father.

Also I have to ask, why is this even in the NXT forum? Neither are in NXT, if anything this either belongs in General WWE or Independent news since neither are signed with WWE (whether they have WWE fathers or not).

[B]*NOT TAKING DOWN UNTIL (as of 29th August, 2014)*
[]Rob Terry breaks away from The Menagerie.
[]Ring of Honor creates an official Women of Honor Division.
[]The name 'Nixion Newell' gets more attention in the wrestling world.
[]Heidi Lovelace becomes a major title holder in a well known womens promotion.
[]More welsh wrestlers get heard of in the wrestling scene.

Re: Updates on Cody Hall & David Benoit

I think Hall will be in the WWE. He looks much better now than he did last year when he was no selling and asking what the next spot was during matches. There's still lulls in his matches but not as much as last year. He is also very agile for his size.

Marshall and Ross as a team would be a great addition to the NXT division.

I agree with a name change obviously and it would look good on the WWE as a sought redemption story for the Benoit family.

Re: Updates on Cody Hall & David Benoit

Unless new evidence comes up with his father I can't see WWE picking up David Benoit even if they change his name sad as it is
