Re: I loved Leo Kruger but Adam Rose was great tonight

Its a fun gimmick but comedy stuff only gets you so far unfortunately. There's definitely a niche and you can make a good living as a santino or fandango, but your never going to be taken seriously or main event.

Paul Burchill was crazy over as a pirate once upon a time, it doesn't mean much sadly.

Not everyone has to be a main eventer straight away, characters can get tweaked all the time. An memorable entertaining gimmick can often be a good foot in the door

Adam Rose is 35yo, he probably would be happy just getting a comedy run on the main roster. Obviously the Leo Kruger character was seen as a dead end for him - I blame the booking but fans never really latched on to it.

Re: I loved Leo Kruger but Adam Rose was great tonight

I think this gimmick is his best shot of making it on the main roster. The fans were certainly into it, he just needs a little time to adjust his ring style into the gimmick and I can see him having a decent run in WWE. He's not a young prospect, more so a wrestler that sadly caught WWE's eye a little too late for him to make a major impact unless he is brought in with some kind of a gimmick.

Then again the same could've been said about DDP.

Charisma personified

Comedy gimmicks are not a bad thing - look at Emma, look at Breeze, look at (arguably) Bryan
He was over though? Also the gimmick starts him back from square one he has to squash random guys now where in the Kruger gimmick he was previously in the title picture and constantly in top level matches

The crowd are into it but lets be honest here the nxt crowd is into most things. They aren't a standard audience by any means, maybe this gimmick will catch on but if he's lucky he'll be a brodus clay or fandango. Which isn't bad necessarily
