Re: I loved Leo Kruger but Adam Rose was great tonight
Having spent many, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany of my younger years in the party scene (some legal, some not so much), his entrance just had that party vibe to it. I know it sounds strange, but the way the people were acting, how they were dressed...those were the people we used to watch and see which one would turn into a bus crash first. Sure enough, they'd be back the next weekend, partying it up again. It was like a real life, weekend version of the video for Just Dance by Lady GaGa.
It certainly did well to portray the party gimmick for me.
Alright, Adam Rose. I didn't start watching NXT until after his Kruger gimmick was shelved, so seeing him come out with this gimmick for the first time was fun for me. I wasn't overly impressed with much of what I saw in the ring, except for when he was hanging through the ropes, using these silly little kicks to keep the other guy at a distance. That was brilliant to me.
It'll be interesting to see where this gimmick goes, but sadly, I don't see it pointing him towards the main roster. There's enough comedy acts (if you can call them that) there as it is.
***EDIT: Oh, and the woman who he said needed to smile? Sarah Backman - Swedish armwrestling champ. Looks like we'll see her soon.
