It's still a positive when you can get the NXT crowd going. If he bombed there then it's 100% certain that he would bomb in front of a regular WWE audience.

I could see this having similar appeal as The Godfather's initial run but Adam Rose/Leo Kruger is better in the ring.

The more I think about it, I think this gimmick has a lot more potential than just for the man playing Adam Rose.

It would actually be a neat way to debut a bunch of guys all at once but with Rose as the focal point - making them a stable and allowing them to rotate in who tags with Adam Rose. Almost like how Special K was handled in the earlier days of ROH, but as more of a fun-loving group rather than a bunch of rich-kid ravers like Special K.

Yeah, reminds me a lot of the Godfather gimmick, which I loved as a kid.

The guy has been in developmental for years and was going nowhere as Kruger, he was constantly being overtaken by younger guys who had debuted way after him. Fuck, Kruger was FCW Champion back when Wyatt was still teaming with his brother as Husky Harris, Reigns was Leakee, Sandow was in developmental with a military gimmick and the likes of Cesaro, Harper and Corey Graves hadn't even been signed and were still on the indies. I liked the idea of Leo Kruger but the character just didn't work all that well and wasn't getting him any closer to the main roster, he desperately needed a change.

BEST ENTRANCE OF ALL TIME!

I can't stop laughing..
I hope that the character will work and we will see him soon at the main roster.

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.

Messy.

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.

He plays the character extremely well but let's face it, this is the type of gimmick that gets over with smarks watching NXT and bombs with the main WWE audience. *ahem* Emma *cough*

No. I will not, I can not and I refused.

He's actually using Aldous Snow as his basis not Russell Brand, though Brand played Snow in both movies of course. Also Rose needs to watch his accent portrayal doesn't stray into Austin Powers territory, as I feel it did in parts of his couch interview bit.

It's totally different to Emma. Rose is an outrageous, entertaining character that was executed well, Emma was pretty much just an in-joke amongst NXT fans similar to Ascension's 'yah' or whatever. They also introduced Emma to the main roster in a horrible way, I still think she'll be pretty popular in time as long as they focus more on her character and not just trying to force people in the crowd to dance.
