[quote=rockdig1228;31083778]I love the new gimmick and was happy to see him get a positive reaction from the crowd - speaking of, one guy tried to get a "Leo Kruger" chant going but the crowd shut him down immediately. Nice to see that the majority of the people are giving this character a chance.

I totally agree with this. I don't know if it's because the main shows have a larger 'smart mark' contingent but it's aggravating me more and more to hear their need to prove their wrestling knowledge by chanting 'Husky Harris' or the commentators names half a minute into a match. I'm not even sure if they know why they are chanting sometimes other than trying to copy the 'night after mania' crowd.
When the Rose gimmick debuted I was half expecting a huge 'Krueger' chant and was happy to hear the positive response, and also the one guy getting shut down. The NXT audience, on the whole, is pretty great. As is the show in general!

I was happy to hear this as well.

Also, I think a "Better Than Batista" chant started during one of the matches, but only made it 3 times through.

I would worry that there is no way in hell that entrance would be brought up to the main roster with Rose more than once. Vince and co are not going to bring in 30 extras in every taping to dance Adam Rose to the ring, not to mention none of those extras would be as invested and having as much fun in the spot as the fellow developmentals obviously are.

This segment/match was actually from the earlier set of tapings, with the rest of the show being from the post-ArRival set which is interesting. Rose will have another match in a couple of weeks that he did film from this last set. It will be interesting to see if he's tweaked his in-ring work to more fit the character/gimmick as he needs to work on his playfulness/unseriousness more in spots, while still ultimatel wanting to win which is a tricky balance to pull off. He also needs a much better finisher that is more showy/flashy than the high impact clothesline.

I still prefer Leo Kruger over Adam Rose.

The rockstar cocky guys gimmicks have been overused for years. Even if Rose is fun I liked best the more badass and sinister crazy hunter gimmick.

I agree.

What about this fun little move from Zayn/Cesaro? It looks flashy, and devastating all at the same time.

I really liked his debut, but then again this coming from someone who wasn't a fan of Leo Kruger. Is it me or did it look to be like he lost a substantial amount of weight?

Maybe they thought he'd get over better in a Comic gimmick. But I too thought he was great as Leo.

I don't like Russell Brand, so I really didn't like the character that much.

Apparently he pitched the idea for this character himself.
