Re: I loved Leo Kruger but Adam Rose was great tonight
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.
Thought the early part of the match was fun, with him continuously rolling away from his opponent. There was a point where things slowed down and the crowd got quiet, so I think he needs to find the right balance in the ring to keep interest. Through every gimmick he's had, that's the one thing that hurts him in that he oftentimes loses the crowd with restholds or ground-and-pound. If he can find a way to make his restholds "fun" in line with his character, he'll really have something. Liked the finish too, with the "CHOO CHOO" in the corner to set up the clothesline. It's almost there, and this is the most entertaining version we've seen of the performer, so I hope things work out for him.
