NXT could use a star like Steen?
I am no Steen mark, nor do I really care about his success in this business. I am however a fan of NXT and enjoy what the current product has progressed into. Obvious kudos to those who write the show. However, I do feel that Kevin Steen is a talented person regardless of not being a fan of the myself. He has "it", or at least gets "it". His mic delivery is strong and the main thing he is lacking would be the "look".
Steen isn't very tall, or muscular. None of which I really to think about when I watch him in the ring, or hear him speak on the mic. Even as a non fan of his I can say that he sparks interests in me because I am a fan of professional wrestling, sports entertainment, etc. It's the same reason and many more for why I could care less about Wyatt, or Foley's physical appearance. Steen is no Foley, but he has carved a small niche of his own on the Indy Scene.
I feel like America is certainly at that point where they could accept a look like his especially for NXT. He has the mouth that the show could really gain from. His heel work is solid and the WWE main rosters are lacking a strong mid card division. There are very few affective heels on NXT and I certainly feel like he could be an instant home run for that show. Give him two years in NXT and I think Steen will gain popularity leading to a hypothetical WWE main roster call up.
