Or they could nickname him 'The Nightcrawler' and give him a gimmick similar to Seven in WCW, but without the mask.

That's a pretty hilarious and yet good idea actually. Having a heel who's completely oblivious to being one would be something different after quite a few years of stale midcard acts.

Watched this week's Nxt

* Cesaro/Neville was really good overall, nice story told from both men. The strength of Cesaro/speed and quickness of Neville merged really well together here. Some sicks spots in this one. Love both of them so I'm not surprised this was as good as it was.

* AJ/Kaitlyn was a good match albeit a little sloppy at times. Really smart working from AJ going after the shoulder and arm, good submission work and a sick armbar take down. Her working and selling throughout the match was good. She really gets it which makes it sadder that she never gets a chance to showcase that on the main shows. Absolutely fantastic character work into this match as well, the way she moves, her facial expressions etc. Not many people have a defined character worked into their matches like AJ does. Kaitlyn was solid but I'm still unconvinced by her as champion. Both these girls definitely have good chemistry with each other.

* Maddox's ring attire . Absolutely hilarious. His introduction of himself was great too, really liked it. This was a nothing match with Big E squashing Maddox. The 5 count gimmick I think is so goofy. Just his expressions and mannerisms make me . So bad. For some reason though, its really over.

* Bo Dallas...UGGGGGGGGGH. His interview was AWFUL and not just because of his lack of delivery or content but because it felt like he wasn't trying...like at all. Such a lazy interview.

* Match between Bo and Barrett was pretty good. Barrett carried him pretty well I thought and Dallas's selling wasn't bad. The crowd was shitting on Bo so much . Really surprised how the crowd mirrored how everyone here feels about Dallas. Loved Barret's strikes and him destroying Bo with the kicks and body shots. Not bad overall.

Overall good show, highlights for me were definitely the opening match and the divas match. From there, things slowly drifted downhill.

I also watched Emma's segment from last week because I was curious at the praise she was getting. And I seriously don't get it. To me her dancing gimmick is still really goofy and looks really awkward. Especially during the match when she's worn out. I will say she does show signs of being good in the ring. The Tarantula and the Indian Deathlock were both really nicely executed. But I don't see what the fuss is about, I really don't like her character at all.

Emma's gimmick is goofy? Awkward? You don't say. That's the entire point of it.

It might be the point of it, but it doesn't excuse it being garbage to me.

Regarding the crowd mirroring WF's views, how much of NXT's crowd is actually Indy fans, anyway? I get a feeling that NXT can be like a glorified Indy promotion, at times, noting their talent drawing power.

Who cares. So far it's getting over and getting over pretty fast. You just got to roll with those things if you are WWE.

I think it does act as one in a way. Because there is no US television clearance, only hardcore fans can watch it do so via the internet. And if you're on the internet to watch it, odds are high you are also a dirtsheet reader smark type. Also because there is no television clearance, the fans live at the arena must go every show to follow along, or again follow on the internet. There just isn't many casuals attending live events, or many casual US fans.

This is huge for talents in that if they get over in NXT, it's like getting over in the indies - which I believe is pretty big for debuting new talent. Guys like Punk and Bryan got over in very large part because of their indie following, and it could be argued these indie fans saved their jobs early even when both had rocky starts and not many fans in the office.
