Bo should go heel - either the Rock path or the Angle path. He could turn on the fans for hating him when he was trying hard to be the good guy or he could be over the top face - like Angle with his Three I's, and be oblivious to fans hating him. Or you make him delusional/self-denial face - He could think/claim they're saying Bo!oooo when they're booing. He could explain the "No More Bo!" chants as being "No, More Bo!" in that the fans want to see more of him, and he could name his finisher "You Suck" and then claim hyped fans are chanting for him to hit his finisher all the time. If there is a "You Can't wrestle" he can pump his fist in acknowledgement and believe they're saying "You CAN Wrestle!"...
This is all really spot-on. They can't expect Bo to get over with such a bland gimmick and no exciting moves. That rope running bulldog was OK, step in the right direction, but in general his offense is super boring.

I honestly felt pretty bad for him during that match...the kid clearly tries and while in general I do feel he sucks, he isn't quite as bad as everyone here seems to think. You all gotta admit his selling was great, he really made it look like Barrett killed him a couple times, and that's a valuable wrestling skill. Like he could be half of a decent tag team at some point.

But I think turning him heel could be the answer for sure. Give him a total troll type gimmick, I like the Angle path idea, many fans clearly love to hate him so encouraging that is the way to go.

Problem is the Rock always had that charisma hidden under the surface, same with Angle, as heels it came out and they flourished. I don't know that Bo has any hidden charisma. He's had a LOT of chances to show it off, and his brother was a revelation in hidden charisma after he came up with the Bray Wyatt character. But Bo? He can barely even bloody talk, never mind talk well.

Maybe that's why Dusty likes him, his incomprehensible voice reminds him of himself. Though Dusty is of course responsible for some of the best promos in wrestling history. Can't say I see that for old Bo.

I would say a small percentage are Indy fans.

Bo has no natural charisma, you can tell by his tweets and the way he conducts himself, he seems really, really unintelligent. However he does seem to be able to follow orders pretty well, so if they prepared some sort of character for him and told him exactly what to do and when to do it then he might be able to do that.

Meanwhile his brother is the complete opposite. Not only is he playing a great character really well, according to Jericho (who visited NXt and worked with Bray), Husky Harris came up with the Bray Wyatt character himself and pitched it in FCW, so it's all him. Incredible dichotomy between brothers from a wrestling family.

So after that abomination called RAW I thought I would go and watch a few episodes of NXT. Haven't watched it in a few months.

Watched PAC/Cesaro and it wiped my memory clean of RAW. What a match. Not sure why WWE would re-hire RVD when they can just call up PAC who does everything better. He is an actual high flyer, unlike Kofi who they like to call one.

Went back and watched the one previous so I could see how al the wrestlers have grown.

- Kruger still needs work but I like him, he's trying something different.

- First time i've seen Emma. She's over as hell! It's kind of strange seeing a 'diva' with crowd support, especially with the current state of the division.

- WYATT. Regal said it best during his entrance: goosebumps. The theme, the characters, the look, the presence. Everything is fantastic, call him up now.

- Graves reminds me of Punk for obvious reasons. Killer look.
