I think I've seen that guy with the comb-over interviewing other wrestlers. I dunno though.

That guy clearly has a 'Red Baron' gimmick.

This guy clearly doesn't.

Ok, there are some people called Baron (although I don't think NBA players are the best example since the most well known have names like Kobe and LeBron), that doesn't stop it from being a shitty name. Bray Wyatt may be made up but it sounds like a hillbilly name and fits his gimmick, AFAIK Corbin doesn't even have a gimmick yet (apart from being someone who wants to have brain cancer on those leaked promos), so unless he's going to become a European Baron or something then the name really doesn't make a lot of sense. It's like if Jason Jordan or Mike Dalton was called 'Lord Overland' with no explanation, except even that name is better than Baron Corbin because at least it flows off the tongue.

Dolph Ziggler got over. Anything is possible.

Besides, WWE picks dumb names all the time for their wrestlers. This is a drop in the bucket. Only funnier b/c it's a parody on Indie wrestler Darrin Corbin. Why or how they stumbled upon that correlation is a mystery to me and everyone else, nonetheless, it's funny due to the awful nature.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Dolph Ziggler is like Kassius Ohno. It's garish and ridiculous, but also kind of works in a strange way. Baron Corbin is just, WTF is that. It's a Brutus Beefcake level of stupidity, nobody is going to take it seriously.

A stupid name is a stupid name. Small potatoes and nobody will give a damn at the end of the day if the guy rocking it has the tools.

Simple stuff. Making too much of something that might not even go anywhere considering the guy in question is currently a new jobber.

He should go the Skip Sheffield route with the change to Ryback. I'd like to see more ring names like that again.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

...maybe he called himself baron Corbin because Darin Corbin was already taken?

Great NXT this week. I really liked Wyatt's promo and actually making a story out of the mask-him checking his nose after the match was kinda cool. E/Sandow was good too, Sandow for the most part though.

ZAYN NEXT WEEK BITCHES.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Dug the show this week as well. Good matches, great character development.

Best segment of the show for me was the Graves interview/confrontation with Wyatt.

Nattie vs Summer was a solid match, Nattie should stay down here full time (as ridiculous as that sounds), as she was given time and opportunity to actually wrestle. Ending was a bit clunky as Paige decided to finally get around to interfere when Nattie was looking for the sharpshooter - which didn't make a lick of sense. Hopefully Nattie is in the Womens Title tournament and maybe gets her win back against Summer there. I'd LOVE to see Nattie vs Paige down the line as well.

Don't know what they're going for with the Sami Zayn character yet - but I have a huge schoolboy crush on Renee Young.

Bray Wyatt has his character completely figured out - it's really fun to watch. Where can I order my "Eater of Worlds" t-shirt? I didn't dig the mask, but understand it's not permanent but rather protecting a broken nose from a house show match. He tied it into his promo really well though - a real pro.

Match was standard fare from Wyatt, I liked the him headbutting the punch spot though. Burch is a lot smaller than I figured he was though and will need to come up with a gimmick quickly. I think a London street punk/hooligan could work for him.

Bo seems to be going to an "over the top face" heel character (that does actually make sense), which could work, at least I'll give it an honest chance. If he starts claiming the Booing is Bo-ing (taking a page out of Mr. Burns/Smithers they're saying Boo-urns) he might even win me over.

Conor O'Brian squash is what it is. I'm glad they're putting him back in a tag team and Rick Victor was the right choice. Victor is very solid in the ring, so he can do most of the in ring work like Cameron did, allowing Conor to be the powerhouse.

Sandow carried Langston to possibly his best match I've seen. I understand Langston going over, but I didn't like the extra big ending and five count ending. In the very least I think Sandow should have kicked out of the five count - because it would just be something he'd do.

If they want to take the title off of Langston while protecting him at the same time, have a heel talk him into needing a five count to win. Actually it would be a good spot for Babyface Bo, make it sound all innocent and how Big E is so dominant and likes the five count why not sign the contract for the match where to beat Bo he needs to be pinned for five seconds (with Bo only needing three to pin Big E of course). This would allow Big E to have numerous four counts during the match (ie he would have won a regular match) and then when Bo finally gets the 1-2-3 on him he could celebrate his big win but fans would reject it as cheap.
