He looks and fights like a CM Punk/Justin Gabriel mixed wannabe. He's gimmickless and brings nothing new or unique.

He reminds me when untalented 6'8 feet tall guys debut only because their size and muscle, but changing that for being a guys from the indys who wears kickpads and uses thousands of kicks in his matches.

I don't get how Rollins could have looked "way better" considering his match was a minute and a half. Rollins CAN be involved in good matches, but it requires his opponent to have a good handle on what he's doing.

Still not a fan of Seth hardcore dancing on the stage (hardcore dancing in general is stupid) but i kinda liked the headbanging in the corner after his win... bit cheesy but i enjoyed it.

I dunno, at least I remembered which one Seth Rollins was. Stupid or not, it's something different.

Steamboat was boring as hell. Not as boring as Bo Dallas, but still pretty boring.

Ascension. These guys. They need to learn the difference between camp and cheese. Then they'll go insanely far. But that's what NXT is for.

Can someone explain Bray Wyatt to me? I didn't watch FCW, and I don't understand what the character is meant to be.

He brings a hell of a lot more than a guy like Tyson Kidd. He's charismatic in the ring and can get the people behind him. I'm no Rollins mark but I thought he was the standout guy on the show, his match was memorable even though it was a squash and his promo afterwards was ok too, in fact I don't think I've ever seen him cut a really bad promo, just no great ones either. Put it this way, he did pretty much the same thing as Bo Dallas last week and was 100x better in every aspect.

For those criticizing his entrance, watch Goldberg or Batista's entrances in a similar environment and it would probably look equally stupid if not more so. I actually really like Seth's entrance, it's much better than a generic guy in trunks walking to the ring, add some pyro and it could get over fast.

This. When you're in a tiny room with maybe 200 fans who are dead ass quiet, anything over-the-top is going to look foolish. However, in a regular WWE arena, you HAVE to be over-the-top, because everything around you is that much bigger. Willing to bet Ascension's entrance would look less cheesy in a regular arena as well.

Honestly, the deadness of the fans is killing this show for me. At this point, I'd rather have some piped in cheers and boos and whatnot than the jack crap nothing there is right now.

Seth Rollins is way better than Bo Dallas. No arguments there.
I would like to point out that Tyson Kidd gets fans behind him. His popularity is on a serious upswing.

My thoughts on this weeks show...

Seth Rollins - Looked like he was having a seizure at times. Don't like his finishing move. But seems to be a decent wrestler and has an interesting look about him.

Leo Kruger - Didn't get this guy at all. Kept comparing himself to a lion (which they were showing the vid of) then he was sitting there in a suit...that seemed a little contradictory to me. And how come he had an accent at times and sometimes he didn't? Needs a new finisher too.

Why is Jinder Mahal doing a squash match on NXT? Well anyways, he has a decent gimmick and seems like a good wrestler, but he HAS TO STOP SPEAKING INDIAN. I'm not going to watch a promo where I can't understand what he's saying 2/3 of the time. He speaks perfect english, so let him speak english.

Richie Steamboat - Easily the best performer of the show, seems a little too much like daddy still, but I'm confident he will gain his own identity.

Ok, now why is Cesaro doing a squash match on NXT? He seems OK to me. Nothing special. Aksana is hot.

Ascension - Love their gimmick and entrance. Seem like OK wrestlers. Need to see a little more from them on that front to make a judgement.

Johnny Curtis - Seems like a decent wrestler. Again need to see more. But don't we have enough overconfident pretty-boy type guys in wrestling?

Bateman - Seems awfully generic to me. Does he have a gimmick? Or is he just...himself? Seems like a decent wrestler though.

I disagree. The Ascension is also over-the-top with their vampire gimmick, yet it comes off good in the small NXT arena (imo). The whole moshing was just looking really stupid and like he was a having a seizure. When he first started moshing I had no idea what he was doing and thought something was wrong with him until it hit me what he was doing. Idk, maybe he needs to change his entrance music to better fit what he does on the stage, but as of now I still think it looks ridiculous.

Yeah. Kinda like when Jack Swagger starts screaming and stomping around for no reason. Just looks stupid.
