Ascension's gimmick is too much for the small arena too, IMO. It will be awesome in a real arena, so don't think I'm knocking them for it... but yeah, maybe it's just a matter of what seems natural or makes sense in your experience. Actually, the crazy moshing around thing kind of reminds me of my husband, which might be why it doesn't seem unnatural to me. Personal experience, I guess. Would it work better for you if he came out to some crazy ass old skool Metallica riff?

The moshing reminds me of my brother he does it nearly daily and I think it's stupid when he does it too lol.

And no I don't like Metallica so I wouldn't like it if he started using that. I suppose some rock music would hit him, I don't listen to much rock music but I'm sure there's something that'd fit him better than what he has now..

Oh, I think it's pretty stupid when my husband does it too, I'm just saying it makes more sense to me.

Anyways, this is his suggestion for a better entrance theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1G0TJ_89ao

Moshing =/= hardcore dancing.

Ideally if me was going to use his love of metal music as part of his gimmick i'd have him just headbanging on the stage (like he did after his win) and a few slaps to the face after to show he was psyching himself up. Also i would prefer if he used his War of Ages theme again or 2nd Sucks which he wanted to change to, both would fit better and work with the basic and simple headbanging entrance (it worked for Hardy who did a simular thing really)

Also his curbstomp needs a better name, until his NXT debut it was just called the curbstomp then they called it (so iv'e heard) the name of one of his ROH finishers, The Blackout.

Not terribly impressed this week. Bunch of squash matches. Man, the Usos have very low value for someone on the main roster. Jobbing to Ascension in front of a couple of hundred people on NXT? Ouch.

Yeah, I've been wondering for awhile what exactly they did wrong because they've been a tag team for ages and ages yet they have jobbed to everyone and their mother and been passed over for tag team titles in favor of the likes of Otunga and various jobber smashes.

Ascension looked good as well...the usos jobbing again.
Steamboat looked very ordinary
Cesaro looked very impressive

Nothing wrong with the latest episode, i throughly enjoyed it.
These squash matches are just to establish the talent to the audience, give it 2/3 months and i'm 99% sure we will have feuds with proper matches.

What are the matches happening this week, since someone posted a card that turned out to be diff since WWE edits together matches from diff shows into their 1 main show.
