Ohno is working with lesser talent in terms of experience with wrestling in general. Many of you seem to forget that fact. Those who work well in NXT, or FCW do so only because they have been in those developmental programs their whole WWE careers. Guys like Richie, Bo, and Leo Kruger have never made the main rosters.

Ohno has to lower his "standards" for work rate in NXT, and for those who think otherwise that's fine, but please provide an explanation to that point. His most recent match went over very well with a very green Jake Carter. Kassius' finisher went over well in this most recent match, and my hat is off to Carter who solid it so perfectly. The hard elbow knockout is exactly what he talks about in his promos, so I think he is connecting well within that creative aspect. His biggest problem right now is keeping a sound rhythm to his promos. There at times seem to be awkward pauses in his work on the mic.
Couldn't agree more man. Great post!

I think he needs to cut his promos the way he was in ROH on HDNET. "Rhythm" is a good word, because that's exactly what he had in those, and once he gets back to that "Muhammad Ali" type catchphrase packed promos he'll do just great!

comparing him to the whole roster rather than his peers is basically pointless. The way I see it, based on what we've seen of hero in fcw/nxt he is the bottom of the top 5 in developmental.

Ambrose and cesaro have both been far better all round. Kruger is swiftly evolving into a ring general & would also get the nod. Huskys ring work is interesting & he has a great gimmick.

Hero may be the 5th guy but cases could he made for others as hes yet to have any great matches or promos.

Citing his work elsewhere is pointless, if he can't work the way WWE want they'll never do anything with him so he has 2 options, adapt or move on.

This week's main event is definitely must see, but the rest was so-so. Full report with pics and quotes here:

The main event was decent (better than I expected), but the ending sequence was terrible. It doesn't help that Rollins has an awful finisher, but the setup was borderline stupid. The match was definitely better than either of the matches in the previous round of the tournament, but not as good as a couple of the matches from the first round. Nor was it Kidd/McGillicutty. May have cracked the new NXT Top 5 for matches so far (maybe).

Hunico/Camacho vs Jordan/Dalton II was pretty good.
The Ascension/Usos feud is interesting enough, and at least the Ascension is doing something.

I still don't understand why WWE is so interested in Big E. Langston. He's completely boring in the ring and lacks the presence to pull of the character that they want from him. There are much better wrestlers in NXT right now that WWE should be focusing on.

I don't see how anyone can talk bad about Mahal after that main event. He played the heel role perfectly and got the crowd right behind Rollins. Hopefully he now gets a strong push on one of the main shows.

Watching the match now.

God-dammit, Dusty, JR, Regal, Finkel... This show should be fucking fantastic in theory.

Anyways, can someone remind me of how the whole tournament went so far? The brackets, I mean?

=====
Watched the match.
Decent stuff, somewhat average if you ask me.
I dislike Rollins' finisher, it just... No. Besides that, he seems like a pretty... "Cool" performer overall, I like him so far. As for actual "skillz" and "value", I can't really give a good description yet.

Mahal... With my constant efforts to be fair and objective, I'll just say that he is so... "Meh". I've always been positive about him, but the more I look at him, the more I say "No... For now."
His signature/finishers - Full Nelson Slam and Camel Clutch. FNS is cool, but the Camel Clutch is so stereotypical - but O.K., I guess.
I dislike his facial expressions and his VEINS, eh.
As for his wrestling, dunno. His knees, which are supposed to be a big part of his arsenal - they are bad-ish. I feel little impact from them, they just don't look as cool as they should be. He still seems somewhat awkward in the ring for some reason... The way he dropped from the apron and took that crossbody is testament of that.

So, I'll say that it is NOT just my personal preference when I say that Drew is so much superior.

McIntyre couldn't have put Rollins over in the way Mahal did. He may have been able to put on a better technical match in theory, but the crowd wouldn't have been anywhere near as into it and so it wouldn't have been as entertaining. Whether or not you like or dislike individual aspects about Mahal, he connects with the audience and is fantastic at putting over faces, which is something I don't feel Drew will ever be able to do. Mahal is also younger and less experienced than McIntyre and is already a long way above him in the important areas IMO.

I'm not sure that Jinder "connects with the audience" so much as people boo him because he's an "evil foreigner." It's more a misguidedly racist response than anything proper.

Drew's matches against Rollins were both better than the Mahal/Rollins match. I actually like Mahal, but every McIntyre match is better than every Jinder match. They face mostly the same opponents, as well. Drew's problem is that he's been booked so weakly that crowds assume he's going to lose. Jinder's been booked (slightly) better than that lately, AND he lets crowds pretend to be patriotic much more easily.

I do agree that for this particular match, Jinder was the correct opponent. Maybe Drew will get a title match down the line, since he already defeated Rollins once (assuming they choose to go in that direction).

As you said, Drew's been doing this a lot longer than Mahal, so it's not like Jinder doesn't have plenty of time and opportunity to reach the same levels in the ring.
