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.
Ohno certainly doesn't have it, and he doesn't really have decent mic work. He's probably a better worker than he's shown, though.

Just finished watching this week's show and while the other events were a bit meh, the main event made the NXT Championship the most prestigious title in the WWE right now, the build-up to it, the hype it had, having the locker room out there to watch the match, having The Fink to announce it, getting Dusty go out there to present the title, Jim Ross doing the PBP, everything that was done in that match made that title the most important in WWE. No other title had the kind of push it got like it tonight, sure it was to crown the first champion but in the magnitude and the pageantry it received was phenomenal for the developmental brand. It's almost reminiscent to Japanese Wrestling in how the build-up and the culmination of it all felt like. WWE did a tremendous job at making that title mean something, and to have someone like Seth Rollins be the first champion was only fitting. Being that he was ROH Champ at one point only helped him to be the first NXT Champion, it meant that the promoters and the bookers trusted him to carry the brand and the company on your back. Rollins is fully capable of doing just that. It's only a matter of time before he becomes a World Champ on the main roster. And THAT is how you do a title match.

As far as Jinder Mahal goes, he'll definitely be a big time heel in the company, although I'd rather have Muhammed Hassan be that top Indian heel, Mahal does a great job as a heel. There's no question that even though he lost the match he still gained a ton of points in creative's eyes in what was a pretty damn good match in his first meaningful bout since he's been in the company.

Really enjoyed the main event, easily my favourite match on the new NXT since it started.

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.

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.
I really don't see how Mahal is superior at "connecting with the crowd". That's not exactly what Drew is famous for (I still say that it's decent), but Mahal doesn't really do much... He just speaks Indian, makes mean faces and attacks faces... Occasionally.

So I agree with Supreme, only reason Mahal was the better person for the job is because of the minimal, guaranteed foreign heel boos he is gonna get... That, and well, Drew was jobbed out like crazy. Mahal at least had that mini-feud with Sheamus and Khali, now with Ryback...

Anyways, McGillicuty could be a good choice. I'm guessing that we will see all 3 having matches with Rollins, at least in short programs.

Good match with a few nice spots, amazing build up which really made for a prestigious win, though I'm still wondering they changed his finisher when he got to NXT, the Superkick was fine and would have made for a much better finish.

As for Rollins, I see him going far. WWE are high on his high flying skills and general feel, a very safe indy vibe that'll appeal but wont be particularly challenging. My prediction is that he'll show up on the main roster post WM29 and have one of the secondary belts by Summerslam.

They changed his finisher before NXT. He used his terrible new one in his last several FCW matches.

O.K, still wish he'd change back. The stomp is almost reminiscent of the 619 since it almost always requires an opponent to leave themselves in a stupidly obvious position.

I agree. It also looks awful pretty much every time. "Hey, I'm going to half-jump and lightly step on you. You fall."
