That doesn't mean he isn't terrible.
His super push only really started in 2011 when he was pushed to win the title twise. And if you think he's terrible you are incredibly wrong. He's a damn good wrestler in the same way Cena is. He's an insanely good babyface given how young he is.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

In what way is he a damned good wrestler? Every offensive move he has looks like the flailing of a little girl. He bumps fairly well, which I guess is the most important thing for a face these days. He can't speak at all.

I don't even mind his androgynous look. I imagine that will do quite well with the teen girl demographic. My biggest problem with Bo is that he's painfully overhyped for where his skill level is actually at right now. I don't care how young he is. Sure, it means that he likely has a lot more upside than someone considerably older, but that doesn't make "insanely good" at anything at this point in time.

Absolutely. Does anyone know if JR is doing more commentary for the new NXT?

That guy interviewing Bo Dallas after the first match is the brother of Ziggler, they have to be twins. He looks exactly the same and even has the same voice.

I think you're seriously underestimating the importance of connecting with an audience. I don't care how long he's been there; lot's of wrestler get no reaction at all. Especially babyfaces with no character besides "good guy", like Bo.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

My excitement still hasn't died down. FCW's been my favorite wrestling product ever since I saw a pissed off Husky Harris pull up to the arena in his pickup truck and storm the arena to the sounds of a howling at the top of her lungs Maxine. This is basically that, but in a cooler looking arena and with the best video packages WWE have done in a while.

Mike Dalton seemed to get decent pops during FCW shows. I'm not saying this to demean Dalton, because I actually think he's a skilled performer, but he's clearly not in the same area of hype/push as Bo.

You're correct though. I did overstate my case against Bo initially. He totally does seem to connect with an audience, which is ultimately the "key" to getting pushed. For as overrated as I find him to be in the ring, he does have that going for him. I apologize if I came across too strongly Anti-Bo, as I do expect him to be wildly successful.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

I think even a casual fan would look at Bo's finishing spear and be unimpressed. Big Show's is better.

Judging by FCW TV broadcasts, there is little to no crowd reaction when Bo hits the spear, and there is surprise in the crowd when the unimpressive spear actually results in a 3 count. I would assume that there isn't a locker room full of wrestlers unwilling to sell the spear for him, so it's in the way he does it. He needs to do it better or he needs a new finisher.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Bo definitely needs a new finisher. It's like they hand out "out of nowhere" finishers by drawing them out of a hat. No one was using it, Bo drew it, and now he's stuck with it even though it's awful. He does need an "out of nowhere" finisher, but give him one he can actually perform.

Give him the Stunner or fire Orton and give him the Diamondcutter.
