I reviewed this week's show in my blog in my signature below with pics/gifs/quotes. I wasn't a fan of this. The Barreta match was the only decent match I thought. There seemed to be no build to really anything here and it felt like a house show. I found it to be a waste of one hour and maybe my least favorite NXT yet.
This list doesn't even make sense. Rollins, the Usos and Ohno have "good gimmicks" on what level? They fall into the same category as Steamboat, Dallas, and Carter (not that Carter's had a chance to do/show anything on NXT). I'm not even trying to insult them, but it seems like you like the guys in the last group, so you upped them a level.
I admit that "good gimmicks" was a poor choice of words. I wanted to say that in my opinion, their gimmicks work here and would work on wwe main roster. Even if Rollins and Ohno gimmicks have nothing special( a mean guy who wants to ko people and an overexcited champion) i feel there is a huge gap between them and Steamboat and dallas who don't have any gimmick (oh yes son of wwe legend...)
I don't especially like the guys i mentioned (Rollins is pretty bland on interview, ohno has not the shape of a wwe wrestler and Langston hasn't shown me anything in wrestling terms) but i think their gimmick are good for rookies in a rookie show: not too bland and not too crazy.
The NXT crowd has slowly been catching on to Kassius Ohno. He was able to get a solid reaction from the crowd on multiple occasions. Awkward 6-man tag, but it still kept the Steamboat/Ohno feud relevant. I can't really dig The Usos just yet.
