No, but I think you have one chance to make an impression on the crowd. I'm guessing there were some viewers who are going to see NXT for the first time, and in the case of Rollins for example, they got a way over the top enterance and a match that wasn't worked well. That doesn't make Rollins look too great in his debut. He didn't grab the moment at all. The crowd wasn't into it. It just fell flat.
Look at The Ascension for example. Whether you like them or not, they found a way to stand out and be memorable last week. That's what you need to do. NXT is a training ground to prove who stands out and can make the main roster, and if that's what Rollins is going to do, then he needs a lot more development. In my opinion, he's not ready. Same with Steamboat and Dallas.
