Aiden English's work as Matt Marquee in the indies is actually very good. There's some youtube stuff if you are interested in watching it. So far in FCW, he's been a face jobber without a lot of character being shown. They really need to highlight him more and give him the chance to stand out as I think he's one of the few in FCW actually able to be a face with some personality.

Kruger has the potential to be a top heel. The only problem is he could end up another foreign heel and I think he needs to do more to distinguish himself from the rest. Being from South Africa isn't enough.

The ring announcer this week is godawful. Three matches, three squashes so far. Usos/Ascension could be good.

Cesaro getting his FCW theme back is superb provided it's a permanent fixture.

Bray Wyatt's vignette was so mad!! I'm excited to see where this gimmick goes because it has plenty of potential.

A lot of people are hot on Seth Rollins but I can't take him seriously at this point when he's moshing as part of his stage entrance and wearing Asking Alexandria shit to the ring. Another enjoyable NXT.

Ohno and Paige confirmed for next week!

Kruger has potential, but he just needs something more, which I guess is why he's on NXT.

Pretty crappy show this week but Bray's promo was easily the most interesting/entertaining thing on the show this week.

It took two weeks for NXT to completely lose focus. The whole episode was full of squash matches that went nowhere and didn't allow the audience to get used to the new wrestlers. Absolutely no storyline development at all which isn't promising for their third episode. Furthermore, why pull Mahal and Cesaro off Smackdown if they are going to be in NXT matches that last less than two minutes? It's a waste as they can't work the crowd to get them over as heels.

I thought the only decent match was The Usos vs. The Ascension.

I still think Rollins, Steamboat, and Dallas (from last week's episode) are completely boring as faces. This is a problem when those are likely going to be the top three faces of NXT. They all lack something that engages the audience. And Rollins is really trying way too hard to get over. It'll happen naturally without a weird ring enterance if he's doing his job correctly.

Not gonna do a long winded reply since it pretty much comes down to this: I disagree with everything you said except for Bo is a boring face and it's only their second episode. Mahal and Cesaro need to be on NXT, Mahal especially. Wouldn't the entire point of NXT be to get them over? Do you really expect the man who just walked down the ramp for the first time to be instantly over?

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.
