Re: Who has the best gimmick in NXT right now?

Bray Wyatt easily. The rest of the gimmicks do nothing for me. The Ascension gimmick is cool and all, but like I've said before, the guys just aren't doing it for me. They look like they're going for the vampires in Blade type vibe but I don't buy it on them. Maybe if I watched NXT more and got used to them, it would work better on me. Call them up anyway, the tag division needs something different.

What I've seen of Kruger has been downright embarassing.

I'm not sure who else really has one. Kassius Ohno, really? I like to hurt people is not a gimmick.

Episode 90 - New Spider-man, Terminator & Arkham Knight

What a week for all the things we talk about! A new Spider-man, news on a solo Batman film, Suicide Squad and Star Trek (Track). Plus we get into Batman: Arkham Knight and what we sort of remember from all the Terminator movies. Thanks for listening!

Bray Wyatt. Very unique and very enjoyable. He has come a long way from being Husky Harris on RAW.



Thanks Punk

Bray Wyatt is an obvious one, so I'll go with Kassius Ohno's KO gimmick, or James Bronson's Hugo Strange gimmick if they use that one in NXT.

Bray Wyatt, it's not even a debate. Doesn't matter if it's the obvious choice, because he's the only choice. He's head and shoulders above everyone else in terms of character development and presence. If handled right he's going to be a big star.

Re: Who has the best gimmick in NXT right now?

Bray Wyatt. Love love love his creepy promos. His gimmick seems so natural/ perfect for him. I'd say Ambrose falls in the same category but has he been around NXT? I am falling behind on the episodes.

BOOKING RAW
- Opening HHH promo, interrupted by the Oscar Award music when he starts saying the same crap over and over again.
- Cesaro/Kidd vs Hollywood Bleach-Blondes: Ziggler/Rollins for the Tag Titles
- Monsters Ball: Kane v Big Show v Rowan v Harper vs Mark Henry vs El Torito (And no one sells any of El Torito's offense)
- Lana-On-A-Pole Match: No competitors, just Lana on a pole
- Triple Threat Divas Match:
Emma v AJ vs Paige (filled with chain wrestling, stand offs, stiff strikes, apron bumps, blading, etc.)
- Promo Off/Debate:
Bray Wyatt v Dean Ambrose v Roman Reigns v Hideo Itami (Spoiler: Itami comes in 3rd)
- WWE Title:
Brock Lesnar vs Daniel Bryan!

Ambrose is the only member of the FCW roster who has not debuted on NXT or (obviously) the main roster, he's working dark matches exclusively and being kept off of any form of tv, which obviously signals the fact that WWE sees him as the crown jewel (I don't blame them, he is) and they really want to make sure that they handle him correctly and know exactly what they're doing before he shows up.

Watch the match that starts at 21:40, it's only a short squash but that's what really sold me on Ascension as a team. They looked like they were trying to kill CJ Parker.

Re: Who has the best gimmick in NXT right now?

Bray Wyatt - His promos are great and himself and Brodie Lee seem to have great chemistry. I'm looking forward to see who else will be in the Wyatt Family.

The Ascension - The whole look is cool as shit. The tag team division needs something like this. I want to see Raquel Diaz with them and if they ever take Ricardo Rodriguez away from Del Rio, put him back with them.

Leo Kruger - Liked him in his first gimmick and like him in his second gimmick. The guy has the look, the ring skills and seems to be able to play any role convincingly. I can't wait till he debuts on TV.

Big E Langston - The 5 count is a nice touch. I like the chalk and the whole Powerlifting thing he has going on. He could be a big star but I don't feel there is a place for him on any show besides NXT with Ryback there.

I'm a big fan of Ohno aswell. He doesn't have much of a gimmick but he doesn't neccessarily need one. It would be cool if he went back to his indy look to set himself apart, but I don't see it. If he's going to reform the KOW with Cesaro, he will need to have matching attire.

Off topic, but at 27:50 or so. Must be going mad or does Johnny Curtis quite blatantly say 'fuckin'?
