Wathced the latest episode of NXT last night with the (appartenly) much hyped debut of Roman Reigns. There was alot of talk on commentary from Regal and Saxon about him having the It factor and so on and so forth. He is billed at 6'3 but does look much bigger.
He is an impressive looking dude and did have a bit of an aura about him. He didn't squash his opponent which was a change for NXT's debuting guys, but the match itself was quite clunky though. His finisher is pretty cool (a belly to back into a rockbottom sort of move).
For those who have seen his debut or him, what are your thoughts? He was a bit generic, nothing like the awesomeness of a Bray Wyatt character but if he can work on his mic skills he could be moulded into a top tier wrestler in the years to come...
He definitely has the look that Vince would love (combination of athletic, larger-than-average size, good looks and toned muscular body), it's hard to grasp much from his first match. Looked a tad lacklustre but I guess we'll see more in the next couple of months.
Roman Reigns, AKA Leakee when he was down in FCW IMO isnt all that special...Great look and has the samoan family heritage but i dont get anything else from him. Just another generic guy that will most likely have trouble getting the crowd to invest in him.
