Roman Reigns debut...

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...

What are others thoughts on him?

"Yet another strong episode of Lucha Underground. Where else do you get magic medallions, Skell-o-mania demons, Resurrection, teleportation, and caged monsters all in the same one hour wrestling show? Plus, the writers weave together such a good universe that all of that over the top stuff fits."

Re: Roman Reigns debut...

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.

He's pretty green still - started wrestling late because he thought he'd have a pro football career. Seems to wrestle/move at half speed to make sure he does everything properly.

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.

Good physique. Nothing more to say about him.

Re: Roman Reigns debut...

It was a terrible match imo.
I don't get why he attacked CJ's arm.

Wasn't really all that impressed but I'll let it slide as it is his debut match.

Good look and seemingly nothing else. Luckily for him, that's all you need for a big WWE push. Now, if he was a great wrestler and 3-4 inches smaller, then he'd need to be worried.

Seems to have a lot of power, his biggest strength from what I saw is that he has presence for such a nobody who is just getting started.
