I don't mind it, and it's something for him to start with in NXT. He has the size that is intimidating, and I'm certain he will get on the main roster. I did a thread that was an idea for him once he hit the main roster. In which Big E Langston is Lil' Jimmy manifested in human form. Turns out R-Truth was not making him up. He would go by the name Big E Langston, but explain his nickname was little Jimmy because he was the scrawniest kid on the block. R-Truth stuck up for him, and finally got him a contract in the WWE. He basically says he owes his old friend.
Eventually we come to find that it was all bullshit. David Otunga ends up being behind the unexpected heel turn from Big E Langston who ends up with Otunga. Langston says that Otunga was responsible for getting him under Lauranitis as GM, and David helped him become educated as well. Of course this falls in to the character of Otunga having a Harvard Law Degree.
Big E.Langston says that there never was a little Jimmy, and he didn't know R-Truth to save his life. R-Truth in their eyes is just some dumb uneducated professional wrestler.
