Steamboat's actually developing into something interesting. I mean he was basically a fetus, but now he's showing some personality and working well with Ohno. The developmental kids are really benefiting from working with the long-term indie guys, too.
Agreed here. Steamboat has been getting better, and I would say that it's Bo Dallas who has looked, and sounded awful. Nonetheless these developmental stars are benefiting greatly from the old pros from the indies. Granted they have added some more talent, but nothing like Prince Devitt, Davey Richards, El Generico, or a Eddie Edwards type of a talent. They still need to make some more moves in terms of signing more talent for these other stars to learn from.
Like I have said in the past, Ohno is the best choice for NXT Champion, and I think he should go long term with it as well. They could really build a show off of a heel like Kassius Ohno. His mic work has gotten much better, and you can tell he has his character. Obviously to many, the only thing left for him to do is cut a few pounds off his waist...lmao. In any case, I think Ohno should win the NXT title, and prove why he is main roster worthy.
Keep him down there in NXT with his title, and if they are smart he hold it for nearly a year. Let him debut at the Royal Rumble, and have announcers talk about the belt he wore out to the ring, and what it means. Give him a long go in the Royal Rumble, and push who he is, and what he has done. Make him seem legit, and allow him to eliminate the second most amount of stars of all time behind Kane. Give him the "most eliminations" rub, where he is knocking his opponents out over the top rope, or in the ring, and then throwing them out over the top rope.
