Oliver Grey, is there potential?
 
After watching several of his matches, and listening to him talk I can't help, but ask this question. Does this man have potential? I'm not bothered by his accent, and I can clearly understand everything he says. What impresses me most is his ring work. He has a very smooth style, and it's almost like a form of chain wrestling. I like how he moves in the ring, and was actually shocked to see such crisp work on his part. His squash match vs Ohno many months ago is best left int he past. Grey wasn't there to showcase himself, but he did sell Ohno's moves very well.

I thought his pairing with Adrian Neville was simple. He isn't the tallest guy, but he isn't scrawny either. I would bet he could add more bulk with a frame like is. His mic work isn't bad either, and seems natural in front of a camera. If you notice his NXT promo for the entrant in the Royal Rumble tournament for NXT, he doesn't come off as nervous at all. Would like to see more of this man on NXT, and I think the WWE has a star here. I like the amount of non-American wrestling talent that the WWE actually has. Oliver has charisma, and that's something you can't teach. I think he will make a name for himself, and will do enough to merit a spot on the main roster.

Very smooth in the ring, has a good sense of coordination. Each move leads to the next, he's not disjointed, which you see from a lot of guys today, even ones called up with potential, like Roman Reigns and Big E Langston.

I hope this team with Neville makes it to the main roster. They can go under the name the RAF(Royal Air Force), given that both are high flyers or agile in some way.

I enjoyed his style. It a way it reminded me of Nigel with the fluidity of his arm attacks

Not sure how anyone could not understand what he's saying? PAC, fair enough, because he's from Newcastle so they barely speak English.

Was pleasantly surprised by him in the ring, though. A lot to work with.

I was quite impressed. Oliver Grey is the most generic name a pro wrestler can have, but I was impressed by him both by his in-ring smoothness and his quite nite mic skills. Pairing him with PAC was an awesome decision.

Lovely physique, very smooth transitions, technically proficient. I looked up some of his indie matches, and I was impressed.

. . .insert 50 shades of grey joke here.

Redman isn't a high flyer btw. He's really good in the ring. Very crisp and athletic for his size. Good look too. No reason why shouldn't have at least a chance of doing well if they use him.

Good look? He's a generic drone with nothing special.

You may think he's generic, but I think more would say (and WWE would too) that he's got a very marketable look... clean-cut, muscular physique, handsome guy. That kind of look can take a guy far, despite many people's claims otherwise.

I think, for the time being, pairing him with PAC is the best decision. They remind me a lot of Ascention, in terms of the fact that they're two guys who would probably go nowhere alone, but would do good as a team. Maybe in the future he, and PAC also, can be successful singles stars, but right now I think the best thing for Grey (and PAC) is to tag. Just to get the crowd behind them and showcase their talent so they aren't just looked at as jobbers and passed by, by the fans.
