I've never seen a pro-snooker player dress like Ohno.

Zayn dressed more like formal Sheamus to me than a golfer.

Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

Right, he definitely has a gimmick, for the life of me though I can't figure it out though. I'm intrigued and I'll probably start watching NXT again (was always good, just never had time) to see how this unfolds.

As for the high spots, they said to lower the number of them not take them out and I see the logic of that. You diminish the impact of the moves if you use them too many times and there is the stereotype that Indy high flyers will abandon all psychology and story telling if it means they get to go a corkscrew dragonrana moonsault to the outside off a ladder through a flaming glass table. Also he's technically a rookie so they might want to book him as such. It just means when he does them at big PPV's they'll be more special.

Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

Zayn's promo reminded me of a Christian's promo style.

Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

Well, next week Sammy should be on NXT wrestling (I think in 2 matches even), so hopefully the gimmick makes more sense them.

I was kind of thinking it reminded me of a guy you'd see in a "traditional ale" type of commercial or something. Wearing plaid shorts and socks that are pulled up way too high.

Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

They don't want him to stop his high spots, that was emphasized in the Observer, all they want him to do is do fewer of them, because they will cut his career short and they want longevity in their performers.
