Kassius Ohno - Can He Make It?

This isn't a hate thread.. I like the guy, he entertains me. But I can't help but see the love the IWC feel for him and how he'll be awesome on the Main Roster. But as much as I like his, I just don't see it. Wrestling ability, check. Mic skills, check. Charisma, check. Look, whoops.. He has a terrible look, and usually I'm not too bothered about the "look", love CM Punk skinny fat ass. But Ohno, he's too lanky and too flabby. He simply walks and his gut jiggles like no ones business. I can see him making it to the Main Roster, I just can't see him getting past the US Title division. I feel like anyone that isn't aware of his history on the indies, will not react. He'll have a hard time getting over, he'll have a hard time finding a gimmick.. Cause that Knockout shit just won't cut it in the Main Roster.

Hate to say it, but I think his best bet is as a member of the Wyatt family, and that's if they get called up as a stable.

As I said, I'm not hating on him. I'm just under the impression that his look will kill any chance he has of getting over on the Main Roster.

Does anyone else feel this way?

If he really has charisma and mic skills like you said he will make it to the top, The Miz made it. Don't get me wrong Miz is not a bad looking guy but he does not look like a wrestler, KO while flabby and all kinda does.

Re: Kassius Ohno - Can He Make It?

He's in pretty bad shape which could be a huge downfall of his due to Vince liking muscular men. I personally don't have a problem with his look seeing as the ability to entertain and wrestle doesn't equal muscle mass but you know what Vince is like. With that being said he definitely shouldn't just become one of the Wyatt family, the Wyatt Family should, and will, be focused around Bray Wyatt (and rightly so). Ohno has too much individuality and legacy to fade into the background like the generic Wyatt Family members should do.

Re: Kassius Ohno - Can He Make It?

The only thing I feel that could hold Kassius back is his age. The WWE will be hesitant to go all the way with him. Mid-30s is pushing it and he's not even on the main roster yet. I can see the WWE thinking the younger blood like Neville, Graves, Generico etc would be more worthy investments because they still have a lot of mileage left.

Don't confuse him not being ripped with him not being in shape.

Of course he can. He's big, handsome, can cut promos and wrestle. All it takes is an interesting character.

Sure he can. If WWE don't fuck up with him and let him be who he is. The BADASS.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

The guy is more than talented enough to make it to the top, he has a good look, is excellent in the ring and can cut a great promo, there is no reason for him not making except creative messing up.

JBL was always "flabby" by WWE standards, too.
