Aiden English is not a side show
i cant believe how over he is right now lol. huge fan of this guy now. his gimmick is great, if a bit similar to sandow. singing his own entrance with the spotlight is mark worthy. his confidence on the stick is great. great look, his tights and hair really make him stand out. love the finisher even if it's simple. also love how he allowed the crowd to have an encore.

also he has a great physique /nohomo

Re: Aiden English is not a side show
The only thing I like is his finisher.

I don't like the gimmick, I don't like his look, I don't like him, but he pulls off his finisher nicely.

Re: Aiden English is not a side show
I don't particularly like the gimmick, in that I don't think it's very cool and I do think it's kind of annoying, but to me that makes him a good heel. I respect what he does and he does a good job portraying his role. In the end it's refreshing for me because I usually think the heels are cool and so I end up rooting for them unless they're fighting a face I like better, while English is a dude I would love to see get beat on by people. Unlike say a Leo Kruger (to use another NXT example), who I would token boo for at a live event because I know I'm supposed to, but really I want to see him win. But English, I can't wait for someone to come interrupt his lame song and tell him he sucks, even if its like CJ Parker or someone. So good job Aiden English.

He's actually pretty good in the ring, but the singing annoys me.

He should to a Freddie Mercury gimmick...

Re: Aiden English is not a side show
I love the gimmick. He actually has a legit background in all that. Stage acting, singing, musical theatre, etc.

Re: Aiden English is not a side show
I liked his man's man gimmick he had for a short while. It didn't last and he was a jobber but he had just a mustache, suspenders and talked like he was right out of a 30's mob. It was awesome. I've always been a fan of his and I'm glad they repackaged him. This gimmick is a lot of fun and will serve the purpose of getting a really talented worker noticed and onto the main roster. He's obviously going to have to move away from it eventually, but it's fine for now. I can name a bunch of top stars who entered with most stupid gimmick in the world (Triple H, Cena, Edge to name a few) and ended up being top talents once they got over and transitioned into a more serious role. Sometimes the horrible gimmick that stands out route is the best way to go. It's why I'm not worried about Fandango or Sandow. Both are talented and young. English is the same. This will serve as his jumping off point and he's got all the tools to be a main roster player.
