Default Zema Ion: Opinions?

I've been watching his his matches closely for a while now, and I can't help thinking that all his talent and athletic ability is spoiled by his stupid gimmick that makes no sense whatsoever, but I don't know whether it's just me or if it's a popular opinion. Thoughts?

Lot of potential. Pretty good in-ring and good at giving slimy heel interviews on the likes of TNA today. He also comes out with some pretty sweet one-liners here and there (but they often get missed as they are during matches). Not sure how great he is at in-ring promos.

But I agree - I don't like his ring gear and his gimmick needs a bit of tweaking. Maybe also a bit young (or young-looking) to be considered a genuine threat, but he was definitely a decent signing and could go far.

Im a huge fan of this guy, he plays the heel well and would be a bigger star by now if the X Division was utilized more and he more people to go up against. The only real faces he can feud with are the likes of RVD who will never put him over. Gimmick is a bit random and could do with minor adjustments id say but i see a bright future for him.

I don't think anybody has ever questioned Zema's in-ring ability. He's a very good worker who's only getting better and is a refreshing change from the spot monkey type guys from the X Division in the past. Zema can wrestle.

His gimmick is really stupid, but it gets him heat. He is one of the only heels in TNA who legitimately gets booed by crowds, that has to count for something.

I like him. Lots of potential.

He's cute, but his in-ring work needs sharpening and his promos are kinda iffy. He has potential, but I don't think he'll shine anytime soon.

There have been times where he comes out to no heat, surely you haven't noticed this before? The only time I recall him getting a substantial amount of heat was coming out at Bound For Glory.

I actually don't mind his gimmick. It's effective and draws good heat.

I see him as a future Top Talent who has the ability to main-event. For someone so young he possesses great in-ring skills. He's not your typical X-Division wrestler who just moves from dangerous spot to dangerous spot. Ion actually puts a lot of thought into each move.

He's also loaded with charisma. While his mic-skills are his weak-point, all he needs is time for that to improve.

I conceded to take this fight at 162 pounds because fatty couldn't lose any more weight. I will do Vargas a favor by retiring him in this fight so his family doesn't have to suffer every time he steps in the ring. I'm going to do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore.

I absolutely adore Zema Ion, I think hes very charismatic and a natural heel, I was very disappointed they ended his wonderful X Division title reign for BoreVD.

and the Hairspray? I guess his gimmick is hes vain/self centred, He cares about his appearance as much as the average woman does..
