While the uppercut is beyond awesome, I'd prefer the Alpamare Waterslide (that slam move he performed on Sheamus for the 1st time in WWE last week) as his finisher. The way how Cole always says "Rko out of nowhere" is kind of annoying, so I'm not sure if I'd like to see more "out of nowhere" finishers right now. But both moves would be excellent finishers nontheless.
Great worker, big fan of his Indy work, but his character in WWE is very bland. He is basically Ludvig Borga at this point. It is just "Hey, I am foreign, so I hate you America!". There are some cool things they do with him speaking five languages, but I wish they'd do something a bit more than just evil foreigner.
Very solid all-around guy. He's got a great moveset that sets him apart from the others even if the Neutralizer is kind of dopey. Not a future world champion but should enjoy a good career pretty high on the card.
It ammuses me that so many are concerned about him lacking a decent gimmick while at the same time praising his work. Proof that when you have a gift, people will notice. His character will evolve into a more accepted villain once more dimensions are added and soon enough the whole Rugby thing will be an afterthought.
The guy seriously does make me think of what wrestlers in the 50's and 60's would look like. His stance, posture, rugged appearance, and brute strength ooze the old school.
One notable downside is his current finisher when at least 3 of his signature moves are way more impressive. Although, his dead lift of Kofi made it look that much better.
