Working Fyter Fest in a fatal four way with three other guys who don't have the cred, and winning a Battle Royale where he was the only capable winner just paints Hangman in a negative light, IMO. Winning is totally right in that he must be built with a character intensive match against Kip and a pre-match video promo that promotes what this means to him, and why it means that. All Out is already sold but I think his match against Kip will mean more to him than facing Jericho because if he doesn't deliver the goods, the wider audience won't warm up to him. He's clearly in this position because the Elite love him. It's time to show why. I thought he had an average G1 with only a great match against Suzuki. I really gotta see more from him.
He's one of the few guys that must show why the Elite trust him ASAP (along with Spears). I want to try be optimistic about everything but the guys in big matches on the biggest show to date must be going into it with gale-force winds in their sails otherwise the show is going to take a battering in terms of reception.
