I don't know about "baby face", but certainly top face. He may not be the top high flyer, or even a sound technical wrestler. However, Enzo Amore is one of the most entertaining stars on the roster. There are other stars like Neville, Itami, Woods, and others that aren't a part of this division right now.
I like the idea of them two but I think it needed to be Neville as the heel and Zayn as the face. Then you could have other feuds of say Kalisto/Breeze, Aries/Woods and Enzo/Kendrick. The other guys like Swann, Perkins, Gallagher, Metallik, Nese, Gargano and Ciampa could be proving themselves in NXT.

Re: Five Lessons to be learned from the early failure of the Cruiserweight Division

Their biggest problem is dropping a group of largely unknown talent in front of people who enjoy things like Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar squashing people. The knuck dragging mouth breather fans, and the little kids who don't know any better. The CW division is something I enjoy. With that said it was put in place so that people who like that get actual wrestling so they can continue to fuck off with the actual roster. It's a diversion for us in an effort to quell negative reaction to the main product.

But it hasn't worked, people still want good shit for the other 4 hours and 45 minutes of WWE programming a week sans ppv and nxt. And that's why it's not working atm. But guys like Neville and Aries can change that. More heels is a good start. Another would be to tape at live events instead of piggybacking SDL. That way you get smaller crowds who aren't waiting for it to be over so they can flap their dicks on SD.
