Which member of Nexus will have the better career?

Now to be fair i'm not going to include Wade Barret on this poll because we all know he has the brightest future out of all of them and don't Bryan Danielson. To me its clearly Micheal Tarver. The guy just has great personality and I like his thug mentality. The powerslam move he used on Yoshi on Monday looked awesome and I hope he decides to use it as finisher.

Justin Gabriel will become what Jeff Hardy should have been.

Re: Which member of Nexus will have the better career?

Skip Sheffield has it all, he can talk and can wrestle and we all know Vince has a thing for big men so it's him for sure, he is truly once in a lifetime superstar, you will never see another like him, if you had a guy on your roster like Skip wouldn't you want him as the poster boy of your company? just imagine how many kids would want a Skip Sheffield shirt with his face on it.

Re: Which member of Nexus will have the better career?

I truly think Justin Gabriel is gonna become the biggest star out of all of them (including Wade Barrett). He is gonna replace Jeff Hardy in the role of the guy that the kids look up to and the girls scream for.

Re: Which member of Nexus will have the better career?

Tarver.

At first I thought all members not named Barrett were destined to be future endeavored, but I've come around on a few of them, and Tarver is at the top of the list. He not only appears to possess a solid foundation as far as the tools necessary to succeed are concerned, but he has one thing you can't manufacture: a presence. Granted, much of this has to do with the badass bandanna, which makes you wonder why no one else thought of that before.

As for the others:

- Gabriel: I'm going to reserve judgment because he looks intriguing and he hasn't had the chance to do much on his own yet. However, he has a lot of work to do to prove that he isn't a one trick pony like Bourne.

- Sheffield: Could be Batista Jr. at best, Snitsky Jr. at worst. Again, like Gabriel, it's hard to get a good read on him when he's always surrounded by the six other guys. Good look, good power skill set. He's trying on the mic, though he isn't very good yet. Would probably benefit from staying in some sort of stable even beyond Nexus' completion.

- Otunga: Has the look - which might be good enough for WWE - but other than that is awful. He is the prototypical WWE machine product. His wrestling is formulaic, and his promos sound like he's trying out for the high school improv team. Once Nexus is over he may challenge Morrison for the title of "worst guy getting pushed."

- Slater: No future. Doesn't have the look, doesn't have the tools. Nothing about him stands out. He'd need to be in a tag team to survive.

- Young: Same assessment as Slater, although I do think he could have a future as a Funaki-style jobber. He's proven he can take a beating effectively, which isn't to be underestimated.

I agree with this entire assesment. Allthough i would add that i dont really think Gabriel has to do much more atm to succeed. Guys like Hardy and Kofi have gotten majorly over and won numerous titles without even opening their mouths, and Gabriel has the in ring talent and the look to replicate this. Main eventing is a whole nother story though. But i see a solid mid card career in front of him without doing anything more than he does now.

This right here. Tarver has upped his game so much that it's ridiculous. I was actually a fan of his on NXT and knew he had the makings of being a star but now he has just shined during every opportunity that they give him. I've said it before and I'll stick by it. In about 2 or 3 years he could be a world champion.

Re: Which member of Nexus will have the better career?

don't really know why people keep equating justin gabriel with jeff hardy. for one, jeff hardy is pretty shit in the ring, gabriel is actually athletic and can kind of wrestle. HOWEVER, gabriel doesn't have the personality. jeff hardy was a charismatic motherfucker, even if it didn't show in his mic skills. he looked weird, he dressed weird, he was the "anti-establishment" type for the kids to get behind. gabriel is just a normal looking dude with an accent and a weird haircut. until he starts busting out paint all over his body and weird mesh hand socks, he won't get anywhere close to what "jeff hardy should have been."


i hope Michael Tarver. and i do feel like the WWE does see something in him (its hard not to). dudes a beast.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.
