How long does Gargano, Cole etc really needs to be in developmental?

Gargano debuted 2015 in NXT. 4 years to learn how to look in the hard camera!
Thatīs just silly and one of the most stupid thing Iīve seen in wrestling. 4 years plus 10 years of experience before that.

I know a lot of pople defends it because many prefer NXT to main roster but it must be a nightmare for the wrestler. No chance Jericho, Guererro, Benoit etc would ever tolerate to be stuck in WWF developmental in the late 90īs.

As long as WWE wants them down there. They go up when they go up.

That said I'm hoping Gargano goes to 205 live because he'd be better off there.

Re: How long does Gargano, Cole etc really needs to be in developmental?

Gargano seems like he would cut his wrists if he was called up, i don't know how many interviews i've seen of him saying he doesn't wanna be called up and that in his mind NXT is the main roster. He's made no attempt to keep his feelings about the main roster a secret, he knows he's fucked when he's called up, Vince will take one look at him and see the guy that delivers his mail or pumps his gas, just an ordinary small guy.

Ricochet is doing fine right now because of how fucking great he is at big flashy moves, if he was a technical wrestler that didn't do all these cool high flying moves he'd be screwed. Gargano aint really got anything that flashy, so he can't really make up for his size with amazing mic skills or big flashy moves. Yeah he's for sure going to 205 Live, which isn't a bad thing as of late, but you're not looked at as a star or anything on there, you're just the pre show to the big ppvs.

Re: How long does Gargano, Cole etc really needs to be in developmental?

Why do people insist on seeing NXT as developmental when they haven't developed anybody since Dusty died?

Think of NXT as today's ECW or 206 Taped. It's where indy guys get to be indy guys without getting buried by Vince. If you like these guys you should want them to stay in NXT forever, there's no future for them on Raw or SDL.

Elias drifter character debuted couple of months after dusty died. Evans, Sullivan developed from scratch after dusty. Then you had AOP, Heavy Machinery, street profits were built from ground up. Even Gable and Jordan angle started just 3 weeks or so before he died and that was just teasing them, Bliss turning heel happened 2 weeks before he died.

While it's true the influx of experienced indie guys has made it harder for others to get tv time

Dusty was there when juice Robinson was goofing around, callihan wasn't getting on TV and when he did he was a hacker, there when Jordan spent years with no character development..his first match in fcw was September 2011.

He will flop on the main roster so keep him where he thrives.

I was being hyperbolic out of frustration; I love developmental and it annoys me when people call NXT developmental as a pejorative when very little focus is on development.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

I have a feeling Johnny might be a lifer in NXT; which is what I'd prefer. Cole will go to the main roster probably right after WM weekend Takeover in less than a year. He's fucked on the main roster.
