I think this guy has star rewitten all over him.

Though he's not my personal favorite, I do think he probably has a high ceiling. He has decent size, his athleticism is great, but his facial expressions is something that really sells me when I watch him wrestle. Also from what I've seen he's actually a good talker. Though I'm not sure where he'll go after the Street Profits split (I hope not for a long time) I think he very well could be one of the bigger stars to come out of NXT if booked correctly. Though I think with the way he has booked prior to this Takeover, his name doesn't really get mentioned with the likes of the Era, Gargano, Riddle, other top talent. I look forward to hopefully seeing him in singles action (would love to see both Profits have single matches) and see what he can really do.

Thoughts on Ford?

I wouldn't say he needs a gimmick overhaul, but they should tweak it a bit. Make him a bit more serious and give him more chances to speak. I can't really tell if they're supposed to be faces or cool heels that people cheer for. They play to the crowd but they come off a bit arrogant.

He definitely has something though. They've got one of the best entrances going. And his energy and charisma is what drives it home.

I thought they were going the heel route, when they mentioned they were going to get edgier. Not sure where they are going as champs. They can be fighting champs, or they easily end up going the cocky route like Asuka did towards the end of her run.

Curious to see how they book it. I could easily see them losing to the Era soon tho.

I love the guy but theres a part of me that doesnt see him as a megastar. Admittedly that’s mostly due to the fact that i have this weird bias about maineventers having bigger more muscular frames like EC3. But putting that bias aside, I think he’s something special

They did promise to be draped in gold... but if the profits do get to run with the belts for a while I hope they do go all the way with a heel run. Maybe they could be show offs and beat up jobbers for a few weeks. Give a team a chance to prove themselves and earn a shot

1. Needs to put on some weight because physically he looks a little too skinny
2. Lose the millstone of a tag partner

Guy has incredible potential. He has height, charisma, can talk and insane athleticism

He has great potential. That being said, the main roster is a crapshoot. He has all the tools to do really well, but that is never a guarantee.
I see superstar written all over him but Vince might not like his voice or something petty, or maybe he sneezes in front of Vince and gets buried. I'm done prognosticating about people's futures, as long as Vince's senile, crazy,old ass is in charge literally everything is a toss up.

He's a can't miss talent. His charisma jumps off the screen. I'm amazed it's taken them so long to do anything with him, but honestly it wouldn't surprise me at this stage if Triple H has been trying to hide him from Vince.
Apparently Vince only watched Takeovers and the carefully curated selection of talent clips that HHH sends him, but now that he's appeared on a TO Vince knows of his existence and can request him at any time.

He's a young Kofi Kingston. Kofi is a freak athlete and he was even more insane when he was younger.
