I don't see vince looking at him and saying "God damn, bring that fucker up!"
Which is a shame, because he's easily the most complete guy in developmental, was over Rollins on everything except look imo(yknow...since he can talk).
I'm not convinced the way a guy looks contributes to how over his is tbh. My wife says Cody is the best looking guy on the show, he isn't over most places. I don't think Daniel Bryan is impressive looking, he's over. Punk, as pointed out many times, looks like a waffle house cook, he got over.
It seems to me, when wwe pushes a guy because of his look it tends to not work.
