    I don't think he's out of shape, i've watched him work.
    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.

    Mr. Backlund continued wrestling under the new gimmick of an out of touch, yet highly dangerous, maniac out to teach the new generation a lesson.[3] He often appeared in business suits, had a hyperactive personality, and used (or, often, misused) large words to sound important. He also demanded that he be addressed as "Mr. Backlund". He would only sign autographs for wrestling fans if they could recite the names of all of the US Presidents in chronological order

    Hmm, not to beat a dead horse but what about Bronson, a skilled wrestler who is a big guy?

    We recently noted that WWE was interested in signing Ring of Honor star Mike Bennett, the fiancee to former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis. Maria tweeted the following teaser last night:

    "Heading to a show with @ROHMikeBennett I think there are only a few more we will be going to together on the Indys. #DREAMBIG"

    - WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will be making a special appearance at the next set of NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University on January 10th.

    - Jim Ross commented on last night's NXT tapings via Twitter:

    "Another 3hr, NXT taping in books. 1st two hrs arguably our best 2 shows 2 date. Next taping @FullSail Thurs Jan 10 w/ HOFer @ShawnMichaels."

    - Ross was also asked about WWE NXT star Adrian Neville, formerly known as Pac. JR replied:

    "He's a keeper."

    seriously gryhp, a 5min match?? even for what it was it was just OK. he had a couple of nice throws and his matwork wasn't bad it wasn't really impressive either.

    i'm not sold at all based on that.

    then you can't really xpect people to agree with you that he's ready for the main roster if there's nothing for us to form an educated opinion on.

    Yknow...Ryback too, but he's been in developmental forever so he did wait on him.
    The concussion that guys like Kofi,MVP,Benjamin,Burke,and even Cryme Tyme got from hitting the glass ceiling says "ouch" right back at you. Muscles gets you noticed, but as of late , it buys you about 15 seconds of fame.The big muscle pass is slowly losing itd vslue in today's WWE.

    If you ask me though Burke, Benjamin, and Cryme Tyme weren't exactly going to go far regardless if there was any glass ceiling or not. MVP was only with WWE for four years before he left for New Japan and I don't think his WWE run was really bad at all. Kofi is the only guy who I think should be higher up on the card than he currently is.
    Eh, Comics is a pretty cool guy...
