    I don't get it... what's his appeal? His entrance is way too long, his hand movements make him look like a ****** and his facial expressions are stupid. He's pretty average in the ring as well.

    You don't watch Nakamura. You experience Nakamura.

    He's the new Undertaker. He'll come good in 6 years.

    I'm new to Nakamura and struggling with the appeal. Does he save it for the PPVs? Is this not what he was doing before?

    I will say that he seems more interesting than Balor.

    Shinsuke has grown on me in the past few weeks. I still do however feel he either may need a manager or his character really needs to almost never talk and make a career in WWE out of making his actions speak and silently making statements unless he can either get a manager or work on his mic abilities. His English is fine, which is why I don't give him the "foreign ESL" pass as I probably would others on the mic like KENTA or The Great Khali.

    I found him pretty underwhelming when he first wrestled in NXT, considering the hype. I find him entertaining enough, but I'm not all like "OMG!, this guy is amazing."

    I thought you needed 10 non spam posts before you can start a thread.

    While his entrance remains good, in-ring, it has all been largely downhill since his debut versus Sami.

    I want to see him actually do some wrestling and not various kicks/knees.

    He's the "King of Strong Style." You won't see much more than strikes from him.

    Strong style is gloriously fucking stupid in a world where MMA is mainstream.

    The formula shows again. Popular NXT act shows up on main roster, people who don't watch NXT give it about 3 seconds, and they shit all over it.

    So, pretty much the usual with most, if not all the Main Roster call-ups in the past 2 years, then?

    His entrance is a work of a genius. I am a sucker for Japanese culture and like violin music like Lindsey Sterling and David Garret but cant think of anybody who knows something about music and can deny this epicness

    [youtube]m8izXHKZSXw[/youtube]

    That music along with his movement gives you kinda unique experience of epic proportions. Add that he is good in ring and really marketable in Japan and beyond and you will see what WWE see in him. They made "roid rage" Mahal Champion because of his looks and heritage. Imagine what you can do with somebody who has that and more.

    My only gripe is his promo work. That needs to be a lot, lot better. Although their biggest full time star is big Samoan guy with below average mic work. So not like its requirement to be best talker in order to be big star.

    Boxing in the 60s in the same era as Buddy Roger's worked punches.

    They are not protecting the business in the bars any more but still.

    I honestly expected this thread the night after his debut.

    It really hinges on him being able to work extremely stiff, which is why it probably worked better in Japan. Also, wrestling and MMA are much more interconnected in Japan than they are in America.

    Oh I know that Japan is all about strong style, and that most Japanese wrestlers, including Nakamura, actually have MMA records. Its not the best strategy to go with that gimmick on this side of the pond because of how popular actual MMA is over here. Nakamura has tons of natural charisma, he shouldn't have to rely on "strong style" to get over.

    I do watch NXT most weeks. Still didn't really live up to the hype even in NXT in my opinion.

    Other than needing a voice over using Arn Anderson's voice while he mouths the words, he is pretty not bad. He had an epic match with Sami in Nxt so I'm going by that match with my expectations.

    If this were an actual stunt show, I would call him amazing. It's not. I don't see how he works in any sort of storyline. It's just... strange. I really don't dislike him, though.

    His entrance is just way to long. So is 90% of the NXT roster. Especially Bobby Roodes entrance.

    Bobby Roode's entrance is the best thing going in NXT right now. I hope he doesn't lose that when he gets called up to the big leagues.

    If an entrance is the best thing about NXT then that should tell you all you need to know about it.

    If you have a great entrance and you're over you can get by without doing a lot, right?
