spikestoyiu - 2013-06-21 Sort of like an amped up William Regal. I don't watch anymore, but I like it. His CACC is a little slow and telegraphed, but I'm sure he'll get better.
Or, better idea: they should have just hired Josh Barnett and asked him to grow a mustache.
PlusDome - 2013-06-21 this style has to be slow or it doesn't read on television. It also requires a lot of cooperation and good acting from the opponent.
Wrestlers like this never work out because the draw is that character is undefeatable and can outmatch any opponent with technical prowess. It would be better to do a snooty Charles Atlas beach bully, that way it would be just as fun to watch them lose.
blue vein steel - 2013-06-21 he's still in the NXT developmental "league" so he has time to adjust his style, and i hope he starts his matches with an old school test of strength. I also hope that creative let's him keep the turn of the century catch wrestler gimmick.
Old_Zircon - 2013-06-21 I'd never heard this song or heard of Greg Keeler before. Finding out about him is worth 5 stars at least.
Sexy Duck Cop - 2013-06-21 When I was really big into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, one of my favorite running gags was to try to incorporate as many olde-tyme catch wrestling moves into my repertoire as possible. They're exactly as impractical in real life as they look. There is nothing more gratifying in life than catching a 220-pound MMA fighter in a ridiculous Figure Four Scorpion Hammerlock.
MongoMcMichael - 2013-06-22 So, Ryan Drago is 'The Well-Moustached Gotch Stylist', and Antonio Cesaro uses the Gotch-Style Neutralizer as his finisher.
Has someone in WWE suddenly started watching Japanese tapes? I'm all for Frank Gotch getting his props, but the WWE Creative's sudden boner for old-school catch wrestling is a bit of a head-scratcher.
