The suplex machine may not be throwing fists inside of the squared circle anymore, but he’s still a big fan/follower of the product, and isn’t afraid to share his opinion whenever he feels like it. (One of the many perks of having your own podcast.) On a recent episode of the Taz Show, the one-man crime spree broke down the current NXT roster, specifically, current champion Aleister Black.
His promo work needs some work, in my opinion. The only reason why I say it needs some work is because he’s got a very awesome look. His physique, all the ink he has, his facial hair, his hair on his head, the way his face looks, the way he moves in the ring. His athleticism in the ring, his body of work as a pro wrestler, all the years he’s got in the business. The martial arts feel he has to his work and his kicks and his strikes, and all this jazz. It’s all an awesome potpourri of a very unique talent, hence his success in NXT.
And I do think once he’s on the main roster, he will be a big, big star, and I really believe that. He should be. The thing is, just me being blunt, his promo work loses me a little bit. It loses the darkness. He’s gotta certain darkness about him, right? You get that when you see him, a certain darkness. I’m not saying he shouldn’t talk, but I think he needs a little guidance on his talking. His vocabulary is great, very intelligent, he doesn’t have like a heavy duty accent or anything like that. But to me, it loses the darkness.
On the other hand, one superstar who Taz believes is ready to dawn the prestigious NXT title next…
The top one-percent. EC3
It’s almost like a Bobby Roode feel, but different. Like that type of feel, but as a heel. He’s veteran enough, he knows what he’s doing enough that he feels like a champ. He can cut a helluva promo. I think that’s who eventually has got to be the NXT Champion, in my opinion.
Good pick. EC3 dawns quite the presence, and his skill on the mic has always been one of his greatest attributes.
What do you think RingSide? Agree with the former ECW champion? Who do you think should be NXT champion next?
