• Taz Comments On Current NXT Champion’s Weakness
During a recent edition of The Taz Show, ECW Legend Taz talked about the one weakness of current NXT Champion Aleister Black that needs some work, who he thinks should be NXT Champion and more.
Below are the highlights:
On the one weakness of Aleister Black that needs some work:
“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 who he thinks should be NXT Champion:
“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.”
• Top WWE Star Bit By Police Dog – Not Cleared To Compete
PWInsider is reporting that SmackDown Live Superstar Shinsuke Nakamura was bitten by a police dog on Monday night before a WWE SmackDown Live event in Bakersfield, CA.
Nakamura then wasn’t cleared to compete at last night’s WWE Live Event and wasn’t cleared to compete on tonight’s SmackDown Live either (where he was scheduled to face Jeff Hardy for the United States Championship) as he has a very sore leg from the dog bite.
The police dog was brought backstage at last night’s Live Event as a part of a pre-show security check. The dog sniffed Nakamura’s leg and bit him without being provoked.
No word yet on when Nakamura will be cleared to return to in-ring action. We’ll keep you updated.
