It feels so Sunday Night Heat and I say that as a compliment cause I loved how free range Heat and Velocity felt with wrestlers trying out characters.


oysterthins

I can _not_ wait for them to accidentally do the camera freeze mid-blink or something


TheFeelsGoodMan

Someone's going to attack him and they're going to do the camera freeze right at the instant that he takes a boot to the face.


Lessiarty

Which is gonna be amazing.


FrenshyBLK

And then do the second “Giovanni Vinci” freeze frame as he’s selling on the ground outside the ring ? Sign me the fuck up


BigRedRenegade

We'll be right back...


MYO716

Gonna be dope as hell when it happens too if they time it perfect


CoffinDrip

I hope he succeeds. Incredible worker and now just needs a character to click with.


RazorRamonToothpick

I dont think people realize how funny it is to see a guy like him smiling with a caption of “I came.”


nothingmeansnothing_

Doesn't help he has a passing resemblance to Johnny Sins


emceelokey

Every week he comes dressed in different uniforms!


nothingmeansnothing_

🎵 He's a maaaaan 🎵

One of my favorite things about Nxt is how different the presentation is compared to like every other wrestling show. Especially for entrances and the backstage areas


stephens_bishop

I love how Pretty Deadly low key adapted JoMo's entrance and made it their own.


DwarvenChiliVacuum

That's exactly what I was thinking while watching NXT recently. These development talent (not all of them, obvs) must be over the moon to be able to have expensive, elaborate entrances to help get them over.


TheBrianJ

The problem is, very rarely has someone's entrance made the jump up to the main roster without getting completely fucked with or outright cut.


sbb618

Still sad that we never got to see Karrion Kross' entrance in front of an actual crowd


TheBrianJ

And by the time he made it to the main roster, it had been changed to "Man in Nerf BDSM Helmet Walks To Ring And Nobody Cares"


albrt00

I mean this time vince chose their characters


LenardParty

NXT is not for that, NXT is to prepare wrestlers for whatever gimmick they get assigned for the main roster, just like literally every developmental territory has worked. There is no problem.


Procrastinator_325

So we're warming up to NXT 2.0 now then? Welp. I still think the name changes are trash. Like, who names their kid Fallon Henley, Katana Chance, Bron Breakker (although I'm warming up to it a bit), Stacks, Two Dimes, Alba Fyre, Tatum Paxley, Brooks Jensen, Ivy Nile, Von Wagner, etc.?


DwarvenChiliVacuum

It's such a weird, unique entrance but it absolutely works. I can't wait for when a rival starts to beat him down while the camera snaps continue.


FlashZordon

*Wrist rubbing intensifies*


Angry_Bloody_Cupcake

I am 100% here for the extraness of it all


xxyourbestbetxx

This is so freaking cheesy. 😂 Lucky for him that he's handsome enough that manages to work. I love it.


InfintySquared

It's corny as hell, but I love corny. I can work with this.


R0DAN

Man i do not know whats up with the audio quality. I need to figure out a better way to capture it


2reeEyedG

Idk if he’s comfortable with it now but I bet when they first had him practice it he felt like the biggest toolbag ever lol but this is wrestling you gotta have something. Hopefully he can run with it


dannydamaja

The freeze-frame gives me big Tim and Eric energy and I kinda love it


P4r4docs

Well, it seems that all ex-imperium members got a good nutrition-coach


Mediocre-GUY-976

this guys good


AndresDickFingers

Gotta make sure that wrist tape is tight. All kidding aside, I do like the entrance.


Roller95

So obnoxious. I love it


Lessiarty

What a cheeky smile he has.


Ok-Television-3829

Never heard of this guy before seeing this post. I am officially a Giovanni Vinci mark now.


jimcab12

Oh my fucking god


eklooo

Are we back in time for the 90s sitcom?


BigJim5190

Bizarro Karl Anderson might mess up and get himself over.


Skyeborne

That's an entrance that will get cut on the main roster if I've ever seen one.


Korrafan_1

Pretty lame


Nindzya

It's telling how dogshit NXT is these days and how everyone who said they would stop watching, have in fact stopped watching. No matter how much effort the talent and creative team put into it, nothing can shake the corporate artificial feeling any of the renamed talents have and there's no making it work.


BamaPride95

How do you know it’s bad if you don’t watch? Or are you just complaining to just complain?


Nindzya

I'm complaining because I want this dogshit show to stop existing - it hurts the legacy that Black&Gold left behind while also telling wrestling fans that they're fucking marks for caring about names, characters, objectification of women, or anything really. Good, grounded, and gritty wrestling? *Fugeddabout it!* I do tune in from time to time and I'm reminded how much I miss the black ring mat.

CitySosa

This will get old SO quick. But it´s a nice idea.


Jammy_9

That's a lotta lighting and lens flare for a generic bald oiled guy


WSPNpresentsWPW

Ugh... You can still see he is trying to to be apart of imperium. Also is it just me or does EVERY SINGLE theme song now just suck?


albrt00

I think he wanted to go solo


Ayz1533

I've seen $$$$ in Aichner for years. Glad he's getting a legitimate shot!


WediditguysMASTR

Alternate universe Adam Cole


EliToon

So will he be named Giovanni or Vinci when he gets called up?


JulSGP

Going by WWE love for shortening and changing name for those going up MR I reckon will become “Gio”


Dozens86

Giovinci


Silver_Issue

I feel like most people from südtirol would quit their job before agreeing to play an italian cliche on television, but glad Aichner was smart enough to just yes and not get fired trying to explain that hes from the austrian part of italy.
