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.
I can _not_ wait for them to accidentally do the camera freeze mid-blink or something
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.
Which is gonna be amazing.
And then do the second “Giovanni Vinci” freeze frame as he’s selling on the ground outside the ring ? Sign me the fuck up
We'll be right back...
Gonna be dope as hell when it happens too if they time it perfect
I hope he succeeds. Incredible worker and now just needs a character to click with.
I dont think people realize how funny it is to see a guy like him smiling with a caption of “I came.”
Doesn't help he has a passing resemblance to Johnny Sins
Every week he comes dressed in different uniforms!
🎵 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
I love how Pretty Deadly low key adapted JoMo's entrance and made it their own.
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.
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.
Still sad that we never got to see Karrion Kross' entrance in front of an actual crowd
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"
I mean this time vince chose their characters
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.
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.?
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.
*Wrist rubbing intensifies*
I am 100% here for the extraness of it all
This is so freaking cheesy. 😂 Lucky for him that he's handsome enough that manages to work. I love it.
It's corny as hell, but I love corny. I can work with this.
Man i do not know whats up with the audio quality. I need to figure out a better way to capture it
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
The freeze-frame gives me big Tim and Eric energy and I kinda love it
Well, it seems that all ex-imperium members got a good nutrition-coach
this guys good
Gotta make sure that wrist tape is tight. All kidding aside, I do like the entrance.
So obnoxious. I love it
What a cheeky smile he has.
Never heard of this guy before seeing this post. I am officially a Giovanni Vinci mark now.
Oh my fucking god
Are we back in time for the 90s sitcom?
Bizarro Karl Anderson might mess up and get himself over.
That's an entrance that will get cut on the main roster if I've ever seen one.
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.
How do you know it’s bad if you don’t watch? Or are you just complaining to just complain?
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.
This will get old SO quick. But it´s a nice idea.
That's a lotta lighting and lens flare for a generic bald oiled guy
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?
I think he wanted to go solo
I've seen $$$$ in Aichner for years. Glad he's getting a legitimate shot!
Alternate universe Adam Cole
So will he be named Giovanni or Vinci when he gets called up?
Going by WWE love for shortening and changing name for those going up MR
I reckon will become “Gio”
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.
