Yup. There's an obvious language barrier, but I'm not sure I can even site that as the reason I just couldn't get on board with him at NXT as much as others because Asuka blew through that barrier and is more awesome.

I'm a pretty big Nakamura fan but I didn't really enjoy much of his NXT work outside of the Sami match. Matches with Finn, Joe and Roode were ok but not great.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I've posted many times that I don't think non-English speakers have what it takes to get over in the US without some sort of masked/silent gimmick I but think Nakamura might be the exception. His charisma is just through the roof

Yea I really want to like Nakamura matches but outside of his match with Sami I've just been left feeling kinda meh. But, I still tune in to every match of his, maybe just for the entrance. *shrug*

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Nakamura speaks some English - not to the point where he can cut a 15-minute promo, but seems like he can throw in a few one-liners when needed

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

It's indicative of the general feeling of this forum that people are negative about Nakamura already.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Don't think anyone is being negative about Nakamura. It's more a case of not having faith in WWE's booking which I think is pretty justified at this point. I'd be more than happy to be surprised.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Smackdown has been pretty good at utilizing its people, so I have some optimism here. It's at least not going to be for a lack of trying, since it's clear that they're presenting him as a big deal and main eventer.

My only reservation is with the fans; he'll obviously be huge with the NXT audience, but not sure how his style will go over with everyone else.

I'm in for tonight to sweat AJ and Miz going to Raw. Both deserve a title reign this year and won't get one over there in the year of afk lesnar

Hopefully the shakeup can at least create some fresh feuds. Also Miz GOAT.

So does Ambrose to Raw mean Owens to SD?

I was hoping Ambrose would get drafted to the Great Khali's Indian Promotion
