Conor O'Brian is the current number one contender for the NXT title. He is a wrestler who has had ups and downs on the NXT card as well. He started out as part of the Ascension, a supernatural tag team consisting of him and Kenneth Kameron playing what one could guess was demons or some sort of macho vampires. They ran roughshod as the dominant tag team for a while, feuding with the Usos and all was going well. Then Kenneth got arrested for fighting with a cop and was promptly released. Conor was taken of TV until they could figure out what to do with him and now he is where he is now. In the main event of NXT. But how far can Conor go with his current gimmick? It seems that since Kenneth got fired there isn't the exact amount of aura to his gimmick that there used to be. Kenneth did most of the crowd interaction of the two, yelling, growling and snarling to play up their demonic characters whilst Conor was more the in ring guy. The dude is charismatic but seemingly needs to refigure out how to get the crowd to really react to him. That is to be expected since it happens to a lot of tag wrestlers once they go singles. He also needs to polish his ring work some more in my opinion. He's solid but his main event match with Big E a few weeks back was really boring. Just two big guys clobbering him. The two following weeks he worked with smaller guys like Corey and Bo and that worked out just fine, he seems more at ease working with smaller /lighter guys since he can utilize power moves to greater effect. Also maybe tweak his character some more. He is still the Ascension but we need to figure out what it is. I'd currently not bring Conor up to the main roster just yet. I'd give him some more time to figure these things out. Work in the NXT main event to polish it all and then bring him up sometime after Summerslam, Survivor Series at the latest. That leaves enough time to establish him in the under card/midcard as the next supernatural monster leading up to WM31. What do you think that Conor needs to work on and when would you call him up?
