The fall of the total package? Ohno, the former Chris Hero of independent wrestling fame was one of the hottest signings of 2012. Brought in with a lot of internet hype to what was then called FCW. The man was an independent scene MVP, hyped as one of the best ring workers out there and a damn good speaker. People didn't think he would be in developmental long before rejoining his former tag partner Antonio Cesaro and his independent friends like Punk and Daniel Bryan on the main roster. Here we are over a year later and the knockout kid is still in developmental and quite frankly isn't doing his best. Ohno's NXT work if I may say so myself has been underwhelming. He's an insanely athletic guy, being able to bust out some good high flying moves considering his height, wrestle physically and stiff, wrestle technically and with the use of power moves, his indy repertoire showcases this. But his NXT run has except for at the start (the Richie Steamboat feud) and the Regal feud been very underwhelming from the in ring point of view. His NXT matches have been slow and relying on a lot of rest holds, something that goes against his supposed knock out artist gimmick. He doesn't seem motivated to work. The same problem can be seen in his promos. On the independents Ohno was one of the best talkers, busting out catchphrase filled old school style promos about concussing with kicks and KOing with elbows. But his NXT promos have not delivered, and it cannot really be blamed on scripts since NXT doesn't use them, instead using bullet points and topics. Ohno just doesn't deliver promos with his old flair. tying in with his ring work is his shape. Ohno has never been the most cut or chizzled guy but his look right now needs improvement. He's out of fucking shape without sugar coating it. He has low handles and what risks becoming man boobs. I'm not saying he needs to go Triple H or Mason Ryan but he could get more defined and lose some weight, WWE has coaches for that sort of thing to help him if he just put the effort in. Not to mention his ring gear has been ugly since signing which only adds to the bad look. Ohno is very close to the total package in abilities and potential, but he is nearing 35 years old and it pains me to see a guy I want to see succeed just do nothing and seem unmotivated down in developmental. Some would say to just debut him on the main roster to get him motivated, but I would prefer to promote someone who is working his ass off 110 % in developmental rather than someone who thinks he doesn't need to give his all to earn his keep. We don't need another Kaval. What would you do to fix the Kassius Ohno "problem"? Gimmick change? repackage or something else? Discuss.
