The NXT Scouting Report, 12/4: Sami Gets Slappy

TEAM THICKE vs VAUDEVILLAINS

The Vaudevillains continue to baffle me. On one hand, I really enjoy their matches in a pure wrestling standpoint – Aiden English’s snapmare into the ropes was especially vicious, and I’ll never tire of Simon Gotch’s mid-match hindu squat routine. But it’s still all so cute – especially when viewed with those short films sandwiched before and after matches. The only heelish shit they’ve done hinge on your feelings on crackin’ jokes about little people. Heels get their heat when they’re right and we’re mad about it or they’re assholes to somebody we already like. These guys just want to sell t-shirts and mustache wax. I joked last column that they’ll get their heat because regular crowds with think this is stupid, but that’s doesn’t sound like a long-term solution for two talent guys.

Buddy Murphy with some Ziggler-esque hot-tag fire! Umm, that’s about it.
