Having seen some of Blacks work in Europe I knew what to expect here in NXT, but I didn't expect him to improve and adapt his game so quickly to be portrayed this good already.

How is everyone liking or disliking him so far?

Na he has more of a big star aura about him than Punk, same kind of mystique that Goldberg had when he first exploded on to the scene. Hopefully he won't have Punk's whiney self entitled attitude either.

Not seen much of NXT lately but he's really over and what they're doing with his character is very cool. Can see him being a future NXT champion, maybe even the one to dethrone Roode.

You'll see the good stuff about Black if you watch this weeks main event with him and Ohno Fletch. It's worth the 15/20 minutes it got given.

Bit late to the party but just watched this match. Really hard hitting very realistic looking match filled with painful looking striking.

Black is definitely a star in the making, he doesn't even need to do promos, his silence adds to the aura of his character.

Some dirt sheets are saying that Black is on the fast-track to the main roster, which I think would be a mistake. Right now he's still establishing his fan following and I really feel that's important for him to do before leaving NXT. I would also like to see him get either a NXT championship run or even an UK title run before showing up on the main roster. Because a solid (even if brief) championship run would help to develop his character in a different direction.

Technically Black can't have a UK Title run as he is Dutch....

Well he was already my favourite in NXT to begin with but now hes starting to become one of my favourite in the whole of wrestling

I think im getting the same levels of appreciation for him as i had for Ziggler way back when so you all know how high i must rate Black

The match against Cole was absolutely phenomenal and that is also alot down to Adam Cole and his ability to take a bump - the one across the two chairs in particularly looked brutal and there is no way that could not hurt.

I dont think the match last night will be the end of the feud, however id like to see him take the NXT title in perhaps a triple threat against Almas and Cole.

His striking is similar to CM Punk although personally seems alot more brutal and forceful as opposed to calculated in the way Punks was and then there is also the sitting down in the ring - dont think i ever seen Punk do a lionsault into the sitting position though

The guy won a few awards at the NXT awards during the Takeover kick off show and i think he deserves it, his feud with Velveteen Dream was incredible and it seems like nearly all of his matches are MOTN candidates although in all honesty last night was all about Almas v Gargano by the time the show was finished.

Almas v Black 1 v 1 should produce another classic as both guys can really go in the ring and have quite contrasting styles

Think id mark out even more if he made a surprise entry into The Rumble

I'm expecting Alestair Black to be in the main event of Takeover at wrestlemania weekend against Almas. I too consider him to be one of the very best characters in the WWE. I'm not quite ready to jump on the bandwagon enough to say he's one of my favorites in all of WWE, but I think he's got the potential to be clear up at the very top, maybe even John Cena level, but I'd call that a stretch. However HBK level? I think he can do that. Most likely he'll top out somewhere around where Sheamus level. Multi-time WWE champion, but finding his spot just outside the main event, and I think that's a conservative estimate for him.
