Time will tell. He looked a bit out of shape physically during the closing of this weeks NXT, but hey he was allowed promo time too, so that's something of a start haha.

I think I could like Ohno if I didn't have to look at him. He looks like an out of shape piece of shit. He is also a pretty good wrestler and an interesting personality. I wonder what he would look like in Wyatt family gear? His gimmick look is ass though.

I really dont get this guy one bit.

He was one of the worst things, in fact probably the worst thing about the card last night.

Velveteen Dream pulled out a great performance but to me Ohno is just not good at all. Yes he can strike but he cant do anything else, he doesnt look like a wrestler and given that hes known as the KO artists, he didnt really live up to that last night with all of the clean strikes he landed.

He is the one guy i can see being released from NXT and never moving to the main roster

Wasn't he considered at one point in time to be the best of the Kings of Wrestling? (Chris Hero/Claudio Castignoli, Sarah Del Ray) 

From what I remember of his first run, he was very cerebral and CM Punk like in personality, but WWE didn't like the fact that he couldn't seem to keep his weight down so they dumped him.

So far from this new run he's very boring babyface in his promos and personality. If he were flipped heel and returned to his old self I think he'd get over again.

But maybe I'm remembering incorrectly, too.

Agree.

I do not get this guy, yet smarks talk about him like he's the next Shawn Michaels.

He looks like a out of shape bum and in the ring his offence is untidy and clumsy looking and pretty much just a collection of strikes.

A heel turn might help, he's mostly being used as enhancement at this point so can't hurt to give it a try.

Still think hes awful ... hes being used as a jobber in NXT which (given its a developmental brand) is not a good sign.

He doesnt have the look, his moveset seems limited (although i had read otherwise from outside of WWE) and the crowd are now starting to get bored of him.

Adam Cole Bay Bay did get a decent match out of him this week but Ohno surely cant be around for the long term

Yeah wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him end up on the 2018 releases list.

He looks out of shape(although he’s said to have a thyroid issue which causes him weight problems) and in the ring he just lacks polish, his style often looks clumsy and his timing is off.

As said when you are jobbing in development it’s rarely a good sign, Elias being the only exception to that rule so far I think.

I remember reading that people thought he (as Chris Hero) was the better all around wrestler between he, and his King's of Wrestling stablemates, Claudio Castignoli, aka Antonio Cesaro, and Sara Death Ray, aka Sara Del Ray.

I saw a match from the very early NXT between Cesaro and Ohno tagging against NXT champion Seth Rollins and CM Punk, and it was really quite good. Ohno looked a lot better back then in every way you could imagine.

He has now been lowered to the guy Ciampa beats up after hes beat Gargano up

coming out like hes supposed to be some sort of legit threat - come on man - hes really really bad.

Should be released soon

His evolution has been really weird in NXT. He seemed like a very CM Punk like character when he was a heel, but as a babyface he is just generic. I don't know that he'll be released soon, only because I think he might have been brought in not to go anywhere but rather just to help carry greenhorns through a match and make them look good. 

IF that is the case I would say he'll probably be around for quite a while. If I'm wrong, then yah, he's probably gonna be gone soon.
