    Giddy, you posting up pics and videos of him isn't going to make him better. Hes boring, and one of the big reasons I stopped watching NXT. I tune in once in a while to see how the shows doing, and Bateman is still the same - decent in the ring, and boring to listen to. I couldn't careless if he got released.

    I have to disagree with you. I think he's very charismatic. He's entertaining, naturally funny, and him and D-Bryan actually got he normally-dead NXT crowd cheering. He's lacking in the ring skill part of things, but is steadily improving, and I think he'd make a great US or IC champ one day.

    If hes a future IC/US champ, God help us. I want talent that can actually wrestle, and be serious. Bateman just comes off as a joke to me (don't care if hes charismatic. Santino is charismatic, but I still see him as a comedy guy). Same goes for Curtis, and Titus.

    I also disagree. Bateman is one of the better talents to come from FCW. He's good in the ring and he's got personality. I'm yet to be convinced that he can get to the top of WWE, but I wouldn't mind seeing him on the main roster in a tag team or feuding for a mid-card title in a year or so.

    1,000% agree with Tommy. I'm also a big fan of Bateman.

    From the few episodes I have seen for FCW he has been 1 of the best and he and Curtis made NXT season 4 a lot more entertaining. Wasn't the best heel I've seen but face Bateman should be given a proper chance. I'm like Tommy though, not convinced he is main event standard but he deserves a mid-card level push to see how he does.

    Of course he can become a midcarder for the WWE. But I just don't see anything great in him. That's all I'm saying. To be honest, they should be bringing up other FCW talents besides Bateman and Curtis. But if they don't have good storylines for them, it's a no go.

    They could give him a chance on SD to see if his gimmick/character or whatsoever is going to work

    Exactly. Curtis and Bateman were brought up before HHH put this in effect. And this is exactly why we're still waiting to see Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins and the like on the main roster.

    Truth is, Curtis and Bateman are both good in the ring. Curtis lacks some personality for me, but Bateman oozes charisma. That's where he's better. But IMO, both guys are for keeps, as they're still young and still developing.
