I think we can agree still needs some seasoning, but if he can get it all together he should go very far on the main roster with his charisma. That said, does the name bother you as much as it does me? It just screams "midcarder for life" to me. And that's something, provided he does get it all together, he shouldn't be. Feel the same way about Elias too (not the name, but the if he can't get it to all come together he could be really big).
I agree on the name completely, but that's always something that can be tweaked later. If they can come up with a better gimmicked name than "Patrick Clark" then he can always be "The Velveteen Dream" as a nickname instead. Maybe Nelson "The Velveteen Dream" Rogers as a tribute to Prince?
