Haven't been watching a lot of AEW this year since January's always crazy busy, but I've been catching up over the last few days and during the Jake Atlas match on Rampage Jericho said there's a lot of Shawn Michaels in this guy.
Maybe it's just me, but I don't see it at all. I've found his matches fairly bland since he signed with AEW, and I never watched NXT. I get it from his knockoff HBK look, and with the reactions he gets from the crowd already if he actually worked Shawn's style he might really have something.
Him getting ragdolled for 30 minutes and pulling out a win from underneath could be great TV, but his heel work of outsmarting and dominating guys twice his size leaves me completely cold. Am I missing some great body of babyface work from his NXT run, or is what he's doing now just who he is?
