Best: How The Hell Did That Crowd Not ‘That Was Awesome’ Bo’s New Entrance

I’m starting to believe that a solid 25% of my enjoyment of NXT is based on their dedication to great ring entrances. It’s a woefully underappreciated part of getting a wrestler over. Usually on Raw they just give a guy rock music and have him hold his arms out on the stage and go RAAHHHHHH, or they have him dance. NXT’s a different animal. Tyler Breeze was instantly over with everyone in the building based solely on the awesomeness of his ring entrance. Adam Rose was another example, especially in the long long ago before they gave him the Jimmy Hart sound-a-like version of his entrance music.
