That's part of his charm. He's Tyler's dad.

He looks better than he used to. When he first turned up in NXT his poorly applied fake tan looked like matted shit in his chest hair.

I think his silvered quiff more than makes up for his lack of physique. I'd sell crack to children for that hair.

He does have a Jake Roberts 1996 look about him with his pot belly and skinny legs, well he did the last time I saw him anyway havent been keeping up with NXT UK after the first few weeks

It's my favourite thing about Moustache Mountain. You can look at both of them and think, "fucking hell, how does a vegan end up looking like that?".

I helped Mustache Mountain get a wasted guy into a taxi last night. In all the confusion Trent still managed to also clear the way for a disabled bloke to get past everyone. Total class acts

I know this was discussed a few pages back, but just to add, I loved Shayna wearing a Bolt Thrower shirt this week. It's a little thing, but adds another layer to her character rather than wearing her own merch.

That Gargano/Ciampa angle was shite. Gargano wrestled a gruelling match, even at points trying to actually win it, only for him to reveal it was some master plan to get Ciampa's guard down? He could've just left Ciampa the second the bell sounded or feigned his injury two minutes into his match, and it still would've had the same impact and the same result. Bag a shit Russo booking, that is. It's a shame as last week's show was fantastic.

The biggest crime NXT ever committed is extending the Gargano/Ciampa feud past the brilliant New Orleans match.  Hopefully, after the last year of threadbare bollocks, they can get Gargano back to being the amazing red-hot babyface that he truly excels at. This 'shades of grey' nonsense really soured NXT's 2018 after a great start and has led to a rather lukewarm first quarter.

After watching Rock-Austin from WM17, watching this week's fatal 5-way is like watching wrestling with the FFW button pressed down.  About a million spots crammed into 10 odd minutes.  You expect multi-man matches to be non-stop but still.  Pleased to see Cole get a shot - if he was 6 inches taller he'd be world champion, great talent.

I bang on about Ricochet a bit but I love how versatile the guy is. He's on Smackers this week having a "WWE" match with Sheamus, selling his arse off and working the crowd like Vince hammers home. He's also on NXT having a proper indy spotfest throwing out whacky shit that defies belief at times. Both after weeks of thrilling modern tag matches on Raw and Smackers. I laugh when people pigeon hole him because of this and that. He's incredibly complex. A great talent. Pity he's not a better talker.

I've been pleasantly surprised by Ricochet on the stick to be honest. He's just the right side of cocky and let's face it gets a long way just by being preternaturally handsome.

He is very good.  I wish he'd sell more but then I wish that about most wrestlers nowadays.  I think I prefer his Smackdown style to be honest.  It's just a pity that he's arrived in an era when everyone does crazy leaps over the top rope and all that.  It's not like Mysterio arriving in WWE when he was the only guy doing his style.
