Adam Rose was booked for the first segment at Raw because there was a feeling in the company that perhaps the crowd didn’t react to him enough for his debut because they were tired late in the show. As noted earlier this week, it’s been said that there is a bigger story but it hasn’t been explained. We’ll see how the Chicago crowd reacts to him at Payback.
I think the consensus is that the gimmick worked for the small crowd at NXT but it doesn’t translate well in front of big crowds on national TV.
